Police arrested two people last week after officers found them inside a stolen car in the parking lot of a San Bruno mall.
At 6 p.m., Tuesday, March 14, officers located a stolen vehicle in the parking lot of the Shops at Tanforan shopping center’s parking lot, located at 1150 El Camino Real, according to police.
Officers learned the vehicle had been reported stolen earlier that day out of San Francisco.
Inside the car, officers found a man and woman. They were identified as San Francisco residents Amy Brawner, 35, and Arthur Durtsche, 47, police said.
After searching the vehicle, officers found property that had been stolen in vehicle burglaries, as well as pepper spray, controlled substances and paraphernalia.
Brawner initially gave officers a false name, but they were able to learn her true identity and also learned she had a warrant for her arrest in connection with a burglary, police said.
Officers arrested Brawner on suspicion of possession of stolen property, identity theft and possession of a controlled substance, as well as the outstanding warrant.
Durtsche was arrested on suspicion of possession of stolen property, possession of pepper spray by a felon and possession of a controlled substance, police said.
The pair was booked into the Maguire Correctional Facility in Redwood City.
