Police arrest five on suspected theft charges

Petaluma police arrested four men on suspicion of a variety of theft charges Monday in the wake of a spike in property crimes in the city, authorities said.

Among those arrested Monday:

Michael Fowler, 21, of Petaluma is suspected of jumping off the roof of a Bodega Avenue home and trying to steal a resident's bike, Lt. Tim Lyons said.

Robert Davis, 53, of Petaluma is suspected of locking himself in an Orinda Avenue house and trying to flee out the back when officers arrived to investigate a felony warrant for theft, Lyons said.

Police suspect Daniel Lemos, 20, of Petaluma tried to steal a car on the 100-block of Second Street, but was interrupted by the owner, Lyons said. Officers tracked him to Putnam Plaza downtown and arrested him, he said.
