The Placer County Sheriff’s Office were at work in the middle of the night when they spotted a pair of criminals lurking about –
“Early Thursday morning around 3:30 a.m., one of our deputies spotted a vehicle with burned out side tail lamp traveling westbound on Interstate 80 near Sierra College Boulevard.
The deputy conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle and contacted the occupants, 25-year old Savannah Vetterli, on probation out of Alameda County, and 33-year old Corey Reese.
A search of the vehicle revealed stolen mail and packages from Rocklin residents, a stolen check, tax returns, driver’s license, an EBT card and work identification, all belonging to other people. Deputies counted more than ten victims of identity theft. When the deputies went to contact the victims at their homes, they found one of the mailboxes had been pried open.
Vetterli and Reese were arrested and charged with identity theft of ten or more people and conspiracy. They were booked at the South Placer Jail.”
