[ARCHIVED] Burglars Caught Behind Mont Bleu Hotel
On Saturday, December 16, 2017, South Lake Tahoe Police Department (SLTPD) detectives assisted Douglas County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) with a burglary investigation. SLTPD detectives served a search warrant on a motel room at Motel 6, locating a significant amount of stolen property.
The investigation originated at approximately 1:00am on December 16th, when Douglas County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call of three suspects burglarizing a vehicle in the Mont Bleu parking lot. Two DCSO deputies quickly responded and located the suspects in the act. All three suspects were arrested and charged with burglary and conspiracy to commit burglary, and booked into the Douglas County jail. The suspects were identified as Sandra Vilchis-Toledo, age 25, Emmanuel Fonseca, age 32, and Sonia Chavez, age 28. All suspects are from the San Francisco area.
DCSO detectives contacted SLTPD detectives and requested assistance in locating additional stolen property. SLTPD detectives obtained a search warrant for the motel room and discovered several items that had recently been reported stolen in Douglas County. Law enforcement personnel also located numerous items that may have been stolen, but were not previously reported.
The two law enforcement agencies are seeking the public’s help with identifying any additional stolen property. If you have been a victim of theft or burglary in the past several weeks, please contact the South Lake Tahoe Police Department and file a report. If desired, this can also be done online via the City of South Lake Tahoe’s website. Callers can inquire as to the recovery of any possible stolen property. Callers are encouraged to have detailed descriptions of any missing property, as well as any available photos.
