Friday, March 21 — A Doyle man was arrested after an investigation into a burglary of a South County business in the early morning of Monday, March 17.
Daniel Shaw, 22, was booked into the Lassen County Jail on charges of burglary and conspiracy to commit a crime. In addition, a charge of conspiracy to commit a crime will be filed with the district attorney’s office on Kyle Olmstead, 24, also of Doyle.
According to a press release from the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office, at approximately 5:29 a.m. a deputy was dispatched to a report of a burglary at the Doyle Payless.
During a walkthrough of the store, the deputy saw a window had been broken and appeared to have been the primary means of entry into the store.
Several areas inside the business had been ransacked and 11 cartons of cigarettes and a handheld safe had been taken, but the items were later located and recovered.
The investigation led law enforcement to question Olmstead and Shaw.
It was determined Shaw allegedly broke into the store and later met up with Olmstead.
The Lassen County Sheriff’s Office expresses its gratitude to the California Highway Patrol officer who responded to assist in the investigation
