An investigation by the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Investigations Division led to three arrests Dec. 11 in connection with a string of burglaries from Pollock Pines and Camino through Placerville and outlying areas of Georgetown.

Deputies found a vehicle on Dec. 4 that had been stolen in a recent burglary, a press release stated. Detectives were able to connect a Georgetown resident to the car.

Meanwhile, deputies were looking for a wanted felon at an address on Wentworth Springs Road. A deputy, while there, noticed what he thought was stolen property and advised detectives.

On Dec. 10, deputies received a report of a suspicious vehicle parked behind the same Wentworth Springs address. It matched the description of a vehicle reported to the CHP as stolen. Deputies again responded to the residence and confirmed the vehicle to be the reported stolen vehicle.

A search warrant for the residence and surrounding property was approved. It was served the evening of Dec. 10. Hundreds of items, confirmed as stolen, were found during the search of the home and property. A number of other items suspected to be stolen were also discovered. The items were found in connection with four burglaries and one auto theft.

The itemization and photographing of the items began the next day. Due to the number of items found, it took a week to finish. While some of the stolen property was returned to the rightful owners and victims at the scene, the remaining property had to be moved by box truck to a storage facility.

Three Georgetown residents were arrested in connection with the burglaries. Jeri Acuna, 37, was arrested on suspicion of possession of stolen property and a stolen vehicle. Ryann Jana Leidel, 32, was arrested on two outstanding felony warrants. Tommie Richard Stover, a parolee, was also arrested on two felony warrants.

The investigation continues, but the Investigations Division anticipates matching the remaining property to additional victims.

    And Ms. Acuna was released... and then re-arrested for a different crime (I believe it was possession of a firearm) - Yes, she's learned the error of her ways and is ready to start over. The justice system needs to start throwing the book at these folks -

That language seems a little harsh to me. Reply | Report abusive comment James E.November 07, 2013 - 3:01 pm Dee, I continue to see the Tea Party as enemies of the State, but I would leave it to the courts to determine if they should be burned at the stake. Probably just prison sentences of 50 years to life. Don't confuse my being reasonable with my opinion of the Tea Party.

    Einstein 1948---I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate (the) grave evils (of capitalism), namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals. In such an economy, the means of production are owned by society itself and are utilized in a planned fashion. A planned economy, which adjusts production to the needs of the community, would distribute the work to be done among all those able to work and would guarantee a livelihood to every man, woman, and child. The education of the individual, in addition to promoting his own innate abilities, would attempt to develop in him a sense of responsibility for his fellow-men in place of the glorification of power and success in our present society." --------------------------Einstein and Palin should not be mentioned in the same sentence, Einstein also was a civil rights activist and carried a NAACP card.........You sir are a moron.

    Wiki-In early April 1933, Einstein learned that the new German government had passed laws barring Jews from holding any official positions, including teaching at universities.[58] A month later, Einstein's works were among those targeted by Nazi book burnings, and Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels proclaimed, "Jewish intellectualism is dead."[58] Einstein also learned that his name was on a list of assassination targets, with a "$5,000 bounty on his head."[58] One German magazine included him in a list of enemies of the German regime with the phrase, "not yet hanged"

    Dictionary.com-Last week, in Slate’s podcast, Lexicon Valley, the hosts brought up the funny example of the phrase “between you and I.” Technically, it should be “between you and me.” However, the phrase “between you and I” has become accepted as an idiom of its own. Even Shakespeare used it! Funny you chose only the one post to attempt to correct.

It is the political ideology that is the source of societal rot that feeds off the destruction of people and their potential. In order for leftism to have any purpose it must first stomp people into pathetic, desperate, dependent, worthless empty shells. Then and only then can leftism ride to the rescue by stealing from the productive and redistributing to the human sewage it creates.

    Mr. Mehoff, I knew you would pick up on as sober as a judge. No doubt there are drunk judges but we all hope they sober up before they take the bench. That would make a good appeal -- the judge was drunk through the entire trial and was so drunk at the close that he couldn't give jury instructions. The bailiff had to do it.
