Madera County – Sheriff John Anderson announced Friday the arrest of a Coarsegold boy – believed to be involved in numerous Yosemite Lakes Park break-ins. Recovered so far, a handgun, two iPods, and a computer.
Sheriff Anderson says the teenager’s arrest is the result of teamwork by California Highway Patrol Sergeant Chris Finnegan and Deputy Sheriff Keith Schoettler.
Friday afternoon, Sgt. Finnegan spotted a juvenile who appeared to match the description of a boy involved in numerous residential break-ins in the YLP area. Familiar with the details of the Mountain Sheriff’s Office ongoing investigation, he took the teenager in custody and called the Sheriff’s Office.
