Arrest made
in rash of
rural thefts

Staff writer
In early morning hours, prior to daybreak on Wednesday, Jan. 7, a rural Winters resident heard a huge “ka-thump” from the direction of her kitchen. Her dogs were barking with “such an aggressive bark that I have never heard before.” She got up, groggily, went into the kitchen, looked out the window and saw a “black hoodie shining a flashlight at me.” He ran when he saw her. She called 911.
“The dispatcher was very good. She kept me on the line until two deputies got here,” she says. “The deputy said to me, ‘You’re the fifth person this morning,’” said the resident, who asked not to be identified.
Among other crimes on Jan. 7 was an attempted break-in by smashing a window of a residence southwest of Woodland. That home was previously completely vandalized while the owner was out of town over the Christmas holidays. At another site northeast of Winters, outbuildings and vehicles were totally trashed while the residents were
sleeping. . . .
