A resident reported around midnight Monday that two women stole a package that had been left on a porch. Police immediately began looking for the suspects in the area near Garden and Laurel lanes.
Police spotted the green Mitsubishi SUV that the resident had reported seeing the women get into. When police arrived, one woman was at the front door of a home claiming she needed to make a phone call.
Police were eventually forced to use pepper spray on one of the women and later found the other hiding in the area.
Police found many items in the vehicle the women were driving that police believe were stolen. The women were taken to the Contra Costa County jail in Martinez where they were booked.
