Truckee police say they've recovered about $70,000 worth of stolen items. The total value of all items taken is over $125,000.

Truckee police have arrested four brothers after a months-long investigation into alleged bicycle thefts that ranged into Placer County and Nevada, and involved over $125,000 in stolen items, authorities said.

Jesus Gallardo Macias, 25; Juan Carlos Gallardo Macias, 29; Martin Gallardo Macias, 27; and Sergio Gallardo Macias, 23, all face charges of receipt of known stolen property and criminal conspiracy. All the men, except Jesus Gallardo Macias, also face a grand theft charge, jail records state.

Arrested Sunday on Brockway Road in Truckee, the San Francisco residents remained in jail Tuesday afternoon, Aug. 22, on $750,000 in bond, records state.

“I am exceptionally proud of our officers for their diligence and continued efforts in this investigation,” Truckee Police Chief Rob Leftwich said in a release. “I am very appreciative of the support and collaboration that the Placer County Sheriff’s Office provided.”
