Man jailed after found asleep in car full of stolen property

A Sacramento man was arrested by Placer County sheriff's deputies after he was found passed out in a car that was full of stolen property, illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia.

Deputies were called to the Walgreen's parking lot on Douglas Boulevard in Granite Bay about 11:40 a.m. Thursday. When they arrived, they found Yevgeniy Gorlachev, 24, slumped over in the driver's seat with the engine running. He woke up when deputies asked him if he was OK, according to a Sheriff's Department news release.

Officials said a search of the vehicle turned up heroin, a syringe, a glass pipe with methamphetamine inside, and marijuana and a pipe stashed in the fuse box.

Also in the car were a stolen iPhone and other cell phones, blank checks that did not belong to Golachev, a laptop computer, iPods and stereos.

The vehicle was impounded so detectives could process the large amount of stolen property found inside, according to the news release.

Gorlachev was booked into Placer County Jail on suspicion of possession and transportation of a controlled substance, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of stolen property, possession of a hypodermic needle and committing a felony while released on his own recognizance. His bail was set at $25,000.
