Grass Valley man booked on burglary of dad's home


A Grass Valley construction worker in custody at the Nevada County jail was tied to a residential burglary of his father’s home after already being booked on a separate charge.

Geoff Johannsen, 28, was spotted and arrested on the Dec. 31 on a warrant for a misdemeanor charge of carrying a concealed dagger, according to Sgt. Alex Gammelgard with the Grass Valley Police Department.

During his arrest, Johannsen was allegedly found to be in position narcotics paraphernalia, Gammelgard said, though no such charges were listed against him on the jail’s booking log.

However, while in custody, an investigator working on a separate residential burglary of a home on the 1000 block of East Main Street questioned Johannsen as a suspect. That burglary of Russel Johannsen’s home — the home of the suspect’s father — involved the theft of construction tools, batteries and jewelry, Gammelgard said.

Ultimately, Geoff Johannsen was allegedly found to be in possession of his father’s missing items, Gammelgard said.

Johannsen remained in custody Thursday in lieu of $60,000 bail on two felony charges of first-degree burglary of an inhabited dwelling and receiving known stolen property in excess of $400 in value, in addition to the warranted misdemeanor.
