A car alarm awoke a sleeping resident early Wednesday morning and led to the capture of two thieves, according to the Paso Robles Police Department.

Around 3:40 a.m., a resident in the 900 block of St. Ann Drive went outside to see why the car alarm went off. The citizen saw a vehicle leaving the area and called police.

The resident provided a description of the vehicle, as well as a partial license plate number. Officers responded, found the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop.

When the vehicle pulled over, a passenger fled the car. Police took the driver into custody and patrol units located the fleeing passenger. Both suspects were on probation at the time.

Officers identified the driver as Olivia Cook, 29, from Paso Robles. She was charged with petty theft, possession of drug paraphernalia and a probation violation.Olivia Cook

Officers arrested Roberts and charged him with petty theft, possession of a controlled substance, possession of a narcotic, being under the influence of a controlled substance, resisting arrest and a probation violation.

Bringing back speedy enforcement of the death penalty and deporting criminal-illegal aliens would free up plenty of jail space for the likes of these two.

Shows the worth of the Parole system.

Clyde had ammunition but no gun; hmmm. Olivia grabbed Clyde’s gun and ran off to ditch it. Probably tossed it nearby; few meth-heads can run far. The PR police better go back and search for that gun.

If only her name was Bonnie, we would have made national headlines once again.

This is the reason why Prop 47 is an utter failure and a literal “get out of jail free” card. Criminals like this steal less than 950 worth of other people’s things and they get let go with a fine. They can even be in possession of drugs, drug paraphernalia and burglary tools for the gazillionth time and STILL be let go without jail time. It’s a vicious cycle that never ends! Sadly, the people who are affected the most are the victims of these career criminals/drug addicts.

Just google the man’s name. He has a LOOONG criminal history of theft and illicit drug use, child endangerment for smoking meth in a room a 9 year old etc. etc.. Despicable.

Our prisons and jails are crammed full. The State is under Federal court order to reduce over crowding in CA prisons. There are no empty beds where this class of criminal can go. It would be cheaper to just give the meth abusers all the meth they want. It would cost about 50 cents a day and they would OD and be gone in short order.

sounds like my solution to gang violence. Invite all gangs to USCs coliseum and have them battle to the death for gang supremacy. Sell tickets and pay per view.

The winners get arrested after the show is over.

End of gang problem.

Except nobody dies from Meth overdoses. Tweakers live on forever terrorizing communities by stealing, robbing and burglarizing. Heroin is what people OD on.

Pair of Adam Hill supporters.

Clyde has been a very busy boy the past few years, esp. last August. Wonder why they let him out?

No room at the grey bar motel.

What a lovely couple. Hopefully they don’t produce any offspring.

By looking at her picture, I think she might not like men.

Give her some meth and she’ll follow you anywhere.

maybe she just doesn’t like being arrested, although I bet she is getting accustomed to it.
