Three people were arrested outside of Petaluma after a Sheriff’s Deputy found eight stolen catalytic converters in the trunk of their car, officials said today. The three were stopped after Deputy Mike Moriarty spotted a vehicle at the Gas-N-Shop at U.S. Highway 101 and Kastania Road around midnight on Thursday that had fraudulent registration stickers,according to Sgt. Dave Pedersen. Moriarty learned the driver and one of his two passengers were parolees out of Modesto and not legally allowed to be in Sonoma County, so he conducted a parole search, Pedersen said.
A search of the vehicle turned up items associated with burglaries and eight catalytic converters in the trunk-items commonly stolen for their scrap metal value. Driver James Luke Osborne, 25, of Modesto, was arrested on suspicion of violating his parole, possession of stolen property and possession of burglary tools. His passenger, Brett Hegwood, 26, also of Modesto, was arrested on suspicion of violating his parole, possession of stolen property and possession of burglary tools. Both are being held without bail.
A second passenger, Crisandre Brooke Clements, 25, of Turlock, was
arrested on suspicion of possession of stolen property, possession of
burglary tools, possession of a controlled substance, smuggling a controlled substance into jail, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and possession of drug paraphernalia. She is being held in lieu of $5,000 bail.
