By: CityFella,

Last Thursday,Channel 40 anchor Sabrina Rodriguez turned herself in to Folsom Police after a warrant was issued. For grand theft, burglary and conspiracy charges.

According to documents, on March 24,2013. Rodriguez aided  an accomplice in the theft of 10 wallets valued at $2500 from a Coach outlet store in Folsom.

Employees at the Coach store recognized Rodriguez as an anchor at a local television station, police said.

Her attorney maintains, she is 100% innocent.   She is out on 10,000 bond and has taken voluntary leave of absence from the station.

“Rodriguez is then observed picking up, and shaking a wallet at Nicholas Gray.”

“As Rodriguez, turned away, Gray took the wallets off of the stand and placed them in his bag

“Gray… placed them in a “Faraday bag” designed to defeat store security sensors…”

“It appears Rodriguez is selecting wallets and helping conceal the actions of Gray…”

Who is Nicholas Gray?

Last May, a fire broke out at the South Sacramento home she shared with fiance, Nicholas Gray.

A fire department spokesman, said the couple were extremely lucky to get out.  The couple believed the stove exploded. One firefighter,was injured at the scene.

A few months later,Nicholas Gray was arrested and booked into Sacramento County Jail on charges of arson(in connection with the May 6 fire) battery, manufacturing meth and possession of marijuana or hashish for sale. His bail was set at $600,000.

Gray is accused of trying to make a concentrated form of marijuana called honey oil, when butane (which is used in the process of making honey oil) ignited, causing an explosion that burned down the home, according to court documents.

Those Pesky Text Messages (You delete them but they never die)

In February 2013, Gray texted Rodriguez: “I got 8 $350 cashmere sweaters plus skirt I got rent.”

On March 13, 2013, Gray again texted Rodriguez: “Outta Vacaville. So easy. BCBG re arranged the store. So I got 100 dlr purses.”

After several texts about logistics concerning how he’ll get home, Rodriguez replies: “Awesome. I love when a plan comes together.”

March 24, 2013, a witness reported seeing Gray walk out of the Coach Outlet in Folsom with stolen wallets. Rodriguez admitted to police to being in the store with Gray, but claimed to know nothing.

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
