Two Arrested After Returning To The Scene Of Their Crime

A man and woman were arrested by Placer County Sheriff’s deputies when they returned to the scene of their crime Sunday afternoon.

John T. West, 20, of Sacramento, and Ashley Sorensen, 20, of Auburn, were charged with grand theft and conspiracy for stealing two tires and rims off a car parked in a driveway on Geraldson Road in Ophir.

The pair said they drove by the home a short time after taking the tires to "see if the lady had called the cops." The victim had indeed called the Sheriff’s Department and a deputy standing in the driveway taking a report noticed a vehicle similar to one seen in the area earlier.

The deputy searched the area and found the couple’s Geo parked in a nearby mobile home park – with two Toyota tires and rims. West and Sorenson were transported to the Placer County Jail and booked.
