Sheriff’s Deputies Arrest Two in Herlong After Reno Residential Burglary


A pair of Herlong residents were arrested by Lassen County Sheriff’s Deputies Friday, after the victim of a residential burglary in Reno electronically tracked a stolen laptop to a home in Herlong.

On May 22nd, the Sheriff’s Office was contacted by a victim of a residential burglary in Reno who believed he had located an item stolen from his home.

The victim, identified by the Sheriff’s Office as Reno resident Frank Hawbolt, hired an UBER driver on May 20th for a ride from his residence to a concert in Reno.

“He was picked up in a white Chevy Tahoe, driven by an UBER driver named Reina,” explains LCSO Operations Commander, Captain Kevin Jones.

The victim returned to his home in Reno on May 21st, to discover that his residence had been burglarized and several items, including an iPad, had been taken.

Hawbolt indicated the total loss of the theft was in excess of $17,000.

“Hawbolt told our office his iPad’s location tracking was on and he tracked it to a location in Lassen County, specifically Herlong,” said Captain Jones.
