PLEASANTON, CA (KRON) — Two California women were arrested for mail theft and drug possession thanks to an alert citizen who witnessed the crime.

The citizen told police he confronted a female in his front yard who was carrying a large amount of mail. The female fled to a waiting vehicle as the citizen called 9-1-1 and provided the vehicle and suspect description.

Within a minute, Officer Rich Trovao located the vehicle leaving the residential area and conducted a traffic stop. Inside the vehicle, officers located stolen property, methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, and stolen mail and credit cards from victims in Pleasanton and San Joaquin County. Officers also followed a trail of mail on the route the vehicle took leaving the residential area, which was discarded by the suspects as they fled.

Both occupants, Tiffany Pigg, 30, and Alicia Davis, 38, were arrested and booked into Santa Rita Jail on charges of mail theft and drug possession.

The Pleasanton Police Department depends on the relationships they have with the community to stay alert and immediately call them if suspicious activity is observed.
