Two men arrested for alleged burglary of Truckee smoke shop
Two men were arrested on Saturday, July 1, for the alleged burglary of a smoke shop in Truckee after authorities discovered the duo holed up in heavy brush near the business.
A 22-year-old Truckee man and a 22-year-old Soda Springs man both face felony charges of commercial burglary and conspiracy, the Truckee Police Department said in a report. Each suspect also faces a misdemeanor charge of resisting officers.
The men were arrested shortly after Truckee police officers responded at 3:48 a.m. to a burglary alarm at Enjoyabowl Smoke Shop, 11084 West River St.
Police officers executed a search warrant at a nearby location, where they recovered additional stolen property. The additional stolen property was allegedly taken from the same business on June 25.
Both men were booked into Nevada County Jail in Truckee. Each suspect is being held on $22,500 bail.
Anyone with information about the alleged burglaries is asked to contact Detective Chase Covington at 530-550-2333.
