Danville police arrested a Concord man and Martinez woman on suspicion of possessing a stolen car and committing other crimes Tuesday morning, according to a department spokesman.
Officers assigned to crime suppression patrol spotted the pair in a parking lot in the 3100 block of Fostoria Way in Danville just after 11:45 a.m., according to Lt. Allan Shields.
The officers spoke with the pair and took Raymond Pattillo, 34, into custody for having an outstanding warrant for violating terms of his post-release community supervision, Shields said.
They also allegedly found drug paraphernalia on the woman, 22-year-old Holly Webster, and detained her on suspicion of possessing the paraphernalia and probation violation.
Subsequent investigation revealed the vehicle Pattillo and Webster were associated with was stolen from the Pittsburg BART station and contained license plates taken from a different car, Shields said. The pair were later booked into the Martinez Detention Facility.
The lieutenant said he was pleased with the crime suppression patrol netting the two arrests.
"Getting the extra resources into the community allows us the opportunity to make contacts that can lead to arrests," Shields said. "This, along with the heightened awareness and care being exhibited in the community, will help bring the level of property crimes down in Danville."
