An Orangevale man has been arrested on suspicion of stealing a vehicle that contained 60 tickets to an upcoming Sacramento Kings game belonging to a local nonprofit organization, according to a Sacramento Sheriff's Department news release.
The tickets had been donated to the Sweet Dreams Foundation, which decorates bedrooms for children diagnosed with life-threatening diseases, according to the release and the foundation's website.
On March 17, the foundation's founder had her vehicle stolen from the driveway of her home with the tickets inside. The vehicle was found several days later and investigators developed information that led them to conduct a probation search at a residence in the 9300 block of Ottoman Way in Orangevale.
Deputies conducted the search 10 a.m. today, and recovered 29 tickets that had been donated to the foundation, the release states.
Deputies arrested Donald Morris, 27, who was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail on suspicion of possession of stolen property and violation of probation.
Morris was booked at 1:33 p.m., and is being held on $40,000 bail, jail booking logs show.
