Duo sentenced to prison for LOP burglary manhunt 

A Nevada County Superior Court judge sentenced both defendants in a south county robbery that led to an hours-long manhunt to three years and eight months in state prison.

Jordan Rose, 19, and Corey Locicero, 31, were arrested June 14 after an alleged attempt to burglarize a home.

The victim called 911 to report a burglary in progress on the 17000 block of River Ranch Road after the two men allegedly forced him to the ground, then stole keys to a vehicle and other personal property before speeding off in a pickup truck.

An investigator with the county District Attorney’s Office spotted the truck and followed it, then tried to stop the vehicle and chased the two men into DarkHorse, a golf course development community off Combie Road. The suspects then drove onto a fairway, lost control and slid off a green into a bridge abutment, before fleeing toward the neighboring Lake of the Pines gated community. Both men eventually were arrested.

Rose had pleaded no contest to robbery and reckless evasion of a peace officer in return for a stipulated sentence; his driver’s license also will be revoked.

Locicero pleaded no contest to second-degree robbery in return for a stipulated three years in state prison. He also pleaded no contest to possessing a controlled substance for sale in relation to a drug arrest Feb. 19. He will serve an additional eight months in that case.

Both men can only receive 15 percent credit for good behavior; Rose had 92 days credit for time served, and Locicero had 189 days credit.

Restitution was reserved for the victims, who did not appear in court Monday.
