Three women and one man have been arrested in the case, according to a Sheriff's Department news release.

Detectives are seeking Amanda Jojo, 21 (left), who is wanted on suspicion of burglary charges. All of the suspects are from Placer County.

Over the past several months, Stephanie Cooke-Perez, 27, Jayme L. Salcedo, 33, Karissa D. Yeager, 27, and Joseph W. Einspahr, 30, were arrested, a sheriff's spokeswoman said. (Below, from left to right, top to bottom.)

They are suspected of breaking into cars in the sheriff's jurisdiction, as well as State Parks' jurisdiction in Placer County, the spokeswoman said.

The group has been identified in 10 residential and vehicle burglaries, she said.

Detectives are still sorting through a large amount of stolen property found on the group and attempting to identify more burglaries.

Salcedo and Yeager have posted bail, the spokeswoman said.

Cooke-Perez is being held without bail on suspicion of a parole violation as well as charges of burglary, receiving stolen property, possession of a controlled substance and committing a felony while out on bail, the spokeswoman said.

Einspahr remains in custody at the Placer County Jail with bail set at $115,000, she said. He is charged with burglary, receiving stolen property, conspiracy, possession of a controlled substance, committing a felony while out on bail and a $25,000 warrant from Nevada County, she said.
