Suspects arrested for possession of stolen property
Submitted By Lt Steven Petrakovitz, Milpitas PD
On Monday, August 29, 2011, at approximately 8:05 a.m., a resident of Summerwind Drive noticed a suspicious vehicle driving through the neighborhood and phoned 9-1-1 to report the information to the Milpitas Police. The witness said she saw the vehicle in the area on another occasion and did not recognize the occupants as living in the area. The area was checked but the car was gone when officers arrived. Approximately 10 minutes later, officers located the car traveling on N. Milpitas Blvd near Dixon Landing road.
Officers stopped the car and determined that the driver, Darrell Sean Bewley, was a parolee from Newcastle and the female passenger, Katherine Celeste Marrell, had an outstanding felony warrant from Placer County. When officers searched the vehicle they discovered items stolen from a recent auto burglary in Dublin.
Bewley was arrested for being a felon in possession of Mace and stolen property. Marrell was arrested for the warrant. Both people were booked into Santa Clara County Main Jail.
These individuals probably would not have been caught were it not for the alertness of a resident. We encourage all residents to contact the Police Department if they see suspicious activity. If residents are in doubt whether activity is suspicious, we encourage a phone call to the Milpitas Police Department so we may evaluate the circumstances.
Anyone with any information regarding this investigation or other similar incidents is encouraged to call the Milpitas Police Department at (408) 586-2400. Information can be given anonymously by calling the Milpitas Police Department Crime Tip Hotline at (408) 586-2500, or via the Milpitas Police Department website at: http://w ww.ci .milpi tas.ca.gov/govemment/police/cri me tip.asp
