Murrieta police on Sunday, Oct. 29, arrested two people who they say were caught alongside numerous pieces of stolen musical equipment.

Pedro Sanchez, 41, and Emily Renee Craven, 23, both of Hemet were arrested on suspicion of possessing stolen property and possessing burglary tools, among other counts.

Sanchez was booked into the Cois M. Byrd Detention Center and remained there Wednesday with no bail set.

Craven was booked into the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning with bail set at $10,000 and was released Oct. 31.

Authorities say they went to the 24000 block of Village Walk Place after receiving a report of a suspicious person and learned that Sanchez was on post community release supervision for narcotics-related offenses and that Craven had prior narcotics-related arrests as well.

Police searched the inside of Sanchez and Craven’s vehicle and found the numerous pieces of equipment. They checked the serial numbers on the equipment and found that it had been reported stolen out of Escondido, according to officials. Craven and Sanchez were then taken into custody.
