From David Richie:
Four men are due in court Tuesday morning after their arrests last week in connection with a series of vehicle burglaries in the area around Plum Tree Court in Citrus Heights.
An alert resident called Citrus Heights police about 1 a.m. April 15, reporting that his truck had just been broken into. Other witnesses described a small four-door sedan with a loud muffler that had been seen in the area.
Officers spotted a car matching that description and stopped it at about 1:30 a.m. near Sunrise Boulevard and Old Auburn Road . They detained the driver, Dmitriy Drobenyuk, 21, as well as passengers Pavel Vaslinskiy, 21, Eugene Andreyov, 25, and Vitaly Bukhalyuk, 23.
A search of the car turned up crowbars and other items police described as burglary tools as well as suspected stolen property.
All four men were booked into Sacramento County Jail.
They each face charges of burglary and possession of stolen property.
