A Sonoma woman who was reportedly spray painting a stolen bicycle when deputies spotted her under the Verano Avenue Bridge was arrested.
At around 3 p.m. on March 23, deputies were on foot patrol along Sonoma Creek and came upon a gathering of some of Sonoma’s frequent fliers, so named because of their frequent contact with law enforcement. The deputies saw Kera Anderson, 24, spray painting the bicycle that was valued at more than $1,000. Anderson told the deputies she found the bicycle.
One of the deputies discovered the bike had been reported as stolen, so Anderson was arrested on charges of felony possession of stolen property and possession of a controlled substance and was transported to jail.
