Two Grass Valley men remain in the Nevada County jail Sunday after they were both arrested at the same residence for their respective suspected involvement in two separate vehicle thefts.
Brandon Burr, 34, and Dale Oakes, 30, were arrested late Friday night at an apartment on the 300 block of Mill Street, where Grass Valley Police Department officers discovered them based on reports to the Nevada County Region Dispatch Center report.
A Friday morning caller had reported a 1991 red Honda Civic hatchback had been stolen Thursday and suspected that Burr was the perpetrator, according to GVPD activity logs.
An officer on patrol around midnight Friday located the stolen vehicle and was subsequently able to locate Burr in a nearby residence on Mill Street, said GVPD Officer Brian Hooper.
While there, officers also discovered Oakes, who was implicated in a separate vehicle theft involving a Jeep Grand Cherokee that was also reportedly stolen Thursday from a local address and discovered nearby, Hooper said.
Burr was arrested on two misdemeanor warrant charges and two felonies — vehicle theft and committing a felony while on bail, according to the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office’s website jail log.
Hooper said Oakes was allegedly found to be in possession of some heroin and was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of possession of a controlled substance paraphernalia and a felony charge for possession of a narcotic, in addition to his felony vehicular theft charge, according to the jail log.
Burr was held in lieu of $35,000 bail Sunday and Oakes in lieu of $11,000 bail, according to the jail website.
