Kenneth Deshawn Bailey, 36, has been named by the Galt Police Department as the suspect arrested in connection with a strong-arm robbery attempt in Galt on Tuesday. Bailey was arrested for strong-arm robbery and possession of a stolen vehicle by the California Highway Patrol in Stockton on Tuesday afternoon.
Bailey allegedly escaped in a 2002 Cadillac after attempting to take a woman’s purse west of the Galt Market on Tuesday morning, police said. The robbery attempt was unsuccessful, and a citizen followed the suspect’s vehicle and provided a license plate number. When the plates were checked by authorities, it revealed the car had previously been reported stolen, police said.
