Originally published as a Kings County Sheriff’s Office press release – 

“On Friday, November 19, 2021 at approximately 2210 hours, deputies were dispatched to the KC Bowl in Hanford to investigate a vehicle burglary. The victim stated that while he and his family were enjoying an evening of bowling, the rear window of their vehicle had been shattered and a backpack stolen. There were various items in the backpack to include several debit cards.

Numerous fraudulent charges from local businesses posted to the victims banking account while they were bowling.
The following day, the investigating Deputy contacted the businesses and obtained video surveillance of two suspects purchasing merchandise with one of the stolen debit cards. The video surveillance showed the suspects leaving in a gray Ford Focus.

The Deputy searched the surrounding area near KC Bowl and located a gray Ford Focus that matched the one seen earlier in the video in the 9000 block of E. Lacey Blvd.

The Deputy contacted the owner of the Ford and discovered a subject named Sean Ryan had driven the vehicle during the time of the incident. The Deputy made contact with Sean and saw he was the same person in the video making purchases with the stolen debit card. Additionally, the Deputy discovered merchandise from one of the store purchases in the trunk of the Ford.

Sean admitted to possessing a small amount of Methamphetamine and a syringe in his pants pocket. He told authorities he used the syringe to inject Heroin.

Sean was arrested and booked into Kings County Jail for possessing illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia. The burglary and theft investigation was forwarded to the Kings County District Attorney’s Office for review of prosecution. The charges of vehicle burglary, vandalism, false personation and credit card larceny were suggested to be filed against Sean Ryan as well.

Authorities are still attempting to identify the second suspect.”
