DANVILLE – A pair of Vallejo residents are facing charges in connection with a series of package thefts in Danville.
According to Danville Police Chief Steve Simpkins, a number of thefts were reported in the month of December. During that time, r
Residents provided police with descriptions and video from home security systems of a dark-colored Toyota Tundra involved in the thefts.
Just before midnight on Tuesday, January 3, 2017, a patrol officer noticed a vehicle fitting that description near the intersection of Camino Ramon and Fostoria Way.
The officer made contact with a man and woman in the car and conducted an investigation.
A search of the vehicle turned up items related to package thefts in Danville. The suspects, James Garrett (51) and Jamie Douglas (36), both from Vallejo, were taken into custody.
Both have been charged with identity theft, conspiracy, false personation, possession of stolen property, petty theft, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Both were transported to the Martinez Detention Facility.
Police say a subsequent search of their residence in Vallejo led to the further discovery of evidence related to package thefts in Danville.
Chief Simpkins stated he was very happy with the outcome and with the strong ongoing relationship between police and the community that led to the arrest.
“We’re very lucky to have a community that watches out for each other, and works with us to help get criminals off the streets,” he said, “and when partnered with our officers, it’s a tough combination for the bad guys.”
