The Sheriff’s Department have announced they believe that they have solved a wave of crimes in Santa Ramona Valley. 

They believe that three separate incidents — the fire at the Rousseau vigil and the associated murder of farmer Mac McCreedy, the attempted assassination of Governor Jay Stone, and the attempted kidnapping a week ago of a number of women and the shooting dead of the two men attempting this — were perpetrated by the same two men.

The two men the Sheriff’s Department believe to be responsible for all three incidents were named as Santiago Phillips and Lazaro Ignacio Vasquez. Both were shot dead in the last of these incidents. Until recently the two were the owners of the Alley Cats club on Shady Street, in Southside.

This dramatic announcement was made in a statement made by Under-Sheriff Azariah Brentt at a press conference earlier today.

A Santa Ramona mayoral candidate facing a raft of charges after a drunk driving incident claims it wasn't her behind the wheel, despite police audio proving otherwise.

Santa Ramona police confirmed Monday that mayoral candidate Aria de Saragosa faces charges following a hit-and-run incident which sparked a police chase through downtown earlier this month. She is charged with disturbing the peace, driving under the influence, aggravated assault and intimidation of a witness. A black GMC Yukon registered to her remains in police possession as the district attorney processes the case.

Alleging that police are mistaken in charging her, she claimed her SUV was stolen. I was at home when this supposedly happened. I called when I realized my truck was missing," she alleged.

But audio recorded by the police dispatchers contra...

Two Santa Ramona police officers caught on video savagely beating a man have quit the force in the face of an investigation.

Police are not ruling out foul play after discovering a man dead at the Full Moon Beach Monday evening.

Officers converged on the secluded nude beach and discovered the body of a single white man in his early 20s. Police on scene said it was too early to rule out murder.

The identity of the victim was not released and the investigation is ongoing.

The body represents the latest case of a fatality occurring on the beach, a popular nudist destination. Police are seeking better ways to monitor the beach while navigating the tricky legalities around public nudity, which is technically illegal in California but tolerated at Full Moon Beach.

"It's concerning that this beach is being known as a place to dump bodies," said Police Chief Sarina Jade.

Jade said the next mayor should consider installing cameras to monitor either the beach or the approaches to the area.

"It's a tricky legal issue because this is a nude beach, and recording people in the nude is obviously a violation of their...

The court had just heard disturbing allegations of the week-long nightmare of rape and violence that one of his alleged victims said she suffered at his hands.
