Rash of buglaries in North Sierra Highway area

– Inyo County Sheriff’s Office

Bishop has had a string of burglaries recently in the North Sierra Highway area, and we are asking for the public’s assistance:


• On March 20th a local resident reported a lock being cut off a storage shed at the Meadow Lakes Storage facility – 2356 North Sierra Highway.

• On March 24th the Inyo County Sheriff’s Office took a report of a burglary at a See Vee Lane property (very close to North Sierra Highway); the house had been broken into and three racing bicycles were stolen.

• On March 25th at about 2:00AM, Wave Rave Snowboard Store on North Sierra Highway was broken into, and approximately $1,000 in clothing was stolen.

Please remember to lock your doors, and be mindful of any suspicious activity. If anything suspicious is noticed please contact the Sheriff’s Office at 760-878-0383 – or simply dial 911.

Extra patrols are taking place in the North Sierra Highway area. At this point there are no leads – all illegal activity has been detected by residents and business owners after the intruder or intruders have committed the crimes. If anyone has any tips, please call 760-878-0383, or you can fill out the “Report a Crime” form located at: http://www.inyocounty.us/so/report-crime/

    Trouble ; Agreed…..What these “kids” need is “thief re-hab”,not jail time.Or just maybe all they need is “education”…..maybe they don’t know burglary and theft is a crime,and all it will take is someone letting them breaking into homes and business’ is wrong,followed by giving them a big hug.If that don’t work,it’s “obvious” they can’t find work here in Inyo County to be doing what they’re doing.Maybe the business owners should offer them a job.But jail time…..punishment ?….NO WAY !!!

      If they are caught — give them probation and a scholarship conditioned on getting at least a C average in school. If they don’t get the grade then they go to jail.

        Thats right Ken, give them more of a chance, support and encourage them to be a productive citizen.. What I see is the District Attorneys acting like pacman (consuming everything in front of them), and once released from incarceration what steps do public funds or “representatives of the people” do to help them back in society? Once “black-listed” some are never accepted back in society, what effect does our justice system have on our Brothers and Sisters that pay their debt to society (jail) and then find themselves never able to integrate back into society..?. The good thing is if you make it to a status of power or economic relevance, you don’t have to worry about the pesky laws, just pay them, (Two Tier Justice system), since that money rejuvenation is a primary function in all #Injustice

        I could go with that…provided it includes restitution too. While I agree jail/prison may do more harm than good for a young, minor criminal, we can’t let them have no repercussions at all. That would encourage the ‘bad guys’ to use first time offenders to do their dirty work.

        Probation, tied to good grades, and restitution works for me.

          sugarmagnolia: The restitution is not a bad idea if appropriate — damaged or stolen property etc. — but turing a person into a productive member of society has greater benefits for the society.

          Going to school and succeeding is not easy to do. Some would opt for jail.

        Ken; Or we could always go with a plan B,maybe after conviction,for those that burglarize business’ and homes that might not succeed in Collage with the scholarship given to them.Maybe we should set them up in a nice place to live,rent free for a year.And get them a reliable vehicle to drive to and from the job that is given to them after their court-date and conviction.And a little bit of spending money too,to get them back on their feet.

        • Really? March 31, 2015 at 7:20 pm #

          So what you’re saying is encourage them to commit crimes because, we the people will get them a car and a place to live for a year? And spending money, why work?? They’re capable of going to find a job, and work hard to get a car and a place to live. We don’t need to support them. If their parents would have given tough love from the beginning, we wouldn’t be dealing with criminals at 18. Children/young adults not being productive citizens in our communities. They need to learn and if jail or probation is the best option, then so be it!

            I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess Low-Inyos post was sarcastic. (I hope!)

      • Trouble March 31, 2015 at 7:24 pm #

        Hey ken, I want to touch on that. I hope everybody realizes Inyo and Mono has what I believe is one of the cheapest college education systems in the state. It only requires a C average. Community College is free, and the University of Nevada offers in state rates as low as 4200 a year to Inyo and Mono County Students. A kid could get a college education for as little as $8400.00 dollars if they wanted to, from what I understand.

    Makes you wondering what is really going on in this county, I think it is only the tip of the Ice berg. What I am wondering is when will all these Bad Actors will pay for their crimes, I think they should have wear signs around their necks saying I am thief, and quit hiding behind the Lawyers.
