Rather than pay for repairs, a couple allegedly took their vehicle from a Sonoma Boulevard repair shop at gunpoint Wednesday afternoon. Vallejo police arrested Doncesiva Morgan, 31, of Vallejo at her home, where they tracked after she allegedly left Lipsey’s Muffler and Tire at about 3:20 p.m. with a man brandishing a gun, Lt. Joel Salinas said.

A mechanic at the shop reportedly briefly went into a back room after the couple had arrived to pick up their vehicle, Salinas said. When the mechanic returned, the two allegedly refused to pay, pointing a gun before leaving, Salinas said.
