Auto theft suspect arrested
Submitted By Sgt. T. Young, Milpitas PD
On October 14, 2012 at 9:52 p.m., Milpitas police located a stolen 1995 Mazda in the parking lot of Extended Stay of America (1000 Hillview Court). Later, a 2009 Honda Accord entered the parking lot and parked next to the stolen vehicle. A female, who was later identified as Monique Williams of San Jose, exited the Honda and entered the stolen Mazda. Milpitas police officers contacted Williams and took her into custody without incident. Officers determined the Honda Williams arrived in was also stolen. Officers recovered multiple pieces of mail, credit cards and debit cards, which are believed to be stolen, during a search of both of the vehicles.
Williams was booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail on two counts of possession of a stolen vehicle. Owners of the suspected stolen property have not yet been notified and additional charges are expected.
Anyone with any information regarding any suspicious or criminal activity involving Williams is encouraged to call the Milpitas Police Department.
