On Sunday around 12:20 AM, two Pueblo Police Department volunteers came upon a vehicle parked in a handicapped parking spot, without permit, at the Walgreens on Bonforte. Upon writing a citation and running the license plate, the vehicle was found to have been reported stolen since January 14th.
Officers arrived to assist and quickly took 33 year old Sarah Chong into custody. The arrest involved the recovery of the stolen vehicle, checks involved with an identity theft case and narcotics, possibly for distribution.
The Pueblo Police Department would like to commend volunteers Phil Romero and Mike Cira for their assistance and dedication to the citizens of Pueblo by donating their time and efforts in helping recover the stolen items and by keeping dangerous drugs from hitting the streets.
Good Job Guys!
