Sacramento County pair arrested in Woodland battery thefts

Two Sacramento County residents were arrested in Woodland, suspected of stealing vehicle batteries.

At 9:40 p.m. Tuesday, Woodland police officers were called to the Target Warehouse, 2050 E. Beamer St., regarding a report that two people had been seen in a restricted area taking batteries out of construction vehicles.

Officers arriving at the scene established a perimeter and immediately detained a woman identified as Ana Tomak, 18, of Rancho Cordova, according to a Police Department news release. A second suspect ran off into an adjacent thistle field.

A Woodland Police K-9 team joined officers in a search of the area and located a man leaving the field near County Road 102. The man was later identified as Ilya Sytay, 20, of Folsom.

Tomak was arrested on suspicion of grand theft and conspiracy. Sytay was arrested on suspicion of grand theft, conspiracy and possession of a designated controlled substance. Both were booked at the Yolo County Jail.

Police ask anyone with additional information regarding the incident or individuals involved to call the Police Department at (530) 661-7800 or (530) 666-2411. Callers can remain anonymous.
