Five Arrested Amid Investigation into Theft of Heirloom Furniture
The Placer County Sheriff’s Office has announced five arrests as a result of an investigation into the alleged theft of thousands of dollars worth of heirloom furniture.
Deputies and detectives in the Foresthill area launched an investigation into the alleged theft of over $7,500 in heirloom furniture from the 1800s, which were stolen after the victim lost their house and barn in the Mosquito Fire, the Sheriff’s Office said.
The owner of the house reportedly imparted to investigators that they believed family members of a former renter may have been involved.
On October 20, after identifying two suspects, investigators served a search warrant at their home, ultimately recovering much of the victim’s stolen property.
Investigators also confiscated four guns, over half a pound of suspected fentanyl, over an ounce of suspected heroin, and over an ounce of suspected methamphetamine.
Investigators also made five arrests, three of whom already had active warrants. The suspects arrested are identified as Amanda Graham (39), Brandon Garner (41), Jessica Damigo (39), James Gonzales (37), and Christopher Diaz (42).
