On Monday, January 6th, 2020, 40-year-old Storm S. Corral of Sonora was arrested for Burglary and Conspiracy to Commit Burglary.
Just after 6:00 am on Sunday, December 22nd of 2019, our office received a call for a burglary alarm sounding at a business in the 700 block of Mono Way. Officers arrived on the scene and found no signs of forced entry
from the exterior of the building. During a search of the scene, Officers located a man-sized hole in the ceiling of the business that led into a vacant building upstairs where forced entry was made through a rear door. It was determined that the burglary occurred sometime after 4:00 am.
Armed with surveillance evidence along with tips from engaged members of the community, the investigating officer eventually identified Storm Corral at the suspect.
On January 6th, the investigating officer was able to locate Corral, who subsequently confessed to the crime. Corral was transported to the Tuolumne County Jail where he was booked on charges of burglary and conspiracy to commit a crime, with a bail set at $50,000. Additionally, because Corral was on Post Release Community Supervision with a history of theft and burglary, the Tuolumne County Probation Department placed a hold on Corral.
The Police Department knows that Corral had an accomplice while committing this crime and we are working to identify that person. If anyone has information that may be useful to this investigation, please call the Sonora Police Department at 209-532-8141.
We would like to thank our community members that helped us to bring yet another criminal to justice.
