Alert resident notices women casing cars

A 40-year-old woman helped foil potential burglaries on Morninghome Road in Danville last week, said police Sgt. Troy Craig.

Kelly Tulchinsky, 28, of Danville and Jeana Guevara, 18, of Martinez were looking into cars on Morninghome Road on Friday morning, Aug. 24, police said. They began to work separately but they carried receivers to inform each other if they saw cops, according to reports.

A 40-year-old woman living on Morninghome Road saw the suspicious activity and called the police at 11:45 a.m. Police arrived in the area and caught the two suspects.

Police found stolen property in Tulchinsky's car, a 1995 green Ford Thunderbird, including computer parts and a humidifier, which had been taken from Dublin, and a pipe for smoking drugs. The computer parts and the humidifier are worth around $500, Craig said.

Tulchinsky was arrested on charges of possession of stolen property and violation of probation for carrying a controlled substance. Guevara was arrested on charges of being under the influence of drugs, Craig said.

Police took them to Martinez Detention Facility.

Craig noted the resident's call helped the police immensely.

"This call resulted in two good arrests that could've resulted in several burglaries in broad daylight," he said. "We want more of these things to happen."
