Calaveras County authorities have issued an arrest warrant for a man suspected of burglarizing a laundromat in Arnold back in July.
On July 16, deputies responded to the 2000 block of Highway 4 regarding a reported burglary at a local coin-operated laundromat. Deputies discovered that a coin machine worth $3,000 had been vandalized and about $400 in coins stolen.
Security footage obtained from the scene and other evidence eventually led to the identification of one William Thomas Rorabeck as the primary suspect.
Sheriff’s Detectives assumed the investigation and coordinated with the District Attorney’s Office to secure a warrant for Rorabeck’s arrest, and are calling on the public to keep an eye out for him.
Authorities say Rorabeck has an address in Valley Springs but is known to frequent Arnold. He stands approximately 6-foot-4 and weighs about 300 pounds, with brown hair, hazel eyes, and a tattoo on his right forearm.
Those with information relevant to the case, particularly Rorabeck’s whereabouts, are encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Office at 209-754-6500 or the anonymous tip line at 209-754-6530.
