Check out Sacramento’s Most Wanted suspects for the week of Sept. 10
Citrus Heights police arrested a Placer County woman Sunday for allegedly stealing a car during a home burglary and then attempting to steal a bag full of clothes at a local department store, police said.
Kristina Ann Dement, 49, was booked into the Sacramento County Jail on suspicion of burglary, purchase or receipt of a stolen vehicle and receiving stolen property, according to jail records. She is being held in lieu of $1 million bond.
At 4 p.m. Sunday, a employee at a department store in the 6100 block of San Juan Avenue called police to report Dement and a man were allegedly trying to steal clothes and socks from the store, said Lt. David Gutierrez, spokesman for the Citrus Heights police. The employee told officers that they’d seen the suspects get out of a gray Toyota Camry that was still parked outside the store.
When officers arrived, they found a man idling in a Camry outside. The car’s license plate showed it had been reported stolen in a home burglary on Saxton Circle a week before, Gutierrez said. The man was allegedly waiting for Dement and her companion to come out of the store.
The two men were detained and Dement was arrested, Gutierrez said.
Dement had previously served time in county jail for a 2015 burglary conviction, Placer County Superior court records show. She was also wanted in connection to a parole violation.
