* Samantha Sullivan Petaluma woman was arrested with alleged Department of Motor Vehicles paperwork

A 22-year-old Petaluma woman was arrested last week for possession of stolen property and other charges after police found items taken out of unlocked vehicles in a bag she was carrying. Officers responded to Rainer Circle at Tulare Street at 8:30 a.m. Thursday where a woman was reportedly talking to herself and walking around with no shoes on, according to Petaluma police.

Samantha Jean Sullivan, of Santa Rosa, was apparently on felony probation, police said. Officers searched a grocery bag Sullivan was carrying and found Department of Motor Vehicles paperwork, a camera and other items that did not belong to her, police said.

During questioning Sullivan allegedly told investigators that she had taken the items from two unlocked vehicles parked in the area, police said. Sullivan was arrested for theft from a vehicle, possession of stolen property and violation of probation. She was booked at Sonoma County jail.
