A Lincoln man has been arrested following an alleged burglary and vandalism at a property on McCourtney Road.
Just after midnight on September 26th, a Placer County Sheriff’s deputy responded to an active alarm at a large building on a property in Lincoln. Hearing glass breaking from somewhere inside, the deputy entered the building and began searching, eventually coming across a broken window and, later, a pair of binoculars, a flashlight, and a speaker.
The latter items were determined to have been stolen from a trailer the deputy had seen parked outside, which itself had several broken windows and appeared to have been ransacked.
Investigators obtained surveillance video from the scene that showed the suspect throw a chair at the building in an attempt to break in.
Because of the sheer size of the property, an air surveillance unit was commissioned, as well as a K-9 officer from Roseville PD. The combined effort led to the discovery of the primary suspect, identified as 49-year-old Aaron Henderson, hiding on the property in the back of a large vehicle.
Authorities reportedly found cash and a garage door opener on Henderson’s person, which they later determined had been stolen from the trailer. They say that, in total, he’d also done about $3,000 in damage to the property.
Henderson was arrested and booked on suspicion of burglary and vandalism.
