A woman who allegedly took part in a Pacific Beach home invasion robbery, then made her getaway by stealing a police SUV that she drove into Mission Bay, was in custody Friday, along with her alleged accomplice, who was arrested at the scene of the initial crime.
The home invasion occurred around 9:10 p.m. Thursday at a residence in the 2100 block of Pacific Beach Drive, San Diego Police Officer Robert Heims said. The suspects walked into the home through an open door and demanded money from a resident, then took the woman’s property and fled outside.
Officers arrested 40-year-old James Graham outside the residence, but his alleged accomplice, 25-year-old Stephanie Nicole Majsterski, escaped in a stolen SDPD patrol SUV, Officer Tony Martinez said.
The circumstances that followed were not immediately clear, but Majsterski was arrested after driving the police vehicle into Mission Bay near Fiesta Island, Martinez said.
10News reported that after driving the SUV into the water, Majsterski tried flagging down a driver and hitching a ride.
Majsterski was booked into the Las Colinas Detention Center for women early Friday morning on suspicion of robbery, first-degree burglary, obstructing and resisting officers and vehicle theft. She was being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
Graham was booked into the San Diego Central Jail Friday morning and held in lieu of $100,000 bail on suspicion of robbery, first-degree burglary and obstructing an officer. Both are tentatively scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday.
