Tahoe off-roader cited

A 25-year-old Meyers man was cited on suspicion of operating an off-road vehicle in a manner likely to cause unnecessary damage to natural resources, after a complaint of illegal firewood cutting by the U.S. Forest Service.

A deputy from the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office responded to the complaint at 6:48 p.m. May 31 and found the man and two male companions cutting a downed tree into sections and loading them into a truck near San Diego Street and East San Bernardino Avenue in Meyers, according to a deputy’s report.

The man was cited on suspicion of damaging vegetation with the vehicle, as well as for not having the truck properly registered, according to the report.

The incident also was forwarded to the Forest Service for follow-up regarding the tree cutting.

Forest Service signs notifying people of regulations against cutting firewood are visible in the area, according to the report.
