A teen was arrested Friday afternoon after he allegedly stole a car from a Sonoma resident’s home just a day after breaking into the same home, according to the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office. Eighteen-year-old Nathan Paul Wilson, of Rohnert Park, was spotted driving a stolen 2002 Audi sedan on Bennett Valley Road in unincorporated Santa Rosa around 2:37 p.m. Friday. Deputies pulled him over at Fourth Street in downtown Santa Rosa and he was arrested, sheriff’s officials said.
The car theft stemmed from a residential robbery from Thursday around 3 p.m. when a Sonoma resident living in the 400 block of Greve Lane returned home and saw two young males fleeing from his garage, sheriff’s officials said. The two suspects had apparently stolen items from his house and loaded them into his Audi parked in the garage. The man called Sonoma police who searched for the suspects, with assistance from the sheriff’s office, but could not find them in the area. Around 1 a.m. Friday morning the suspects returned to the victim’s home and stole the Audi from the garage as they had stolen his car keys during the initial burglary, according to sheriff’s officials.
The resident reported his car stolen and Wilson was arrested that afternoon, sheriff’s officials said. When Wilson was arrested, deputies found a wallet with credit cards belonging to a Rohnert Park resident that had been stolen from a locked vehicle in Rohnert Park. Wilson had allegedly been fraudulently using the credit car at various stores in the Santa Rosa area. Wilson was booked into county jail on charges that included vehicle theft, possession of a stolen vehicle, and residential burglary. He was held on $80,000 bail. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Detective Sal Borruso at (707) 565-2185.
