Concord Pair Arrested for Package Thefts

UPDATE: The suspect identified as Alejandra Rojas has been determined to have been using a false ID.  She is identified as Elsy Zapian-Vasquez, 27 of Concord.  Additional charges of a no-bail warrant and providing false identification to police have been added. 

On December 9, 2019, at 2:48 p.m., Danville Officers received a call from a resident on the 200 block of Promenade Lane regarding a subject stealing packages from the resident’s front porch. The resident was not at home, and was witnessing the theft via their doorbell camera.

The resident provided the police with a description of thief, the thief’s vehicle and the direction of travel once the theft had taken place. Responding officers were able to locate the suspect vehicle, the thief, the getaway driver, and stolen packages. Officers have identified some of the packages as having been stolen from Danville and Walnut Creek.

Arrested were:

Alejandra Rojas, 25 Concord, was arrested for petty theft, conspiracy, possession of dangerous drugs, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Omar Panduro, 34, Concord, was arrested for grand theft, conspiracy, and three violations of his felony probation.

Both were booked at the Martinez Detention Facility.

Chief Allan Shields would like to credit the resident reporting the crime for acting quickly and providing detailed information to the police department. Officers were able to act quickly on the information provided, arrest the thieves and return stolen property to several residents in the San Ramon Valley. Chief Shields said this is a great example of how having doorbell cameras, and taking other safety precautions can help prevent crimes, or help catch the criminals after the fact.

This is yet another instance showing how the partnership between the police and the community helps keep the Town of Danville safe.
