Yucaipa woman arrested for vehicle burglary, possession of stolen mail and forgery
Earlier this week, Yucaipa detectives located and arrested a 38-year-old Yucaipa woman in Banning for violation of probation, burglary, and identity theft/forgery. Sarah Perez-Snowball is suspected in the May 16 vehicle burglary that occurred in a Yucaipa parking lot at 31467 Avenue E. Perez-Snowball is suspected of shattering the victim’s vehicle window and stealing a purse, credit cards, and other items.
Security camera photos allowed deputies to identify the suspect’s vehicle and it was later found in the vicinity of Kelly Lane in Yucaipa. Perez-Snowball was identified as the suspect and a probationer. A probation search of Perez-Snowball’s home found the property stolen from the victim’s vehicle.
Also found during the search were numerous checks previously stolen from a mailbox in front of the Yucaipa Post Office. Most of the victims of the stolen checks have been notified but detectives are still investigating the case. Because law enforcement officers believe there may be additional victims they are calling upon the public to assist in their investigation. They have released a booking photo of Perez-Snowball and the suspect’s vehicle to aid the public in identifying whether they may have information pertinent to the case and the investigation. In the interim, Perez-Snowball is being held without bail at the Central Detention Center.
