KCBS_740LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say a Bay Area couple suspected of driving a stolen car to New Mexico face several other charges.

Las Cruces police say 35-year-old Christopher Cairati and 20-year-old Sabrina May Burns were arrested on suspicion of one count each of possession of a stolen vehicle and conspiracy.

They say Burns also is facing a charge of possession of a controlled substance.

The couple from Santa Rosa was arrested Nov. 8 after being involved in a three-car crash.

Police say one of the vehicles had a fake license plate and was reported stolen from Santa Rosa on Nov. 4.

During the booking process, police say Burns was found to be concealing methamphetamine and a glass pipe.

She was also issued citations for driving with a suspended license and without insurance or registration.
