On Sunday, January 17, 2021 at approximately 1:30 pm, patrol officers responded to a residence on the 3900 block of Markridge Rd regarding an unknown male who had entered a resident’s yard and requested to use their pool.
Upon arrival, officers located the suspect standing next to an opened fire hydrant on the residential property with water pouring out of it. The suspect turned off the fire hydrant and began walking away from officers but was detained pending further investigation. The male originally told officers that he lived on the property but could not provide the address and gave a false name. Eventually, the male was identified as 35-year-old Chris Hrisomallis (transient).
An investigation revealed that while on the property Hrisomallis had gained entry to the residence, retrieved multiple items from inside and then tampered with two vehicles parked in the driveway (he later admitted to trying to start both vehicles, but being unsuccessful). During a search of Hrisomallis, officers located keys to both of the victim’s vehicles, along with a remote control for the gate to the residence and other personal items that were removed from the residence.
Hrisomallis was subsequently arrested and booked for burglary.
