El Dorado County authorities say they’ve arrested three people believed to be involved in a string of burglaries in Pollock Pines, Camino, Placerville and Georgetown.

Three Georgetown residents were arrested Tuesday and authorities say they recovered a cache of stolen property so massive, it took seven detectives to catalog and a box truck to transport to a storage facility.

Arrested at their Georgetown home were Jeri Acuna, 37, Ryann Jana Leidel, 32, and Tommie Richard Stover. Acuna faces charges of possessing stolen property and vehicle theft, while the other two were arrested for outstanding felony warrants.

Authorities first became aware of the trio when a car that had been reported stolen was spotted outside a Georgetown business on Dec. 4, according to an El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department press release. Detectives learned the car “was associated with” a Georgetown resident, the press release states.

Around the same time, a deputy looking for a wanted felon visited a home off Wentworth Springs Road in Georgetown, and “noticed what he thought might be stolen property.”

On Tuesday, the sheriff’s department received a report of a suspicious vehicle in some bushes behind that same home, and discovered it had been reported stolen.

That evening, deputies served a search warrant at the house.

“During the search of the home and property, hundreds of items that were confirmed to be stolen and numerous other suspected stolen items were located,” the press release states. “So far items have been identified that belong to victims from four separate burglaries and one auto theft.”

The Georgetown burglary suspects were arrested at the scene.

Some of the owners of the stolen property were able to come pick it up at the Georgetown home, and the sheriff’s department says it’s working to identify the owners of other items.
