Thanks to media exposure and some helpful citizens, El Dorado County sheriff’s officials have apprehended a suspect in the $7,000 theft that occurred in El Dorado Hills earlier this month.

On May 20 a previously unknown man broke into the Town Center Bike and Tri shop on Town Center Boulevard. When he left the shop he took a bicycle and bicycle accessories worth approximately $7,000. Photographs were obtained of the suspect and through the media the public was asked to help identify him.

Thanks to the media and those in the public who responded to the Sheriff’s Office’s request for assistance, Det. Troy Morton was able to identify the suspect and obtain a search warrant for a location in Sacramento and another location in West Sacramento. While serving the search warrant Morton recovered the Town Center Bike and Tri stolen property and other stolen property from a crime committed in another jurisdiction. Morton  took the suspect, 40-year-old Brandon Lee Rose, into custody.

Sheriff John D’Agostini and his staff expressed thanks to the media and the public for their assistance in solving these cases and remind residents to stay vigilant. If someone observes any activity, person or circumstance that appears suspicious, report it.
