Sentry360 Launches Open-Platform NVR Edge Devices For Plug-And-Play IP Video Surveillance

Lakeport Police are asking for the public’s help in finding a man they say is responsible for a string of downtown burglaries committed last week. Jeffery William Stokes, 25, is sought in connection with break-ins at several Lakeport businesses. A second suspect, Kimberly Jo Harvey, 46, already is in custody. “It’s definitely a substantial case,” Lt. Jason Ferguson said Friday. Multiple items were stolen from each place, he said, declining to estimate the value of the items stolen. Harvey was arrested Jan. 9 on suspicion of burglary and possessing stolen property and burglary tools after police found her at a motel room that the hotel manager connected with a man matching Stokes’ description, police said. That man had been stealing coins from the motel’s laundry room, the manager told police. Video surveillance showed a man registering for a room under the name Stokes. The man’s appearance matched that of a man seen on video, along with a woman, on burglarizing a local dry cleaning business two days earlier, police said. An officer went to the room registered to Stokes. He was not there but police said the officer got verbal permission from a woman there, later identified as Harvey, to enter the motel room. The officer saw multiple items he believed to be stolen, including jewelry and blank checks. There also were bolt cutters and other devices considered to be burglary tools, police said. The Lake County District Attorney on Monday filed a complaint accusing Stokes, believed to be […]
