SANTA ROSA - Not once, but twice, a 21-year-old man was caught breaking into local dealerships. The first night, police found the man in the office with 10 key fobs in hand, and shattered glass from the sliding door. Due to bail changes related to the pandemic, he was released on a citation.

The very next night, the same man shattered a sliding glass door at a different dealership, half a mile from the dealership he broke into the previous night. This time, he wasn’t so lucky. His bail was enhanced by the judge, to $160,000. He was booked into the Sonoma County Jail.
