Auburn PD Reports Arrests

Auburn Police report two arrests involving people allegedly  taking or trying to take items that didn’t  belong to them. Sergeant Michael Garlock says in the first case last Sunday (Sept. 29)  , Auburn Police Officers responded to Lincoln Way and Cherry Avenue for a report of two male subjects pulling on the doors to some of the closed businesses in the area. Officers located and arrested 29 year old James Wisecarver for public intoxication.

The officers took his backpack and its contents and stored them for safe keeping until Wisecarver could be released from jail.  Later that day , Auburn police officers investigated a burglary to a business called Uptown Properties located in the 100 block of Magnolia Avenue.  Sgt. Garlock reports, apparently the suspect managed to climb through a window and steal some items out of the business. Wisecarver’s backpack contained some of the stolen property from Uptown Properties. Wisecarver, who was still in custody, was arrested for burglary and he remains in the Placer County Jail.

In another incident  Monday (Oct 1)  Auburn police officers responded to the 100 block of Sacramento Street to investigate an individual, later identified as 22 year old David Cotter, who was reportedly getting into several parked vehicles. Once inside the vehicles, Cotter used a key in the ignition in an attempt to start the vehicles. Cotter did not own or have permission to be in any of the vehicles in which he was attempting to start. Although the key Cotter was in possession of was for the same make of the vehicles that he  entered, the key did not actually belong to any of the vehicles. Cotter was arrested for attempted auto theft and booked into the Placer County Jail.
