A 21-year-old Lincoln woman was arrested in connection with an unsolved Rocklin crime spree after she walked into the Placer County jail to visit an inmate last Thursday.

"They took her name and date of birth and ran her through the system and located the warrant," Rocklin Police Lt. Scott Horrillo said.

Horrillo told FOX40 police officers worked diligently to connect Bianca Faviola Colin Garcia to the crime spree that began with a home burglary in Rocklin.

On July 19, a homeowner on the 6600 block of Miravista Drive in Rocklin reported interrupting a home burglary in progress. The homeowner took cell phone video of a man and a woman slowly driving away from the home in a lifted black Ford F250.

That owner of the truck reported it stolen after seeing the video on a Facebook post.

On July 20, a California Highway Patrol officer attempted to pull the truck over in Auburn, but the driver sped off, crashing at an intersection and fleeing on foot.

Rocklin Police then pulled fingerprints from the truck, and issued a $100,000 warrant for Garcia's arrest.

"She probably didn't know she had a warrant out," Horrillo said.

The Placer County Sheriff's Department said Garcia ran from the law for a third time Thursday, July 30, after coming to the jail to visit an inmate. A deputy caught her in the parking lot.

Rocklin Police say Garcia's car contained heroin, meth, morphine pills, stolen IDs, stolen mail, a loaded gun and burglary tools. She now faces a host of felonies.

Rocklin Police are still working to identify the male involved in the home burglary.
