Four women were arrested Tuesday on suspicion of burglarizing an acquaintance's Porter Creek Road home, Sonoma County sheriff's officials said.
A woman called 911 at about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday and said she saw friends running out of her house on Porter Creek Road east of Franz Valley Road with her belongings, leaving in two cars, Lt. Glenn Lawrence said.
The resident told authorities that all of her belongings were taken, including tools, paintings, shoes, a purse and a computer, Lawrence said.
A deputy followed the cars, which fled in different directions near Highway 101 and Hopper Avenue, Lt. Steve Brown said.
One car headed south, leading the deputy on a two-mile pursuit that ended when she crashed on Kingwood Street and Dutton Avenue in Santa Rosa, Brown said.
Deputies found several items taken from the home in the car and arrested the driver, Sara Uribe, 24, of Healdsburg and passenger Naustachia Green, 28, of Forestville on suspicion of possessing stolen property and violating probation, sheriff's records show.
Uribe also was arrested on suspicion of burglary, possessing burglary tools and a controlled substance, driving with a suspended license and leading officers on a pursuit, records show.
Deputies tracked the second car to the driveway at a home on William Circle in Cloverdale. Inside, they found Marina Venza, 21, and Holly Bishop, 23, who are both transient, with other property taken from the home, including a computer, Brown said.
They found additional stolen items from the car, he said.
