Garrido targeted 3 other victims in South Lake Tahoe

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, NV - Court documents released by the El Dorado County District Attorney's Office include a map of where several of Phillip Garrido's attacks happened. Before Jaycee Dugard, Garrido had four other known victims.

Police say Garrido's first victim was a 14-year-old girl he raped and kidnapped in Antioch on April 14, 1972. She was afraid to take the stand to testify against her attacker.

The three rape and kidnapping incidents that followed took place in South Lake Tahoe.

Rhe second victim was raped and kidnapped on  June 7, 1976, in South Lake Tahoe. Police say Garrido talked the 19 year old into his car, handcuffed her, and then assaulted her.

VIDEO: Court documents reveal new information on Garrido victims

PLACERVILLE, CA - Two videos taken by Phillip and Nancy Garrido of children in public places were among documents released Tuesday by the El Dorado County Attorney's Office.

District Attorney Vern Pierson and St. Sen. Ted Gaines, R-Fair Oaks, are mounting an effort to close loopholes in California law and parole procedures that allowed convicted sex offender Phillip Garrido to be granted early parole and avoid detection in the Jaycee Dugard kidnapping investigation. Dugard was abducted from her South Lake Tahoe neighborhood in 1991 when she was 10. She was found to have been living in the Garridos' Antioch backyard for the next 18 years.

Last month, the Garridos were sentenced to life in prison terms for Dugard's kidnapping, imprisonment and molestation.

Plane aborts takeoff on Placerville airport runway

PLACERVILLE, CA - A pilot decided not to take off from Placerville Airport after getting off the ground for a little bit.

CalFire Officer Derek Evans said the initial report was of a small engine plane crash.

El Dorado County sheriff's spokesman Bryan Golmitz said the airplane got off the ground slightly then decided it wouldn't fly so aborted takeoff.

The pilot was the only one on board and did not sustain any injuries, Golmitz said. The pilot was transported to the hospital as a precaution.

The sheriff's department will forward the case to the FAA and the NTSB.

Golmitz said the plane does not appear to have sustained any significant damage.
