A Placerville Website operator was arrested on Feb. 6 on suspicion of using a false license plate and false registration.

At 10 a.m., while heading southbound on Placerville drive, a sheriff’s deputy noticed that a registration sticker was not attached correctly to the suspect’s license plate, said Sgt. Phil Chovanec of the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department. The suspect was identified as Christopher Alarcon, 43, of Placerville.

The driver reportedly acted suspiciously while the deputy was following.

After running the suspect’s license plate, it was found the plates had expired in 2009 and belonged to a different vehicle.

Alarcon was placed under arrest on suspicion of a false license plate and false vehicle registration. His car was towed.

    Is this the same Chris AlarCON that Ray Nutting is associated with? No..wait, this is the same Cris AlarCON that ran Ray Nutting's campaign! The more I know of Ray the less I am impressed. The same old corrupt political crap looking for more kingdom building. I say its time to get rid of Ray and his unscrupulous associates.

    Mr. Steers, I don't know -- this is a tough one. His car, bad plate. Maybe someone who doesn't like him put it on. But, his current registration form will show the plate number he paid for this year. Ouch, no registration? But, he must have one or the Deputy would have cited him for that. Darn, I just read the last sentence which I scanned over before. False plate, false registration, vehicle towed. But this is America so we will have to considered him innocent -- however, not looking good. P.S. I hesitate to ask whether he had required insurance to drive.

    Alarcon has been trying to convince this community for years that he is a leader and deserving of respect. However, for years, many still find him creepy, suspicious, untrustworthy yet we said nothing, and never asked the tough questions. This arrest validates those "gut feelings" and the hair standing up on the back of the neck. It is probably time that this community started to ask more about Alarcon. What else has he done? If he can be so blatant to use false, stolen, misplaced registration tags on his car, what else has he done? So all of the local service clubs, political committees, etc. that have allowed him to hang around, you might want to audit your books and check your wallets - or at least make sure you still have that current registration tag on your car.

    There is a bad smell here of something rotten and how much of this foul fruit is hanging together. That someone with close politcal ties as a campaign manager and associate would use fraud as a way of avoiding small registration fees really is frightening. Good Job done by the alert deputy here. Once again, the interconnected network of people who proclaim themselves the political elite in the county are suspect of at least poor judgment in who they associate with. The other question is why was Nutting and his campaign people always showing up at other candidates events last election and why was Nutting usually seen at the new Sheriff's campaign gatherings. There is a foul odor surrounding this.

    I have been blind to those proclaiming that there is a GOB's club here in our fine County. As well as a little hurt that I've never been invited to join. I'm kidding. I didn't quite know who the ring leaders are. Now I see more clearly. There is a small group of people who act as parasites and live on the underbelly of our political system. This guy and his business partner are a couple of them. They have developed some bonifides buy working on small campaigns as well as less informed or not as politically astute candidates. Hopefully people will wisen up and cease hiring the likes of this individual to perform the dirty work on their campaigns in the future.

    Take a look at the big picture, how long has he gotten away with his intent to defraud and go without paying for registration, but more important how he has had an attitude about others and the law. Now look at who surrounds themselves with this type of person, a leader I think not, is this just the tip of the iceberg. The three have a consulting business in shady politics and the win at all costs results, all surrounded by illegal activity, we will see more to come as the investigation unfolds. The GOB's are a large group who have been exposed now and we all will wait for their down fall.....

    Dear Mr. Martin: How is Ray Nutting responsible for Mr. Alarcon's actions? Was Mr. Alarcon driving a car owned by Ray Nutting? Was Ray Nutting in the car with Mr. Alarcon when he was stopped? Talk about cheap guilt by association. Is everyone who has ever employed Mr. Alarcon guilty of corruption now? Is every friend or associate of Mr. Alarcon guilty of corruption now as well and please explain how Ray Nutting was to know if Mr. Alarcon's license plate was the correct one. Do you think Mr. Nutting has the entire DMV data base memorized? Mr. Martin if you are one of Scott McNeil's fan boys and see this as an opportunity to slam his rival I would cautious you. Schadenfreude has a way of biting one in the back side sir.

    Be careful when you play in dirt because you will always get some on you, those who write about Ray do so as he does associate with felons and does have an interest in those who give him money and does do shady things to get it. As he Dan and Chris enter into business together it is "Gulity by Association" and it's "Win at all Costs" and that is important when looking back at how Ray has got what he has. Lie about knowing those when caught but facts are facts and those who gave do expect favors down the road and have gotten them from Ray as that too is his history; "Time for a Change-Replace Ray".

    Look up the 460's at the Elections Office and you too will see the connection and Political Ties of those who commit crimes associated to Ray, DA. Sheriff and his partners in a consulting firm to elect more of the same. About the Sheriff and DA why look the other way, go after all illegal activity and when Ray said he didn't know the two who run the mine and Ray's son works for them why not charge Ray in obstructing the investigation, it is a GOB network and those protect each other. That's the connection and the reason we all talk here.

    Tonto is shooting some pretty dull arrows these days. All he/she does is bash on anything that has to do with decisions made by Sheriff D’Agostini or people who could possibly be associated with him. Tonto is clearly an illogical political hack who could care less about bettering our community. For people like Tonto it is all about crying over spilled milk because their candidate lost or the current candidate in office does not give in to their every wish or desire. My guess is that Tonto, Rebel, 10-36 Frank and all of these other EDSO and Sheriff D’Agostini bashing folks are possibly disgruntled former and current EDSO employees who did not get their way. I am a fervent believer in the 1st Amendment, however the arrows of Tonto and the knives thrown by the likes of Rebel and 10-36 Frank get duller and duller day by day as they demonstrate their true agenda, which is bashing the Sheriff. It states in the article, Mr. AlarCON was arrested by the Sheriff's Office and had his vehicle towed. Last time I checked, our Sheriff is John D'Agostini. It does not sound like Mr. AlarCON was given preferential treatment even if he has any sort of political connection to our Sheriff. Do you hacks really think the Sheriff is going to want to associate with a fraud like AlarCON? You have every right to voice your opinion as do I. Maybe we should all wait and see if AlarCON continues to try and buddy up to the Sheriff and Supervisor Nutting and every other politician that he has been involved with. AlarCON is currently listed as running Cathy Nerwinski's campaign for county supervisor as well. Let's see what the actions of those in power are in response to this before we continue to shoot dull arrows and throw even duller knives.

    Tinkerbell, one does not have to look to far in our new electronic world (Youtube, Facebook, PR Pond) to see the proof regarding the political ties. Have you ever met Mr. Alarcon? I have. I have had the unfortunate luck of having to cross paths several times over the years. His appearance and attitude leave no doubt that this is someone to keep at a distance. Alarcon has more than one alias. He was asked to leave, meaning no longer come back, by at least two solid local service club/non-profit organizations in this community. Alarcon has made a "living" or attempts to demonstrate his worth by conducting full on character assassination on any and every person who has challenged or crossed those he supports politically. My comments are not to be intended as an attack on the sheriff or Ray; however, Alarcon and Ray are connected at the hip. I encourage you to visit Alarcon's Youtube site "Placervilleinfo" and see for yourself. Numerous videos of Alarcon using the Elf Yourself program to make numerous funny (?) videos of Ray and their circle of friends. Actually a little weird that a grown man posts these videos. Ray and the sheriff have both benefited (during and after their campaigns) from Alarcon's beyond nasty attacks on anyone who crosses them. It is my hope that both the sheriff and Ray take the necessary steps to distance themselves as far as they can from this person and join the rest of us in chasing him out of this community. Alarcon had options if he could not pay his registration. His choice on how to handle the matter speaks volumes about his lack of character. There are many in this community who claim to have knowledge of past (convicted) criminal activity by alarcon or his alias. We can only hope that if the DA can legally seek to prosecute this case, he can run the DOJ and FBI level background checks that are necessary to uncover the truth and confirm that the stolen/illegal registration tags incident was just but one criminal act of many. I will suggest that you take it upon yourself to find an out of county law enforcement officer and introduce him to alarcon and not provide any information, real or speculated, about alarcon before they meet. I already know what the officer's response to you will be. No member of the law enforcement community that genuinely abides by their oath and their badge would ever allow Alarcon to associate with their family, their community activities (political campaigns especially) or any person they care about. Tinkerbell, you need to let go of the community outrage you see as an attack on Ray and the sheriff or sour grapes for elections past and see this as a man finally being exposed for what he is. What Ray and the sheriff opt to do now regarding their established relationships with alarcon will speak volumes about their integrity. As far as recent political activity, if I lived in the Pioneer Fire Protection District, where a benefit assessment was just passed to improve fire protections services, I would be asking some questions. Ray and Alarcon ran the campaign to pass that measure. While I am in support of improved fire services and would vote in favor of one where I live (even with the recent State SRA fee in place) I would be very concerned if the campaign in support of the measure was run above board and if there is a full accounting of the funds donated to the campaign effort.

Kinda like a guy with a bigger.......you know people begin to feel inadequate, and once that happens, otherwise normal people are capable of saying damn near anything. They may even believe it. Witness these posts. So, Mr. Stevens here is a test of where you're at: What alias(es)? What crimes? What social clubs? When? Any witnesses willing to come forward to support your wild claims? Who did the "asking"? Don't know why I asked these questions, because I know the answers will make even Mr. Alarcon jealous for their cleverness. Just tought I would give it a try.

    Well Jack, let's start with the last name of Prince. Seems to be one of his favorites. He has also gone by Christopher and Cristofer and some variations. If you know anyone at the Boys and Girls Club or Rotary or the Business Alliance, knock yourself out and ask why he is no longer a member or working on a contract basis for them. While he has some family here and may even be "from" here, he was quite busy in the Bay Area for few years. As far as his background, if he is as clean as you would like to believe Jack, ask him to subject himself to a background check - a real one. I expect he will decline, as he has done before. As far as the "crimes" go, I have heard all kinds of stuff per the rumor mill and honestly have disregarded most; however, there a few items that have been shared with me more than once and by people in this community I trust. I stand by my statements, for what it is worth, but have probably stood up a little more than I should have. Stay tuned, I will probably end up as the topic of his next Youtube post, complete with his liberal use of self serving edits and complete lack of fact. I now wait and hope that the DA has the legal ability to include what I honestly believe to be his past record as part of a prosecution for the matter of discussion. In my opinion, this will be the long awaited opportunity to learn the truth legally, once and for all. As far as why don't these other people stand up, come forward, etc. with what they know, SERIOUSLY? Have you ever received or read any one of the numerous electronic media sources he uses? Youtube? PR Pond? I can't blame anyone for wanting to stay off of his radar. Regardless if the information he posts is wrong, his actions and methods are inflammatory, peronally devastating to his targets, and pure character assassination. I have watched him for years and wondered why this community continues to look the other way. Gradually, some groups and many people have been able to cut their ties without too much fall out, but why it has taken some others so much longer or why they refuse is unfortunate. For those of the position of innocent until proven guilty, Alarcon (or whoever he is this week) has NEVER afforded that dignity to any person he has targeted. At the very least, he might now be getting a taste for how he has treated others.

    http://www.inedc.com/1-25 John Stevens has a number of points I can confirm. There are real reasons alarcon was asked to leave those clubs and they are valid. This arrest is just another faction of his values. The above link also addresses his attack vs alliance in the political arena. You have an ad for who he supports next to an article of that persons opponent disguised as "news". There are so many examples of his slanted "reporting" that it has become laughable. If he was honest and just call it for what it is- editorial or opinion- no one would care. It is unfortunate that he has come to the public surface on such a violation, but it is just the tip of the iceberg for anyone willing to look.

He himself at the time did not have the proper licensing for his various enterprises. Now maybe all the people who were quick to jump on his side in an attack against my efforts will think again about who was right.
