Sleeping Burglar Caught Red Handed With Loot From Home
Sonora, CA – A Jamestown woman caught sleeping inside a Sonora home was also found to have a loot bag containing more than just stolen items.
A startled homeowner in the 700 block of Shaws Flat Road recently reported finding an unknown female napping in their basement. Arriving Sonora Police officers woke the subject, 38-year-old Roxann Tracy. A records check showed she had two outstanding warrants. One related to felony burglary charges, and another misdemeanor bench warrant related to drugs, which allowed her to be searched.
A pat-down of Tracy revealed several items not belonging to her, including some identified by the homeowner as belonging to them. The officer also discovered a satchel nearby containing what appeared to be methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
Tracy was arrested for burglary, possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia along with both of her warrants. Her bail was set at $50,000.
SPD relayed that they are not sure how Tracy allegedly broke into the house, as there were no visible signs of a break-in.
