Ashley Barnett and Sireena Dominguez

Sheriff’s deputies and detectives detained Sireena Dominguez of New Cuyama and Ashley Barnett of Santa Maria, both 25 years old, on Wednesday on suspicion of operating a felonious mail theft ring. The suspects were located and subsequently arrested at a ranch outside Cuyama after a weeklong search. The two women are suspected of stealing a large bag’s worth of mail from Highway 246 residences and using stolen credit card information to book two Buellton hotel rooms, from which they allegedly took two flat-screen televisions, two media charging stations, two alarm clocks, a microwave oven, and two baskets. Dominguez is suspected of forgery and is being held on $25,000 bail, while Barnett is charged with criminal conspiracy and held on $100,000 bail.
