The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office says it arrested three people on Friday in connection with multiple car burglaries in Spanish Springs. 

Deputies say at around 1:30 a.m. they made a traffic stop on a Ford Ranger pickup near Ember Drive and Eagle Canyon Road. During that traffic stop, deputies say they found property that appeared to have been stolen.

Authorities say a second deputy found a car in the area that appeared to have been burglarized. They say the deputy contacted the owner and it was determined that some of the property discovered during the traffic stop on the Ford Ranger belonged to that burglary victim.

Deputies say they continued to search the area where they found a total of five cars that appeared to have been burglarized.

Arrested on multiple charges related to this investigation were:

• Roy Jose Ramirez, age 19

• James Robert Dressler, age 18

• Andrea Dian Isaac, age 19

Anyone living in that area of Spanish Springs who was recently a victim of a vehicle burglary or who may have information useful to this case is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division at (775) 328-3350.
