The Yolo County District Attorney's Office announced Monday that a Woodland woman charged with stealing a local man's car while he left the engine running in the driveway was convicted of carjacking, robbery and auto theft. And Marissa Price's accomplice, Vanessa McKee-Salazar, also of Woodland, was found guilty of auto theft and grand theft.
The district attorney said witnesses testified at trial that Price, 19, and McKee-Salazar, 23, were riding their bikes about 6 o'clock the morning of Nov. 8, 2014, when they saw the victim's car unattended. As the pair moved to drive off with the car, the victim, hearing voices, ran out because he thought his 9-year-old daughter was in the car. The victim and his daughter had been getting ready to hang flags in downtown Woodland for Veterans Day, according to the D.A.'s office.
