Times-Herald staff report
Three people were arrested Saturday afternoon following an apparent mini crime spree that started at the El Cerrito BART station and ended in Vallejo, a Vallejo Police Department spokesman said Sunday.

Vallejo police stopped a green, 1996 Honda Accord that had yet to be reported stolen out of El Cerrito at about 4:50 p.m. in the 800 block of 5th Street, when the two male occupants fled on foot.

A female occupant later identified as Rose Phillips, 21, of San Pablo, surrendered at the scene, and was found to be in possession of a purse reported stolen earlier that day by people visiting Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, Lt. Lee Horton said.

"The people had parked on Sage Street and gone to (Six Flags Discovery Kingdom), and when they came back, they found the purse had been stolen," Horton said.

Meanwhile, police pursued the two male suspects, who had to be shot with a Taser before being arrested.

The driver, Juan Latorre, 30, of Richmond, was a parolee at large who had shaved keys, a tool allowing thieves to open and start certain kinds of cars, Horton said.

Latorre, Phillips and Luis Nieto, 40, of Richmond, who had been the right front passenger in the car, were booked into Solano County Jail on suspicion of conspiracy to commit burglary, possession of stolen property and vehicle theft, Horton said."
