Three Placer County men have been arrested on suspicion of grand theft and other charges after allegedly stealing thousands of dollars in merchandise from a Home Depot store.

On Saturday, March 14, an employee at the Home Depot in Auburn noticed a rented van parked outside near an emergency exit. As he approached, two men exited the store with a cart full of merchandise and began loading it into the van.

Though the employee yelled for them to stop, the suspects sped off. The employee was nonetheless able to take down the plate number and provide a description to deputies.

Deputies later spotted the vehicle along westbound I-80 and pulled the suspects over near the Rocklin Road exit.

They searched the vehicle and found numerous stolen faucets (about $5,000 worth) from Home Depot, as well as more stolen faucets (around $1,000 worth) from an unknown store. Also located were bolt and wire cutters, demagnetizers, a saw, a drill, and a pry bar.

The three suspects — Zennon Souza (24), Margarito Rojo (24), and Matthew Detherage (31) — have all been arrested on suspicion of burglary, grand theft, conspiracy, possession of stolen property, and possession of burglary tools.
