Santa Ana Police detectives have turned up the heat when it comes to locating a "female of interest" in an attempted robbery at the Double Tree Hotel on East Macarthur Boulvard on Jan. 6.
Police previously revealed she is 26, known as "Jamie," possibly living in North Hollywood and suspected of accompanying Christopher Augustin Herrera, 27, of Bell Gardens, and Sandy Christina Caceros, 24, of La Palma, in allegedly trying to rob a man staying at the Double Tree.
Herrera allegedly came up from behind a man who'd entered his room at the hotel at 201 E. MacArthur Blvd., Santa Ana, demanded money and when the victim refused, Herrera beat him before running away with two females, according to police. Surveillance video showed Herrera, Caceros and the so-called "Jamie Doe" in the hotel that night.
Caceros and Herrera were originally linked to an attack at the Best Western in Dana Point last month, when a man who had arranged to meet someone else via a Backpage.com classified advertisement was allegedly roughed up and doused with pepper spray before cash, a cell phone and a computer tablet were taken from him. Sheriff's investigators say evidence from that case led to Caceros and Herrera being suspected in the Santa Ana hotel crime as well.
In an attempt to identify Jamie Doe and possibly reunite victims with stolen property, police detectives released these photographs:

The unique jewelry boxes, duck figures and other items were recovered from Caceros' apartment and considered to be possible stolen property taken in local burglaries or robberies.
