A woman accused of stealing five wallets from bridal rooms at two weddings in Petaluma has been arrested by Petaluma police, and a search of her Santa Rosa home was conducted Wednesday.
Georgiann Kennedy, 50, allegedly stole a wallet from a bridesmaid at St. Vincent de Paul Church in Petaluma Dec. 30, Petaluma police said. The second alleged theft occurred Jan. 6 at a wedding at Calvary Chapel.
Kennedy is alleged to have used credit cards from the stolen wallets to make more than $1,100 in purchases at stores in Petaluma and Santa Rosa, police said.
She was caught on video at a SMART station buying a train ticket on a victim’s credit card, police said. Kennedy dyed her hair from red to black after her picture was distributed online.
A Petaluma police officer arrested Kennedy Jan. 18 on suspicion of burglary in Santa Rosa. Police served a search warrant Wednesday at her home where officers found clothing linking her to the thefts, according to authorities.
Kennedy was released from jail on bond.
