Copperopolis, CA — A joint operation between the Calaveras County Sheriff´s Department and the Modesto Police Department helped to apprehend a burglary suspect.
Sheriff´s deputies received reports of burglary and grand theft from the Lake Tulloch True Value and a construction site in Copperopolis on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Later in the day Modesto Police notified deputies that they found some of the stolen items during a search of John Boston´s home. Investigators believe there is an unknown accomplice and are asking for the public´s help in locating the second suspect.
Anyone who might have seen a white 1982 Chevy crew cab pick-up with or without a white flat bed trailer in the Copperopolis area earlier in the week is asked to call the Sheriff´s Department.
