MARYSVILLE, Calif. –The Marysville Police Department’s investigation into a residential burglary that occurred on Tuesday ended with an arrest. The arrested man has also been identified as a suspect in several mail and package theft cases in Yuba and Sutter Counties, police said on Sunday.
Social media posts from citizens showed suspects in the package/mail thefts, along with a 90’s green Dodge Durango.
On Friday a patrol officer spotted a similar vehicle, and after conducting a traffic stop, said the driver of the Durango matched the description of the suspect they were looking for.
The suspect, 44-year-old Bobby Heffley of Oroville, was arrested for burglary and a felony warrant, said Marysville Police on Sunday. They said a passenger in the vehicle was issued a citation at the same time for drug-related charges.
Marysville Police say they are now reaching out to other law enforcement agencies to share information. They said they hope the results of their investigation can be used to solve some of the additional cases in the region.
Marysville Police Chief Christian S. Sachs said that the community-posted videos and photos were crucial in identifying the suspect in the burglary case, and possibly other cases. He thanked the local citizens for their vigilance in a press release issued on Sunday.
