Police arrest 11 with drugs, stolen property

A coordinated sweep of five different properties early Wednesday on San Juan Ridge nabbed 11 people on various charges of having drugs and stolen property, the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office said.

Officers found a late-1960s Camaro and a newer KTM Enduro, a high-end, Austrian-made motorcycle. Both had been reported stolen out of Long Beach, Sheriff’s Lt. Ron Smith said.

Grass Valley police, the California Highway Patrol and representatives from the District Attorney’s office and the county Probation Department participated in the raids that started shortly after daybreak, Smith said.

Those arrested include:

• John S. Birge, 37, of North San Juan.

• Bryon Arendell, 36, of Nevada City.

• Dale M. Lundberg, 42, of Nevada City.

• Mary Nola J. Dixon, 28, of North San Juan.

Also arrested were Patrick G. Carter, 20, Rickie Lynn Able, Manuel Lovato, Joe Thompson, Jessica Randolph, Dianna Henry and Rebecca Lundberg. More information about them was not immediately available.
