Sentinel staff report–
Davis Police on Friday announced the arrest of Citrus Heights residents Thomas and Michelle Witten after an investigation into a storage unit break-in led detectives to their home.
The suspects, age 45 and 43, have been charged with burglary/conspiracy and were booked at the Yolo County Jail, Davis Police said in a Nov. 17 statement on social media. The pair are accused of stealing more than $3,600 in personal items and holiday decor from a storage unit on the 300 block of Pole Line Road, in Davis.
The Davis Enterprise reported the burglary occurred last month, with detectives then tracing the property back to a home in Citrus Heights where a search warrant was served on Nov. 7. The family who had their items stolen posted surveillance video showing a closeup of the suspects’ faces on a social media crime watch page, CBS Sacramento reported.
The news station said police called the theft recovery a “Christmas miracle,” and quoted a police lieutenant saying: “I’d be lying if [if I said] some of the detectives weren’t singing Christmas carols back in the office when they were going through a lot of this property.”
