BAKERSFIELD — Police nabbed several thieves in Bakersfield over the weekend.
Christopher Booker, 29, was booked into the Kern County Jail on several counts of stolen property, possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of burglary tools and being a convicted felon in possession of ammunition. 25-year-old Shauni Calligy and 23-year-old Ramona Martinez were booked for possession of stolen property.
According to the Kern County Sheriff’s Office, Booker and Calligy were arrested on Thursday, October 15, after deputies serving a search warrant at a home in the 500 block of Francis Street in Bakersfield and locating several items of stolen property, connected to five separate residential burglaries and thefts in the area, inside the home’s garage.
Among the items recovered was a Harley Davidson motorcycle reported stolen to the Bakersfield Police Department.
Christopher Booker had been arrested previously, on September 28th for possession of controlled substances, and on May 31st for DUI. On November 29, 2013, records show he was charged with domestic violence – inflicting corporal injury on a spouse or co-habitant, along with assault with a deadly weapon, and in September that year he was charged with battery on a spouse, co-habitant or former spouse.
A day before capturing Booker and Calligy, detectives had arranged to meet Ramona Martinez to purchase a stolen acoustic guitar she was attempting to sell on Craigslist. The guitar was reported stolen back in 2014. As a result she was taken into custody, also in Thursday the 15th, and the guitar was returned to the owner. (She was not connected to Booker and Calligy.)
