Two arrested in Petaluma in suspected prowling, burglary

Two Novato men were arrested early Saturday in Petaluma in connection with suspected prowling and burglary.

Ryan Carrigan, 36, and Tory Morganti, 42, were arrested near an apartment complex in the 100 block of Cherry Street in Petaluma after a resident called 911 just after 7 a.m. Saturday morning to report a suspicious person.

Carrigan was detained after a brief foot pursuit by a Petaluma police officer. He was found to have methamphetamine in his pocket, police said. He was arrested on suspicion of prowling, resisting arrest and possession of methamphetamine.

A witness report linked Carrigan with a second suspect. Morganti was found at the intersection of West and Keller streets and told officers he was waiting for Carrigan. On parole for burglary, Morganti was subject to search, according to police.

Officers found rubber gloves, a shaved Ford ignition key, duffel bags filled with tools, a paper license plate from a dealership in Marin County, two knives, marijuana and hash.

Morganti was arrested on suspicion of possession of burglary tools and marijuana and hash, and was held without bail at Sonoma County Jail.

Carrigan was no longer in custody late Saturday.
