A Novato woman was arrested Thursday after she was stopped in a car reported stolen in the San Pablo, police said.
Santa Monica Magana, 25, was booked into Marin County Jail on suspicion of vehicle theft, possession of burglary tools and other violations. Her bail was set at $25,000.
The traffic stop occurred at about 6 a.m., when the California Highway Patrol saw a car with no license plates heading west on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge. Police pulled the car over at the San Quentin exit.
The driver, identified as Magana, was unable to provide any registration papers for the car, said CHP Officer Patrick Roth. Police checked the vehicle identification number on the car, a 1993 Plymouth Voyager, and learned it had been reported stolen from San Pablo.
Magana denied knowing it was stolen, but she had no ignition key, Roth said. Police also found suspected burglary tools in Magana's possession and in the car.
