Last Thursday Winters Police Department officers arrested two Dixon residents in connection to a stolen vehicle and possession of controlled substance.

Winters Police Chief John P. Miller said on Sept. 17 WPD officer Victor Barajas was in the area of East Baker Street and Railroad Avenue when he observed a 2020 Chevrolet Silverado pickup making a series of sudden turns.

Upon completing a record check on the Silverados license plate, the results showed the plate number did not match the plate attached to the present vehicle.

Barajas stopped the vehicle on the tenth block of Edwards Street. A further investigation during the stop showed the Silverado had been reported stolen from the City of Oakley in Contra Costa County.

A search of the vehicle after the arrest of its occupants located 17.62 net grams of methamphetamine in addition to drug paraphernalia.

The driver was identified as Tonya Trudeau (age 50), of Dixon. Trudeau was arrested for vehicle theft, possession of controlled substance, and possession of controlled substance paraphernalia.

The passenger, identified as William Heathcote III (age 57) of Dixon, was arrested for vehicle theft.

Trudeau and Heathcote III were transported to the Yolo County Jail for incarceration.

According to Miller, sergeant Jose Hermosillo assisted in the arrest.
