On 7-9-15, between 0300 and 0500, deputies from the Headquarters Substation, as well as the Three Rivers Resident Deputy, responded to two reports of burglaries on Sierra Drive in Three Rivers.

The first business reported that the suspect(s) entered through an open window and removed cash from the business.

The alarm at the second business was set off, and when Deputies arrived they found the front window of the business was smashed. Based on leads developing during the course of the investigation, it was discovered that multiple individuals had been partying in the area of the businesses, which led to the identification and subsequent arrest of one of the individuals – Joshua Berdgoll. The owner of the business was located and could not yet determine what had been taken from the business.

Resident Deputy Frick followed up with the suspect identified as Josh, and also identified and located Dave Weymouth. As a result of Deputy Frick’s investigation, both subjects were booked for burglary charges in relation to both crimes. They also implicated a Male Juvenile in the burglaries, who has not yet been located.
