A Quincy man has been arrested in connection with a string of break-in thefts from parked cars in the greater Quincy area over the past several weeks.

Victor Rugh, 20, of Quincy, was arrested Wednesday, April 27.

Plumas County Sheriff’s Investigator Bill Elliott said Rugh was one of four people involved in the crimes.

Two people are high school-age minors. The other adult was charged with a misdemeanor.

Elliott said the sheriff’s office uncovered quite a large cache of stolen items.

“We need folks to come forward and help us identify their property,” Elliott said.

A Yuba City man was charged with murder Saturday after a dead body was discovered in his motor home Friday night in Plumas County.

Kingsley drew the attention of a Forest Service officer who was on routine patrol for the start of the fishing season.

According to Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood, Kingsley was "behaving bizarrely" before the officer discovered a freshly dug grave.
