A rash of early Saturday morning commercial burglaries resulted in a Sacramento man being detained after a vehicle matching the description of that involved was found behind the former Carson Valley Chevrolet building.
Andrey Yakimov, 34, was taken into custody around 8 a.m. on a Nevada State Police contempt warrant just two hours after deputies responded to Pacific Gas for a break-in. Deputies were alerted by an owner who saw someone “sneaking around” inside the Gardnerville gas station and a Prius parked there.
Douglas County investigators were working on a series of burglaries in Carson Valley Plaza as the call at Pacific Gas came in around 6 a.m.
In both instances someone entered the business through the roof, something authorities in California reported Yakimov has done several times.
Alpine County authorities are also investigating a commercial burglary.
Yakimov was reportedly wearing an ankle monitor when he was taken into custody. He is being held on $81,152 bail on three counts of commercial burglary and possession of a controlled substance. He is scheduled to appear in East Fork Justice Court on Wednesday.
