On November 18, 2018 at approximately 3:38 pm, Shascom received a call from Kathryn Foster, 57 years of Redding. Foster said she was following her white 1997 Honda Accord south on Highway 273 near Breslauer Lane, which she reported stolen on November 9, 2018. Foster continued to follow her vehicle, while updating Shascom with her location. Foster lost sight of her vehicle in the area of Highway 273 and Girvan Rd.
Officers with the Redding Police Department arrived and began checking the area where the vehicle was last seen. Officers located the stolen vehicle parked in the Win River Casino parking lot. Officers contacted Roy Croft, 41 years of Anderson, in the driver’s seat of the vehicle. Croft was cooperative and detained at the scene.
During a search of the vehicle, an aluminum baseball bat was located near the driver’s seat, along with a box of ammunition that didn’t belong to Foster. Additionally, Croft was also in possession of shaved keys, and a controlled substance. Croft is a convicted felon, and is prohibited from possessing ammunition.
Croft was transported and booked into the Shasta County Jail for vehicle theft, possession of stolen property, possession of a controlled substance, possession of burglary tools, possession of a dangerous weapon, and ex-felon in possession of ammunition.
