CHICO, Calif. - A man and woman from Paradise are wanted in Chico for allegedly breaking into a woman’s car and then stealing numerous credit cards inside.
According to Chico police, officers got a call on May 4 at 10 a.m. about a car that was broken into at 300 Wildwood Dr., Wildwood Park.
The victim said she was out for a morning walk and when she returned 30 minutes later to her locked car – the driver’s side window was smashed -- and her purse, filled with credit cards and IDs, were taken.
Twenty minutes later the victim noticed the credit cards were being used a short distance away on East Avenue, that’s where officers responded and obtained video showing the suspects.
An investigation revealed that Harley Colvard, 24, and Derek Barnett, 28, were the suspects and that Colvard was last seen driving a maroon 2000 Ford Expedition, said Chico police.
Officers tracked the California license plate of the car as 5VUJ143, registered in Paradise.
Authorities later went to the address that was registered in the license plate, but they did not find either Colvard or Barnett at the residence.
Chico police were able to recover the stolen purse, which was valued at $650, at the Paradise home.
Barnett is currently wanted for violation of his Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS), his original offense was for being in possession of a firearm as a convicted felon, said Chico police.
Colvard is believed to be responsible for other vehicle burglaries around the Chico area, and there’s also a warrant out for her arrest.
