The Placer County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help in helping solve a rash of vehicle burglaries that occurred last month on the North Shore.

Three subjects — an older man, a younger man and a woman — are “persons of interest,” according to the sheriff’s office, in a series of auto burglaries that occurred on April 20 on Highway 89 between Tahoe City and Truckee.

On Thursday, the sheriff’s office released three surveillance images of the suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PCSO Det. John Riella with the Tahoe Investigations unit at 530-581-6325, or email

Anonymous callers can contact Placer County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-923-8191.

Tips leading to the arrest of any suspects in this case may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000, according to PCSO.
