During remodels you put your valuables in storage, and we don’t mean the garage..

A Pebble Beach house undergoing major remodeling was burglarized twice on Sunday — once in the morning and again at night — according to the Monterey County Sheriff ’s Office.

“There were two different calls there, and two different documentations of stuff that was missing,” Cmdr. Lisa Nash said of the home located on Macomber Drive.

Since the home is being remodeled, many workers have access to the house, according to Nash, who said deputies found no evidence of forced entry.

At approximately 11:35 a.m., a Pacific Grove resident saw a small pick-up driving away from the back of his property with his ocean going kayak in the bed, police said.

He followed the truck and obtained a license number as it drove into Pebble Beach, police said, and reported the information to the police.

The driver, identified as Patrick Minerva, 19, of Carmel, was arrested by Pacific Grove police with Amy Gonzalez, 19, of Pebble Beach, and a 17-year-old juvenile female, police said, and the kayak was recovered.

It also was discovered two more people were involved and another kayak had been taken, police said.

Lindsey Crow and Petika Hilton, both 18 of Pacific Grove, were also arrested and the second kayak and paddles were recovered, police said.

Stolen Check Gang Arrested

The illicit activity started in September and happened in places from Salinas to the Peninsula, Uretsky said. Pacific Grove Police started investigating in October after a resident reported her mail, which included courtesy checks from her credit card company, stolen. One check turned up at a Pacific Grove bank and the teller recognized the name, he said.

Edith Gaskins, 39, of Seaside, one of the people arrested, allegedly opened a checking account online with one of the woman’s stolen checks.

Also arrested were Leticia Balajadia, 33, of Seaside, and Marina residents Warkiesha Pettis-Gulley, 33, and Brian Anderson, 40.

I’ve been having my mail sent to a Post Office Box for over 20 years, because of things like this. Always wondered what would happen if one of those ‘instant debt’ checks that come every month got lifted..

A Pacific Grove resident was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of using a stolen credit card to purchase almost $300 of goods from the Long’s Drugs in Carmel.

Police said Lorien Lee Weaver, 30, of Pacific Grove, bought $292.89 worth of a digital camera, miscellaneous cosmetics, clothing and other items at the store in the Crossroads Shopping Center.

Odd is that this was only reported in the Salinas Clownifornian.
