LINCOLN – As a LPD officer exited the Raley’s parking lot, a suspicious car nearly hit him. The red Jeep had a license plate but no registration sticker. The plate in fact belonged to a Mitsubishi.
The officer stopped the driver,m 29-year-old Andrey Yakimov of Rio Linda. Yakimov, on searchable probation, hit some things under the seat before their meeting.
A subsequent search yielded credit cards, checkbooks and ID that belonged to at least a dozen people.
So far, investigators contacted two of the victims of theft to confirm the crime. Yakimov also had brand new power tools in his Jeep, recently purchased with stolen credit cards.
His charges include possession of stolen property, fraudulent use of a credit card and probation violation. His bail is $112,000.
