A transient woman was arrested Friday on suspicion of stealing more than $45,000 of property from two burglarized residences in Sonoma, according to police. Sonoma police arrested Harmony Love Bolt, 42, who lives in the Boyes Hot Springs area, in connection with the burglaries. An alert member of the Trinity Episcopal Church on East Spain Street took a photo of a suspicion woman on church property Thursday morning.
Church staff noticed a restroom had been broken into and discovered a large amount of miscellaneous used clothing, some with price tags attached, inside the restroom. Church staff also found an abandoned bicycle, a basket with wheels and empty storage bins that did not belong to the church, Sackett said. Police discovered some of the property that was discarded at the church, including antique, vintage and high-end clothing, shoes and jewelry, had been stolen from a garage at a residence in the 200 block of East Spain Street, according to Sackett.
Police recognized Bolt as the woman in the photo, and discovered the fur coat she was wearing in the photo had been stolen from the burglary victim’s garage, Sackett said. Police arrested Bolt Friday morning in her trailer parked on Sierra Drive in Boyes Hot Springs, Sackett said. The trailer was stocked with items worth $45,000 that were stolen during the garage burglary on East Spain Street, Sackett said.
Police also found furniture and household goods worth $400 in the trailer that were taken during a separate residential burglary in the 200 block of East Napa Street, Sackett said. All the property was returned to the owners. Bolt was booked into the Sonoma County Jail under $51,000 bail for burglary, possession of stolen property and a probation violation, according to Sackett.
