MINDEN, Nev. — Three men are facing multiple felony charges in connection with the theft of ski pass vouchers worth up to $116,520 from Heavenly Ski Resort.

Tim E. Jacobsen, 21, of Minden, Nev., Mark E. Graham, 20, of Gardnerville, Nev., and Angelo Bozin, 25 of South Lake Tahoe, Calif., were all in custody after their arrests over the weekend, according to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.

The theft of 1,100 vouchers from the South Lake Tahoe ski resort was reported on March 10, according to a staff report Tuesday from the Record-Courier newspaper in Minden-Gardnerville.

The passes, valued at $120 apiece, started turning up at Kirkwood, Heavenly and Northstar — the three Tahoe ski areas owned by Vail Resorts — since the beginning of the year.

All three men are in custody for conspiracy, felony embezzlement, theft and possession of stolen property. Bail has been set at $10,000 each.

The investigation was lengthy and extensive, Sheriff’s spokeswoman, Bernadette Smith said.

They were scheduled to appear in Tahoe Township Justice Court on Tuesday.
