Sheriff's alert - Help needed in crime spree - Update
Sheriff John D’Agostini’s Detectives have made 4 arrests this week related to burglaries in El Dorado County. They have identified some of the recovered stolen property to burglaries from the Pollock Pines area to the Georgetown area. A blue Fire Department sweatshirt was also recovered during the investigation. Cruz County Fire, Pajaro Dunes, is written on the sweatshirt. This sweatshirt could have been used during the burglaries and may be the cause of the rumors that the suspects were dressed in Cal Fire Uniforms. The Sheriff’s Office has not received any corroborating information to indicate that burglary suspects are using actual Cal-Fire apparel when committing their crimes in El Dorado County.
Since the first of October there have been numerous homes burglarized in the Pollock Pines and Sly Park area stretching from Pollock Pines to Pleasant Valley. Many of these burglaries have been committed during the daylight hours, when the homeowners are away. Sheriff John D’Agostini’s detective section is working diligently to solve these crimes but they need your help.
If you see anyone that looks suspicious or any vehicles that are not known to you and are not familiar to your area, please report that information to the patrol division for immediate follow up. Information can also be reported directly to the detective section during normal business hours at 530-642-4703.
