Citrus Heights police arrest suspected major pot dealer


This was more than a marijuana seizure. It was a marijuana haul.

The Citrus Heights Police Department said a special enforcement team has recovered at least 858 pounds of marijuana, $464,850 in cash, seven firearms, high capacity magazines and ammunition during an ongoing investigation. The team includes Citrus Heights and Folsom police officers as well as Sacramento County probation officers,

The seizures began April 9 when the enforcement team pulled over a car driven by Jeremy Zahn on Oak Avenue. Zahn, 31, was on post-release community supervision (PRCS).

Detectives documented finding 48 pounds of marijuana packaged for sale in the back seat of Zahn's car. Zahn was arrested for transportation of marijuana, possession of marijuana for sale and violation of his PRCS conditions, police said. He was booked into Sacramento County Jail.

Carmichael man found guilty of teen's murder in 1980

Carmichael man found guilty of teen's murder in 1980


SACRAMENTO - A Placerville jury has convicted a Carmichael man of murdering a gas station attendant 34 years ago.

Jurors also found Andrew Sanford, 52, guilty of special circumstances in the Aug. 15, 1980 death of Richard Swanson. According to court testimony, Swanson, 16, was found beaten, wrapped in duct tape and left to suffocate to death at the South Y gas station in South Lake Tahoe where he was employed.

El Dorado County District Attorney' s Office investigator and spokesperson Dave Stevenson said Sanford had a friend who worked at the station. Sanford would hang out there, becoming familiar with who worked there and where money was kept.

After police found Swanson dead in a back room of the station, they also learned $761.02 in cash was gone from the cash register, according to Stevenson.

Jurors were told Sanford moved from South Lake Tahoe that same day.

El Dorado County supervisor goes on trial for fraud, perjury


PLACERVILLE, Calif. - Nearly a year after his arrest on fraud, perjury and public corruption charges, El Dorado County Supervisor Ray Nutting is finally getting his day in court.

The trial, expected to last five weeks, began Tuesday in the historic courthouse in downtown Placerville.

Nutting, 54, faces four felony counts stemming from roughly $70,000 in state grants he was awarded to clear brush on his private property.

An additional seven misdemeanors were added following Nutting's arrest last May when prosecutors said he illegally borrowed his $55,000 bail from county contractors and employees.

Prosecutors will try to prove Nutting committed fraud by submitting a $27,000 invoice from Nutting Brush Clearing while claiming he did none of the work himself, and that he falsified the date the work was completed to comply with CalFire regulations.
