ESCONDIDO, Calif. — Police Saturday were continuing an investigation into a probation compliance sweep by San Diego County sheriff’s deputies in Escondido Friday that recovered an estimated $20,000 in stolen goods.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Tom Ness said six deputies were involved in the day-long probation compliance operation. The purpose of the sweep was to contact early-release probationers to ensure they are complying with the terms of their jail release.

“The first location in Escondido resulted in the recovery of approximately $20,000 worth of stolen property, a large amount of which included copper wire and commercial pool equipment stolen out of Vista’s jurisdiction,” said Ness.

Ness said about $10,000 worth of stolen commercial pool equipment was returned to the pool company from which it was taken. He said the owner of the copper wire was also identified and will have their stolen goods returned.

The sheriff’s department urges anyone with information on these thefts to call 858-565-5200. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
