Surveillance System Spots Stolen Car, Two Suspects Nabbed

DANVILLE — Police officers arrested two suspects who were returning to a stolen car at a parking lot off Railroad Avenue on Monday afternoon — tracked by the town’s surveillance system.

An automated license plate reader camera alerted police that a stolen Nissan Sentra was parked downtown at 1:10 p.m. on January 23. Police responded and waited nearby to make an arrest.

When a man and woman returned to the stolen car, the man fled as officers approached, but he was arrested after a brief foot chase. His companion was immediately arrested as she stood by the car.

Suspect John Fouhey, 35, of Martinez, was first transported to San Ramon Regional Medical Center for medical treatment, before he was booked at Martinez Detention Facility, where he remains in custody without bail authorization.

Fouhey was charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of stolen property, possession of another person’s identification information, resisting arrest, and probation violation.

The other suspect, 20-year-old Courtney Hall of Pleasant Hill, was charged with possession of stolen property, possession of another person’s identification information, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and probation violation. She’s being held at the Martinez Detention Facility for $35,000 bail.
