PLACER COUNTY — Two individuals have been arrested on multiple charges, including felony child endangerment and identity theft, after being caught living inside a bank-owned residence on Redhawk Court in North Auburn.
County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived at the residence with a search warrant following numerous complains of disturbances at the house and discovered 38-year-old Angela Cornaggia of Sacramento, who’d reportedly broken in and was living there without permission.
She told she was paying rent via lease agreement with the owners, but Property Crime detectives discovered otherwise.
Upon searching the house, deputies also came across 21-year-old Seneca Cornaggia and a young child also living there, as well as firearms and identification documents belonging to 17 suspected victims of identity theft.
Officials say Angela Cornaggia was caught with methamphetamine and a glass pipe hidden in her clothing.
She was taken into custody on suspicion of burglary, conspiracy to commit a felony, felony child endangerment, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, identity theft, theft by false pretenses, and preparing false evidence (re: the “lease agreement”).
Seneca Cornaggia was also arrested on suspicion of felony child endangerment, being a felon in possession of a handgun, and trespassing.
