Sacramento police continue to make arrests using cameras that capture the license-plate numbers of passing vehicles.
Officers were patrolling near the 1300 block of Florin Road in South Sacramento about 12:45 p.m. Tuesday when they were notified by a Police Observation Device (POD) that a stolen vehicle was nearby.
Officers found the vehicle and arrested the driver, 39-year-old Ometra Jones.
PODs, which can alert officers to crime while they are occurring, were introduced in Sacramento in 2014.
