Placerville Mayor Jailed

The Sacramento Bee is reporting that Placerville Mayor David J. Machado has been arrested on allegations of perjury and conspiracy in connection with his interest in property within the Placerville Redevelopment Zone.

Machado failed to disclose his interest in the property and tried to conceal evidence while voting to approve the zone and taking actions on behalf of the property, according to a criminal complaint issued by the El Dorado County District Attorney.

Officials of the District Attorney’s office confirmed Machado had been arrested but declined further comment except to release the complaint. When contacting the El Dorado county Jail, Machado was not in custody.
