Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — In just a single day a pair of Tuolumne County Sheriffs deputies, Brandon Lowry and Rodney Hobbs, were able to arrest three Twain Harte teens for conspiracy, possession of stolen property, burglary and theft of items stolen from eight to 10 vehicles in the Twain Harte area over the weekend.

Deputy Paul Tualla (pictured) says the two deputies worked throughout the day investigating the crime scenes and interviewing a number of individuals. The deputies went off some prior contact information and made the arrests Sunday.

Arrested were two 16 year olds and a 15 year old. They were transported to the County Probation Office and booked for processing.

The majority of the stolen items were recovered and returned to the rightful owners by days´ end.

Tualla adds that everyone should 1) lock your vehicle, 2) park in a well lighted area, 3) use anti-theft devices, 4) remove personal property from your vehicle and finally engrave and photograph your personal items.
