‘Suspicious person’ frequenting Crowley Lake area

Mono County Sheriff’s Office press release

The Mono County Sheriff’s Office has identified a suspicious person frequenting the Hilton Creek, Crowley Lake, Long Valley, Aspen Springs and Tom’s Place communities.

This person has a criminal history but is currently not wanted for any crime.

A person matching the description of the known person was seen by a homeowner peering into garages. The person of interest stated he were looking for a delivered package and stated he lived at a location nearby. The homeowner thought this suspicious and knew his statement to be false.

The person of interest is a male white, 67 years old, brown hair and brown eyes, 5’8”, 165 pounds. He is usually riding a road bicycle, often at a slow pace, and will stop and feign taking photographs.

He is believed to be camping in the area.

These communities are advised to keep their garage doors closed, doors locked and vehicles secured. Community members observing any suspicious activity are encouraged to call the Mono County Sheriff’s Dispatch at (760) 932-7549, option 7.

    If, as the press release states, the Sheriff “has identified” a suspicious person in the Crowley area, why doesn’t the Sheriff reveal that person’s identity?

    I think what the Sheriff’s press agent meant was that the Sheriff has a description of a person acting suspiciously in the Crowley area.

    The Sheriff hasn’t “identified” anybody, suspicious or otherwise.

      I appreciate the news and do not care if there is a name attached or not. Glad to know that the Sheriff’s Department has identified someone and is making the public aware of what is going on in the community.

      Wirds M. Ater, maybe because it’s not illegal for being a “suspicious person” or “peering into garages.”

        Then why did the Sheriff put out a press release warning about the suspicious person?

        I don’t get your point.

        My point is that it is inaccurate to say someone has been “identified” when that person is not, in fact, “identified.”

        “Described” yes, “identified” no.

        Tinner….might be illegal….and dangerous for who’s doing it,depending how far onto ones property they’re doing the “peering into garages”…sounds like a tweeker to me running around up there….
