KINGS BEACH, Calif. — A Northern California man is being held on $200,000 bail for his alleged role in a recent series of North Lake Tahoe commercial burglaries.
Placer County Sheriff’s Office deputies on Wednesday arrested Jason Wayne Woodral, 35, of Merced, Calif., on suspicion of eight counts of burglary, according to a statement.
Early Wednesday, deputies from the PCSO North Tahoe station responded to the Waters of Tahoe Laundromat at 8764 Lake Tahoe Blvd. in Kings Beach for a reported burglary in progress, law enforcement said.
Woodral fled but was caught in a residential area of Kings Beach. He was arrested and later booked at the Placer County Jail in Auburn.
According to PCSO, Woodral is believed to be responsible for several burglaries at businesses in Kings Beach, including the Kings Beach Car Wash, Tahoe Cutting Company and Tahoe Pilates Studio.
Woodral stole an unidentified amount of cash and property, PCSO Sgt. Dave Hunt said Thursday.
“Based on his method of operation, he committed these crimes ... through his owns admissions and through evidence that we collected,” Hunt said.
Woodral also had an outstanding arrest warrant stemming from a burglary committed in Merced in 2009, according to PCSO.
It’s unknown if he has an attorney.
