REDDING, Calif. - A man and a woman were arrested Wednesday for alleged auto burglary and being in possession of drugs after a City of Redding employee noticed them acting suspiciously in a parking garage.


According to the Redding Police Department, the employee called officers saying that a man and woman, later identified as Jeremy Dutcher, 40, of Redding and Harley Schwartzengraber, 19, of Anderson, were looking into cars parked near Shasta College.


An officer then arrived shortly after 8:30 a.m. to look for the suspects, who were apparently working together, the city employee saying that Schwartzengraber was playing loud music on a portable speaker while Dutcher was checking cars.


The two suspects then ran away down an alley northbound once they were noticed by the city employee.


The duo was caught a short time later at the alley behind Hinkle’s Market, and found with a purse belonging to a 20-year-old Redding woman who had her side window broken, officials say.


Both suspects then apparently downplayed their role into the case and officers found heroin and drug paraphernalia, officials say.


The two then admitted to the officer that they were addicts of heroin, officials say.


They were both taken into the Shasta County Jail on charges of auto burglary, conspiracy to commit burglary, possession of heroin, drug paraphernalia and burglary tools.
