Central Marin Police arrested a 54-year-old San Francisco man Tuesday on a host of allegations that he stole $4,000 in merchandise in a pair of shoplifting incidents at a kitchen store and a sporting goods store in the Corte Madera Town Center.
Carl Hostetter was arrested Tuesday at around 4 p.m. Tuesday at a bus stop at Tamalpais Dr. and Hwy. 101, according to police. Hostetter was detained on suspicion of commercial burglary, possession of stolen property, a no-bail felony warrant from a previous burglary charge and possession of burglary tools, as he was carrying stolen items in a foil-lined bag to security detectors.
Police said they were tipped off Tuesday afternoon by an employee at Columbine, a kitchen retail shop in the Town Center. The employee said a man they recognized from a pair of shoplifting incidents – of $2,600 in merchandise on June 18 and another $400 in a separate theft – was in the store.
