A 33-year-old woman and 49-year-old man wanted in connection with a kidnapping and shooting in Covina were arrested Friday evening after being located at a home in Hollywood.

Investigators learned two of the suspects, Kristine Mina, 33, of Covina, and Dominic Garcia, 49, of Montclair, were possibly hiding out at a home in the 6200 block of La Mirada Avenue, east of Vine Street, and conducted surveillance of the home, the department said.

Officers spotted Mina and took her into custody, then surrounded the home and requested help from Los Angeles Police Department Hollywood Division personnel because it was believed Garcia was still inside the house, Covina police said.

Armed with a search warrant for the home, officers called out to Garcia, who walked out of the house and was taken into custody, police said.

On Tuesday, Covina police served a search warrant at a home in the 100 block of North Vecino Drive seeking to “arrest involved persons, locate evidence and develop further investigative leads pertinent to the investigation” and took 20-year-old Sammy Wilson of Baldwin Park into custody.

The kidnapping was reported on or about Feb. 20, when a woman called police saying she had been kidnapped and shot, said Sgt. Keith Sutherland with the Covina Police Department.

She was taken to a hospital, and has since recovered, he said.

Anyone with information related to this investigation or who may have been a victim of the suspects was asked to call Covina police Detective Preciado at 626-384-5622.
