Two were arrested early Monday for suspicion of felony burglary, drug possession and other offenses, according to a Carson City sheriff’s office booking report.
Ryan Mitchell Pritchett, 28, of Martinez, Calif., and Vanessa Nicole Martinez, 26, of Oakley, Calif., were taken into custody at 12:55 a.m. near the intersection of Corbett and North Carson Street.
Both face burglary and drug possession charges as well as possession of burglary tools, a gross misdemeanor offense and possession of drug paraphernalia. Martinez was also arrested for a felony outside agency warrant. Pritchett was also arrested for driving without a valid license.
According to the booking report, deputies made a traffic stop on a vehicle suspected in a burglary, fraud and property damage case from Sunday.
During the traffic stop, the deputy asked the passenger, Martinez, for identification. The woman stated she didn’t have an ID card but provided here name, date of birth and social security number. Dispatch ran the information, which came back with an outstanding extraditable felony warrant with a $50,000 bail for failure to appear on two counts of burglary in San Mateo County, Calif. The officer instructed the woman to step out of the vehicle where she was taken into custody for the felony warrant.
Officers asked if she wanted her personal items still in the vehicle to go with her. She stated she wanted her purse and phone. Deputies searched the personal belongings and located multi-colored plastic tubes, recognized as “tooter” straws (commonly used for inhaling narcotics) as well as folded burnt tin foil, also associated with narcotic use.
Deputies conducted a search of the vehicle for evidence in the residential burglary from the prior day. Several items located in the back of the vehicle were positively identified as being stolen from the victim, the arrest report states.
