Pleasant Hill police arrested two people stopped while riding in a stolen car on Contra Costa Boulevard Sunday morning.
Officers stopped an Acura sedan and detained the two occupants after a license plate reader alerted police that the plates had been reported stolen. Officers also determined that the car had recently been reported stolen.
Police said Daniel Gillaspy, 36, who was driving at the time, and passenger Melissa Torres, 31 were arrested at the scene.
Gillaspy is on active PRCS (post released community supervision) for stolen vehicle charges. He was arrested for driving a stolen vehicle, possession of burglary tools and felony probation violation charges and was booked into county jail. Torres was arrested for narcotic charges and possession of stolen property. She was later released.
