El Dorado County authorities have turned to the public for help in finding two men for their alleged roles in a recent burglary.
On the evening of Jan. 27, sheriff’s deputies in El Dorado Hills stopped a suspicious black Mercedes sedan after noticing it was driving slowly through the Mormon Island and Lake Ridge Oaks areas.
Inside the vehicle were 21-year-olds Jacob Scott Mack and Mark Jon Williams as well as 19-year-old Jason Earl Rogers. Deputies learned that all three men were either on parole or probation.
A search of the car yielded several items but deputies were unable to determine whether they were stolen.
All three men were released after the initial investigation.
Several hours later, authorities received a report of a burglary in Cameron Park. Property reported stolen from the residence reportedly matched items found by deputies inside of the Mercedes.
On Feb. 2, detectives searched Rogers’ home during a parole search and found what they described as a “large amount of stolen property.” He was arrested.
Detectives then contacted neighboring agencies in an attempt to match the items found at Rogers’ home with any unsolved burglary cases in other jurisdictions. Arrest warrants for Mack and William have since been issued.
