On March 16, 2005, Santa Clara County Regional Auto Theft Task Force (RATTF) Detectives arrested Christopher James Palmer, 31 years old, and his girlfriend, 19-year old Katrina Hennes, at 650 Nuttman St.; a commercial district in the City of Santa Clara.
Detectives received an anonymous tip regarding stolen property. The detectives posed as buyers, which resulted in the recovery of stolen property from a Los Altos theft in January 2005 that involved the loss of two prototype engines.
RAATF raided the operation and booked both suspects into the Main Jail, without incident, on the following charges: possession of stolen property, possession of a controlled substance, possession for sales of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), cultivation of marijuana and a convicted felon in possession of firearms.
The case is still under investigation as additional stolen property is still outstanding in the Los Altos case. Additional property was recovered that is yet to be identified.
Anyone with any information regarding this investigation is asked to call the lead RATTF Investigator, Detective Joseph Mamone at (408) 808-4555.
