According to Redding police, on Memorial Day, Sazha Pena, 28, of Redding was pulled over during a traffic stop for a mechanical violation of the car, but officers learned that the car she was driving was stolen from a local business.

Pena admitted to taking the car and leaving another vehicle in its place, officers learned that she stole the first vehicle and later returned it, but ultimately stole another one after.

She was booked into the Shasta County Jail for nearly a week and a half until she was released from jail on Thursday.

On Friday, officers were sent to a home at Calgary Place regarding a house burglary, and the homeowner gave authorities a detailed description of the female suspect as well as her getaway car, a stolen vehicle.
