Warrants Net Deputies Five Arrests in Copperopolis

Five people, including one from Sonora, were arrested Tuesday on charges ranging from possession of stolen property to possession and sale of methamphetamine.

Early Tuesday morning, Calaveras County Sheriff´s deputies served several warrants as part of a property investigation. 33-year-old Cindy Marie Davis of Sonora allegedly gave officers a false name and then fled the scene. She was picked up about 4 hours later.

Four other suspects from Copperopolis were arrested on a variety of charges. Eric Richard Smith is charged with possession and sale of meth. Gary Lee was arrested for occupying a condemned residence. Jeremiah Magruder and Alan Seider were arrested for conspiracy and possession of stolen property including stolen checks. Magruder was also arrested on similar charges a few weeks ago.

Officials say the arrests indicate stolen check scams are still active in the area.
