LAKEHEAD – A burglary trio struck a residence on September 30 at 1:00 a.m. The group struck on the 1800 block of Pine Street.
However, a neighbor called the police to report the burglary. The neighbor said that the burglars stole several rifles and shotguns.
In addition, the burglars left in a white Honda Passport “with a spare tire on the back.” The caller even got a partial read of the license plate – the first four characters.
Before long a Shasta Lake deputy, travelling north on Interstate 5 saw a vehicle going south on the same. The deputy lost the vehicle, but another deputy spotted it at 1880 Shasta Street.
A female resident of the house told arriving deputies that she found 3 men in her home when she arrived.
The deputies then surrounded the house. Phonexay Phonepaseuth came out first, but did not identify himself or give any other information.
