The wife of a San Jose man who was allegedly involved in two armed robberies earlier this month was arrested in San Jose today on suspicion of possessing stolen property, a Los Gatos police captain said. Christina Michelle Antuna, 24, was arrested without incident near her apartment at about 10 a.m., Capt. Alana Forrest said.Antuna is the wife of Samuel Edward Michael, 26, who was arrested in San Jose on March 25 in connection with two armed robberies on March 19. On that day, Michael allegedly robbed a female victim at 200 Saratoga Avenue in Santa Clara. Around 10 p.m. that evening, Michael is also suspected of hitting two women in their 40s with a metal object as they were walking on East Main Street in Los Gatos. He allegedly took a purse from one of the victims.Both women were taken to a hospital with head injuries.Forrest said police obtained a warrant for Antuna’s arrest Tuesday after authorities found a purse and cell phone belonging to Michael’s victim in the couple’s apartment along with two other pieces of stolen property associated with a separate case.Antuna was booked into the Santa Clara County main jail on four counts of possession of stolen property. Michael faces seven felony charges and two misdemeanors, including two counts of armed robbery, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of unauthorized use of an access card, one count of vehicle theft, one count of burglary, one count of possession of stolen property and a probation hold.The investigation into the armed robbery involved the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office, Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Department and Santa Clara Police Department.Forrest said authorities are working on other investigative leads that might bring further charges against Antuna.
