A 24-year-old man with four warrants for his arrest has been named as a suspect in a string of Sausalito home burglaries, according to the Police Department.

Chas Langley, who was issued the four warrants through the Marin County Sheriff's Office, is suspected of burglarizing households in Sausalito and possibly other areas in the county, police Sgt. Bill Fraass said.

Langley is about 6 feet and 2 inches tall and about 280 pounds.

Seven households have been burglarized in the city during daylight hours since mid-August in a similar style, Fraass said.

The burglar used extreme, bodily force to enter every home. Fraass said the burglar took valuables in plain sight that were easy to carry such as electronics equipment.

He said the homes were most likely picked randomly.

Aside from an outstanding, no-bail warrant for probation violation, Langley is wanted for three, $50,000 warrants that were issued Thursday. One is for receiving or possessing stolen property. Another is for obstructing or resisting a police officer. The third is for assault with a deadly weapon other than a firearm.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Langley is asked to call Detective Matt Shoup of the Sausalito Police Department at (415) 289-4118.
