Deputies Recover Stolen Property from Senders Burglary, Valley Springs

Valley Springs, CA...On 2-9-18 Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to a commercial alarm at the Senders Ace Hardware store located at 129 Highway 12 in Valley Springs. Deputies arrived around 0315 hours and discovered the perimeter fence surrounding the business had been cut and there was a broken door leading inside the business. Through review of video surveillance, deputies found that two suspects wearing dark clothing, masks and gloves had forced entry into the business and stole a number of chainsaws, clothing and power tools.







While this investigation was underway, other deputies checking the area discovered a vehicle that appeared to have been crashed into a fence near a residence in the 300 block of Highway 12, Valley Springs. Deputies contacted subjects at the residence nearby and identified items at that location which were stolen during the Senders store burglary. Deputies also found tracks leading from this residence back to the Senders store. Joshua Hawkins (age 39 of Valley Springs) was found hiding in the attic of this residence. Hawkins was arrested for several outstanding warrants. Jamie Smith (age 34 of Valley Springs) was arrested for being under the influence of a controlled substance-11550(a)H&S and child endangerment-273a(b)PC. Child Protective Services assisted with assessing the living conditions in the home where a small child was present. A third subject Phillip Schmidt (age 48 of Waterford) was also arrested for possessing methamphetamine-11377(a)H&S and possession of stolen property-496(a)PC after items from the burglary were found in the crashed vehicle that Schmidt was associated with. Phillip Schmidt was booked into the Calaveras County Jail with $50,000 bail.

Detectives obtained a search warrant for this location to recover the identified stolen property which was initially estimated to be around $4,500 worth of chainsaws, clothing and power tools.

This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information regarding this burglary please call Sheriff Dispatch (209) 754-6500 or the anonymous tip line at (209) 754-6030.

To bad they did not get some rope and crash by a old oak. They had resolution to this issue up until 1888 when the last hanging took place. Maybe its time to start again. Sends a real message out

    Number one reason for robberies is poverty. Rarely do people with funds resort to robbing people. Obviously, meth is a factor; but do you really think the tweakers would be robbing a hardware store if they weren't poor to begin with? How often do we hear of celebrities with drug problems? How often do those celebrity drug problems lead to robbing stores?

    If only we knew of a way people could make money in a rural setting...

Black cat's head found at Woodland and Penn Gulch

I hate to go off topic here.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news.
If anyone in the vicinity of Pennsylvania Gulch Road and Woodland Drive is missing a black cat. I'm afraid I found him/her severed head, in a red paper bag next to the telephone pole.
Animal Services has been called.

      Number one, it's "you're" you can go to hell if you don't believe me.
      I called the sheriff dept at 0830 a recording mind you, when I told the dispatcher she put me through to animal services, and I left a message with them since they don't open till 9 am.
      Number two, on my walk this morning I saw the wire basket thinking I could make a hanging planter of it, and I looked inside the bag. There's the head of a black cat inside of it.
      All I know is someone no longer has one of their pets anymore.
      I have 3 cats, I would want to know if someone killed it, and I think the law enforcement should know too. It's a felony, and I'm hoping who ever did it is caught.
      Like I said, the bag is still there when I went by, red bag at the bottom of the pole. Take a look for yourself if you think I'm such a douche bag for calling it in and letting people know that we have a pet killer in our neighborhood.
      Aholes like you calling people names and not even getting off your azz to see if it's true, jerk-off.

    I am sorry you had to witness the evidence of such cruelty. And to have it remain there more than 24 hours after discovery is distressing. Hopefully someone has taken care of it by now so a child going to school this morning doesn't find it. Unfortunately, your post is buried in all the tiresome comments about drugs & burglaries. It would be getting a lot more notice by animal lovers who would definitely be concerned to find out there's a cat mutilator in Murphys if it could get more attention.

Well shoot, the 🐱 head is still there as of Sunday am. My mistake, I thought the authorities might want to know of a possible crime and at least take a look, maybe when there's a couple more severed heads they'll take notice.
I hear serial killers start out with animals first, but we've never had any up here, never, ever.
