Two Santa Rosa men arrested on suspicion of stealing a dozen packages from homes

Two Santa Rosa men were arrested early Sunday morning on suspicion of stealing a dozen packages from in front of homes in Windsor and Santa Rosa.

At around 11:45 p.m. on Saturday night, a Windsor resident reported that the suspects were snatching deliveries while driving a red minivan in the southwest area of the town, Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office said.

As the holiday season approaches, residents should be on guard against package theft, said Misti Wood, a Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman.
