A photographer was arrested Wednesday in Corte Madera on a warrant from Southern California accusing him of possessing obscene matter involving a minor less than 14 years of age, authorities said Thursday.
Carl Jewett Williams, 51, was arrested at 9 p.m. Dec. 19 at a residence in the 100 block of Hillpath in Corte Madera, according to Marin County sheriff's booking records.
Williams was arrested on a warrant issued in Orange County, Calif., which charges him with violating 311.11(A) PC, according to booking records.
"We were notified yesterday he might be in the area," San Anselmo police Cpl. Sethi Jervan said in a phone interview. "We located him, confirmed his ID and arrested him."
Bail for Williams was listed earlier Thursday at $50,000. He was released on bail and he was no longer in custody as of Thursday evening, Sgt. Bill Hernandez of the Marin County Jail said in a phone interview.
Hernandez said the Sheriff's Department could not release booking photos of individuals no longer in custody.
A watch commander with the Orange County Sheriff's Department said Thursday evening the warrant for Williams appeared to be issued by Harbor Justice Center in Newport Beach.
Williams could not be reached to comment for this report. Booking records stated his address is in Corte Madera.
San Anselmo police are in the process of consolidating with Twin Cities police, who patrol Corte Madera and Larkspur. The two agencies are on track to become the Central Marin Police Authority on Jan. 1.
