Daily outrage: Burglars take advantage of family’s death to rob unoccupied house

WHO: Amber True and Michael Gutierrez

WHAT: It was big news in the Bay Area when Johnathan and Susan Maloney, along with their two young children, were killed Saturday after a driver in a speeding Mini Cooper ran a red light and plowed into their minivan. Three days later, burglars ransacked the family’s unoccupied Sonoma house, stealing jewelry, electronics and a 2006 Nissan 350z.

HOW THEY GOT CAUGHT: True was arrested during a routine traffic stop when a San Mateo County sheriff’s deputy allegedly found her with a credit card belonging to Susan Maloney. Detectives said they later found Gutierrez with the stolen Nissan, and a search of his Redwood City home revealed more property of the deceased family. The suspects are being held on $500,000 bail.
