A San Joaquin County man faces charges of possession of a stolen vehicle, stolen property, and burglary tools after police tracked one of the items to his home via GPS.

On January 18, a Union City woman reported that her laptop, which had been stolen, was pinging at a home on West Towery Court in Stockton.

Deputies responded to the residence and immediately located a stolen Toyota Corolla parked in the driveway. Shortly thereafter, 26-year-old Kristopher Fernandez came outside and accessed the car, at which point deputies intercepted.

Since Fernandez was already on probation for stolen vehicle charges, deputies had clearance to conduct a probationary search, which turned up not only the stolen laptop but other stolen electronics, stereo equipment, jewelry, and designer bags and purses, as well as numerous vehicle keys and fobs and burglary tools.

Fernandez was booked on the aforementioned charges as well as felony vandalism as he was reportedly trying to kick out the back window of the patrol car during his arrest.
