Blood Vandalism Cases-SRPD Cases 21-4053 and 21-4084
*Updated Press Release*

 
This is an updated press release regarding two incidents where a residence and statue were vandalized with pig’s blood on April 17, 2021.  Additionally, a decapitated pig’s head had been left at the residence.  The cost to clean up these vandalisms had previously been estimated to be in the thousands of dollars.  The original press release is included below.
 
Since the initial incidents described below that took place on April 17th, 2021, detectives from the Santa Rosa Police Department Property Crimes Team have continued to follow up on investigative leads.  This has included attempting to locate additional witnesses and evidence.  
 
On May 11th, 2021, at around 9:30 a.m., detectives served a search warrant in the 3900 block of Match Point Avenue in Santa Rosa. During the service of the search warrant, detectives arrested, Rowan Dalbey, a 20-year-old Santa Rosa resident and Kristen Aumoithe, a 34-year-old Santa Rosa resident.
 
At around 1:00 p.m., detectives arrested Amber Lucas, a 35-year-old Santa Rosa resident in the 200 block of 8th Street and subsequently served a search warrant at a residence in the area.
 
Additional evidence was recovered during the search warrants, and all three suspects were booked into jail on the following charges related to these two incidents:
 
Penal Code § 182 (a)- Conspiracy
Penal Code § 594 (a) (1)-2 Felony Counts of Vandalism
 
This investigation is still ongoing, and there are still additional leads and information that detectives are following up on.  We believe there are additional suspects that were involved and are asking for our community’s help in identifying them.  Anyone who witnessed the incident or has information that would assist with the investigation is encouraged to contact SRPD through our online Tip Line: www.srcity.org/CrimeTips

***********Initial Press Release*************
 
On Saturday, April 17th, 2021 at 3:07 a.m., Santa Rosa Police responded to a residence in west Santa Rosa that had just been vandalized. The victim called Santa Rosa Police after they were awakened by a group of subjects who threw a pig’s head on their front porch and splattered blood on the front of their house. The subjects, dressed in all black,  ran away as the victim called the police department.
 
Officers arrived to find the front of the victim’s house smeared with what appeared to be animal blood and a decapitated pig’s head near the front porch. The vandalism to the victim’s house exceeded $400 making the crime committed by the suspects a felony vandalism.  The victim’s house was the previous residence of Mr.Barry Brodd.  Mr. Brodd recently testified for the defense in Minneapolis Police Officer Derrick Chauvin’s trial. It appears the suspects in this vandalism were targeting Mr. Brodd for his testimony. Mr. Brodd has not lived at the residence for a number of years and is no longer a resident of California. Because Mr. Brodd no longer lives in the city of Santa Rosa, it appears the victim was falsely targeted.  
 
Approximately 45 minutes later, a large hand statue in front of the Santa Rosa Plaza mall was vandalized with a similar substance, suspected to be animal blood. The suspects also left a sign in front of the statue which had a picture of a pig and read “Oink Oink.” The suspects were seen fleeing the area and matched the descriptions of the suspects who vandalized the house.
 
Santa Rosa Police Chief Rainer Navarro issued a statement on April 13th  following Mr. Brodd’s testimony during the Derek Chauvin trial, and stated,  “Mr. Brodd’s comments do not reflect the values and beliefs of the Santa Rosa Police Department.” (View Chief Navarro’s April 13th statement: https://srcity.org/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=1416)
 
The Santa Rosa Police Department is currently conducting further investigation to identify the suspects in these vandalisms. Anyone who witnessed the incident or has information that would assist with the investigation is encouraged to contact SRPD through our online Tip Line: www.srcity.org/CrimeTips
