The wife of a Santa Rosa Junior College police officer suspected of stealing parking fee money was arrested today for possession of stolen property and being an accessory, a Santa Rosa Police Department sergeant said. Karen Holzworth, 49, of Santa Rosa, was booked in the Sonoma County jail under $45,000 bail. She posted bail and was released, Sgt. Mike Lazzarini said. Her husband Jeffrey Holzworth, 51, was arrested in November for grand theft and embezzlement of parking fee money at the college. Police said several thousand dollars were found at various locations.
The Sonoma County District Attorney’s Office has not yet filed charges against Jeffrey Holzworth. He is scheduled to appear in Sonoma County Superior Court Wednesday. Holzworth worked as a Santa Rosa Junior College police officer for 28 years. Deputy District Attorney Amy Ariyoshi said Holzworth was responsible for maintaining the parking meters that accept one- and five-dollar bills. The investigation began after Santa Rosa Junior College Police Department Chief Matt McCaffrey informed Santa Rosa police an employee notified him of the alleged embezzlement, Santa Rosa police Sgt. Lance Badger said.
