In a stolen vehicle with stolen plates, evasion results in arrest

On Saturday morning at 5:10 a.m., a Paso Robles resident located a Hispanic male adult inside his garage. The male later identified as arrestee Ricardo Magana, had opened the garage door and was attempting to get into the victim’s vehicle.

During the confrontation, Magana ran back to a black Ford Edge that was waiting for him to the front of the residence. The victim stated Magana got into the passenger seat and noticed a Hispanic female, later identified as arrestee Christina Rogers, in the driver’s seat.

A juvenile was also reported as seen in the backseat of the vehicle.

The black Ford Edge fled the area at a high rate of speed evading PRPD Officers. A short pursuit ensued. The suspects parked the vehicle in the driveway to a residence on Laura Way and fled the area.


The black Ford Edge was recovered and reported stolen out of Shafter, CA. The vehicle was cold plated and had an unreported stolen license plate affixed to the rear bumper.

The license plate was stolen from another Ford Edge at a residence in Paso Robles who was later contacted.

Magana, Rogers, and the juvenile were all located in the area and arrested. They were later booked under the charges of burglary, possession of a stolen vehicle, and evading police into county jail and juvenile services.
