“On June 28th at 12:40 a.m., deputies responded to a suspicious circumstances call in North Auburn. The caller told dispatch she was alerted by her surveillance camera to a male standing in her backyard, looking into her bedroom window. Deputies arrived at the victim’s residence within minutes and saw a male running from the backyard. Our K-9 Unit was called out to track the suspect, but was unable to locate him. When deputies reviewed the surveillance footage, they saw the suspect had pulled down his shorts and was gratifying himself while looking through the victim’s window.
On June 29th at 9 a.m., the suspect from the previous night called the Placer County Sheriff’s Office to turn himself in. The suspect identified himself as 21-year old Joshua Tucker of Auburn. At the conclusion of the investigation, it was determined that Tucker had stalked the victim for about a year and had attempted to enter her home on multiple occasions.
Tucker was arrested for attempted residential burglary, stalking, peeping, and engaging in a lewd act in a public place.”
