-A +A
Two women involved in an alleged Auburn burglary ring are facing sentences in May. Jayme Lynn Salcedo, 33, and Karissa Dawn Yeager, 27, are expected to be sentenced at 8:30 a.m. May 3 in Auburn’s Placer County Jail courtroom. On Tuesday Yeager pleaded no contest to second-degree commercial burglary and identification theft, both felonies, according to Art Campos, spokesman for the Placer County District Attorney’s Office. In March Salcedo pleaded no contest to second-degree commercial burglary, identification theft, possession of a controlled substance and burglary, Campos said. Susan McGuire, of Nevada City, Yeager’s attorney, said Yeager could receive 120 days in jail and three years formal probation. Part of her jail sentence is expected to be served out of custody. Lindsey Balcom, of Roseville, Salcedo’s attorney, was not available to comment Thursday on Salcedo’s expected sentence. Joseph William Einspahr, 31, who was arrested with Salcedo and Yeager in November, is scheduled for an early status conference at the same time May 3 in the jail courtroom. The Placer County Sheriff’s Office arrested Salcedo, Yeager, Einspahr, Stephanie Jean Cooke-Perez and Amanda Marie Jojo in November in connection to several local burglaries. Upon their arrests hundreds of thousands of dollars of jewelry and electronics were recovered, according to the Placer County Sheriff’s Office. Einspahr is currently in custody in Placer County Jail and is ineligible for bail. ~Bridget Jones
