San Francisco Man Arrested for Warrants and Possession of Stolen Property in Sausalito

Post Date:02/11/2019 4:00 PM

On Sunday, February 10, the Sausalito Police Department received multiple calls from residents regarding a man walking onto properties and looking into parked vehicles. The man was disheveled in appearance and his bare feet were covered in mud.

Officers stopped and contacted Mark Kelley, age 38, of San Francisco. A warrant check showed that Kelley had an outstanding misdemeanor warrant out of San Francisco. Officers did not believe that Kelley was being honest when he said he was sightseeing. Kelley was subsequently transported to Marin County Jail to be booked for the warrant.

While Kelley was being booked at Marin County Jail, officers were investigating a recovered stolen vehicle that was located in the 600 block of Bridgeway. During the investigation, the officers noticed a distinct odor that they recognized to be similar to the odor that Kelley was emitting. The investigating officer then inquired about the vehicle keys that were stolen with the vehicle. The vehicle owner described the keys and the officer recognized the description of the keys as the same keys that were located in Kelley’s possession. Through photographs, the vehicle owner was able to positively identify the keys. Additional stolen property found in Kelley’s possession was identified as being stolen from a second victim's vehicle.

Kelley was booked into the Marin County Jail on an outstanding warrant and possession of stolen property.

The apprehension of Kelley and the subsequent investigation would not have been possible without the diligent reporting of Sausalito residents. The Sausalito Police Department would like to encourage Sausalito residents to continue to call the police department regarding any suspicious person or suspicious activity they observe. See something, say something!

Any questions about the incident may be directed to Lieutenant Stacie Gregory at (415) 289-4170 or
