Nevada County Sheriff’s Office


• A caller on the 10000 block of Combie Road reported at 4:01 p.m. that several items had been stolen from his truck while it was parked at Long’s Drugs.

• At 11:45 p.m., a caller on the 19600 block of Hansen Lane reported that she thought a van had just crashed in her driveway, but that she was too afraid to go outside and check herself. California Highway Patrol and sheriff’s officers responded, and the driver was taken to a hospital.

• Donald Lee McGuckin, 38, of Nevada City, was arrested on suspicion of grand theft, as well as two counts of possession of stolen property, two counts of committing a felony while out on bail and two counts of burglary.

According to the sheriff’s office, the most recent arrest was due to an on-going investigation into several commercial and residential burglaries around Nevada County. Grass Valley police searched a storage facility in Penn Valley, and sheriff’s investigators again searched McGuckin’s home, where they found property that had reportedly been stolen from businesses such as the Northern Queen Inn and the Miners Clinic in Nevada City.
