A woman was arrested Tuesday evening, Sept. 15, after she was spotted by the owner of the stolen car she was driving on westbound Whitmore Avenue at Fifth Street.
The victim, who lost the black Honda Civic stolen in the Ceres Walmart parking lot the day before, called police at 5:31 p.m. to report the sighting. Police responded and found the Honda and the driver at the Vineyard gas station on Whitmore Avenue west of Morgan Road. Police arrested Breanne Tice, 24, of Modesto, on charges of auto theft and possession of stolen property.
Tice had been arrested on Sept. 1 with three others who were allegedly stealing mail from mailboxes in the 1600 block of Nadine Avenue.
