As of November 4th, police have announced the arrest of 31-year-old Blain Anthony St. Germaine of Hornbrook.
Germain and two co-conspirators were identified and charged with burglary and possession of stolen property in connection to multiple trailer break-ins in the 16000 block of Hornbrook Road. The deputy responding to the initial report developed investigative leads which pointed to Germaine as the primary suspect. After a warrant was granted by Siskiyou County Superior Court, his home was searched and, later, his vehicle after a felony stop.
A number of the stolen items were recovered from Germaine’s vehicle and residence, including a stolen handgun. The approximate value of the recovered property was $2,824. A small amount of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia were also recovered.
Germaine was booked at the Siskiyou County Jail for felony burglary as well as theft-related offenses.
