The owner of an unoccupied home on Clipper Gap Road in Applegate called the Placer County Sheriff's Office at 8:50 a.m. to report that three people were on the property of the home he recently inherited. In front of the residence, deputies found a trailer that turned out to be filled with property that had been taken from the home, according to a Sheriff's Office news release.

They also saw three suspects breaking windows and sliding doors of the house with a golf club. Damage to the windows and doors was estimated at $4,000, officials said.

Arrested were Zachary Forest Lackett, (pictured, top row, left) 20, and Zeth Andrew Stuart (top center), 23, both of North Highlands, and Christopher Elliott Walker (top right), 18, of Sacramento. All three were booked into Placer County Jail on suspicion of burglary, conspiracy to commit a crime and vandalism.

The second incident occurred at 3:10 p.m. as a deputy was checking on an unoccupied home in the 17000 block of Placer Hills Road that had recently been burglarized.

Upon arrival, the deputy saw a car backed into the driveway of the residence and individuals loading property into the vehicle.

Arrested were Theresa Lynette Schnackel (pictured, bottom row, left), 45, of Rio Linda, and Dennis Shane Dorman (bottom center), 45, and Kristen Karen Jacobs (bottom right), 31, both of North Highlands.

All three were booked into Placer County Jail on suspicion of burglary and conspiracy. In addition, Schnackel is accused of possessing a controlled substance, methamphetamine, concentrated cannabis and paraphernalia, as well as violating probation. Dorman also is accused of possessing methamphetamine and paraphernalia, and Jacobs, of possessing a controlled substance.
