A Sacramento man was arrested by Placer County Sheriff’s deputies Thursday morning when he was found passed out in his car, which was full of stolen property. Deputies also found a syringe on the floor, a meth pipe on the man’s lap and marijuana inside the fuse box of the engine compartment.
Deputies were called to the Walgreen’s parking lot on Douglas Blvd. in Granite Bay at 11:40 a.m. by a concerned citizen. When deputies arrived, they found Yevgeniy Gorlachev slumped over in the driver’s seat with the engine running. When a deputy asked the man if he was okay, the man woke up.
A search of the vehicle revealed heroin, a syringe, a glass pipe with methamphetamine inside, and the marijuana and pipe stashed in the fuse box. Also in the car were a stolen iPhone and other cell phones, blank checks that did not belong to Gorlachev, a laptop computer, iPods and stereos. The vehicle was impounded so detectives could process the large amount of stolen property inside.
Gorlachev, 24, was arrested and transported to the Placer County Jail in Auburn. He was booked on charges of possession and transportation of a controlled substance (heroin), possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of stolen property, possession of hypodermic needle and for committing a felony while released on his own recognizance. His bail is set at $25,000.
