At approximately 6:45 this morning, deputies of the Big Bear Sheriff’s Station responded to a call for service regarding two male subjects rummaging through vehicles and taking property. The subjects were located by deputies in the area of Barton Lane and Maple Lane in Sugarloaf and were found to be in possession of property stolen from the vehicles. The suspects are identified as Matthew Nett, a 19-year-old transient, and Tyler Jackson, a 22-year-old resident of Big Bear City.
Through investigation, deputies determined a total of five vehicles were broken into. Additionally, the suspects attempted to steal one of vehicles, but were unsuccessful. Suspects, Matthew Nett and Tyler Jackson, were taken into custody and were booked for petty theft, grand theft, possession of stolen property, and attempted auto theft. Jackson was also booked on an outstanding warrant for shoplifting.
