Placerville mayor arrested on perjury, conspiracy allegations

By Carlos Alcalá

Placerville Mayor David J. Machado has been arrested on allegations of perjury and conspiracy in connection with his interest in property within the Placerville Redevelopment Zone.
Machado failed to disclose his interest in the property and tried to conceal evidence while voting to approve the zone and taking actions on behalf of the property, according to a criminal complaint issued by the El Dorado County District Attorney.

Officials of the District Attorney's office confirmed Machado had been arrested but declined further comment except to release the complaint.

Machado was released on $30,000 bail at 3:45 p.m., according an El Dorado County Sheriff's Office official.

A man answering the phone at Machado's home hung up when a Bee reporter called and identified himself.
