Captain Randy Peshon, El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office, promoted as new Undersheriff, replacing retiring Rich Williams.
Less than 18 months ago El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office Captain Randy Peshon received appointment to the Judicial Council Collaborative Justice Courts Advisory Committee by Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye, Chief Justice of California and Chair of the Judicial Council. Captain Peshon was nominated for this prestigious position by El Dorado County Superior Court Presiding Judge Suzanne N. Kingsbury. – See more at: http://www.inedc.com/1-6502
Earlier, using AB 109 funds allocated to the county and protected by Proposition 30, El Dorado County CCP began increasing efforts to provide inmates with support behind jail walls. “We started interviewing inmates,” said Peshon. “‘What brought you to jail? What can we do about it while you’re here?’” The CCP then began bolstering its community partnerships — such as with Lake Tahoe Community College — to provide inmates with the opportunity to receive treatment, learn job skills, and build a resume while still behind bars.
A special promotional ceremony is scheduled for Tuesday February 17th in Judge Kingsbury’s Courtroom. Normally promotional ceremonies occur in Placerville but Mike Yarbrough, Matt Underhill, and Randy Peshon have special ties to the South Lake Tahoe community.
Mike will be sworn-in as a new Sergeant, Matt as a Lieutenant, and Randy as the new Undersheriff replacing retiring Rich Williams.
Judge Kingsbury has opened her courtroom to friends, family and the public to celebrate the proceedings.
It is scheduled to begin at 4 PM.
Dee Gunther with the Roseville Police Department told Lake Tahoe News the robbery happened Jan. 24 about 8:30pm in a public parking lot. The victim told authorities he thought he was meeting people to buy a vehicle he had found on Craigslist.
Jeremy Wood, a security guard at Lakeside Inn Casino, was arrested at work. Dylan Sapsford was arrested after a traffic stop on Lake Tahoe Boulevard while he was headed toward the casinos. He was allegedly driving the vehicle used at the site of the robbery. Douglas County Jail would not provide the hometown and ages of these two.
Eric Anderson, 34, of South Lake Tahoe was arrested at his residence and booked into the South Lake Tahoe jail.
All three face robbery charges. Anderson also was arrested on a charge of cultivation of marijuana.
Gunther said it would be up to the Placer County District Attorney’s Office to file formal charges against the three when they are transferred to that jurisdiction.
The South Lake Tahoe Police a 100% corrupt – they lie and fabricate false evidence. These scumbags are the worst ot the worst. Fuck the SLTPD.
South Lake Tahoe Police will not mail a “complaint form” for Internal Affairs Investigation of their own corrupt cops!
Police corruption is a complex phenomenon, which does not readily submit to simple analysis. It is a problem that has and will continue to affect us all, whether we are civilians or law enforcement officers. Since its beginnings, may aspects of policing have changed; however, one aspect that has remained relatively unchanged is the existence of corruption. An examination of a local newspaper or any police-related publication on any given day will have an article about a police officer that got busted committing some kind of corrupt act. Police corruption has increased dramatically with the illegal cocaine trade, with officers acting alone or in-groups to steal money from dealers or distribute cocaine themselves. Continue reading

The new Carson City District Attorney Jason Woodbury has “black-mail” power over the Carson City court by knowing about various criminal” complaints on the various judges (Tatro, Wilson) and by using this said “power” Jason Woodbury “controls” these judges under the threat of being “prosecuted” for their “crimes”.
Officers with the El Dorado Sheriff’s Office, the California Highway Patrol and the South Lake Tahoe Police Department search for a suspect after he jumped a fence into a backyard Tuesday afternoon near Pinter and Carson avenues.
One person was arrested and one remains at-large after the suspects allegedly evaded police in a vehicle before abandoning it and attempting to escape on foot.
The chase began at about 3:20 p.m. Tuesday after the driver of the vehicle, a white Jeep Cherokee, allegedly refused to pull over for a traffic stop, El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office (EDSO) Sgt. Michael Seligsohn said.
The suspects abandoned the SUV in the area of Rose and Reno avenues and fled on foot. One suspect was arrested soon after, but a second jumped into a backyard and managed to escape.
Officers from the EDSO, the South Lake Tahoe Police Department and the California Highway Patrol searched the area but were unable to find the second suspect.
However, Seligsohn said authorities know who the suspect is and that he was confident they would eventually apprehend him.
The identity of both suspects was not immediately released.
The attempted traffic stop occurred after the officer identified the two men, Seligsohn said, one reportedly sought on a warrant and the second, the driver, allegedly had a suspended license.
Seligsohn said the two suspects could face charges of evading arrest. The driver could face a felony evading arrest charge after he allegedly drove at speeds between 40-to-50 mph in a residential area, passed cars and at times drove on the incoming traffic lane.
Authorities remained in the area where the vehicle was abandoned until after 4 p.m., but had not found the second suspect yet.
Emergency personnel were called for the arrested suspect, but Seligsohn said the health issues he was checked for were not directly related to his apprehension.
It was not immediately clear what the warrant for one of the suspects was for.
An outbreak of canine parvovirus, a highly infectious disease that can be deadly for dogs, has struck in in South Lake Tahoe.
The South Lake Tahoe Human Society has advised of an outbreak of Parvovirus in South Lake Tahoe. As a precaution, the South Lake Tahoe Parks Department has closed the Dog Park located on Al Tahoe Blvd. to thoroughly clean the park as a precautionary measure to prevent further outbreaks under the recommendation of the South Lake Tahoe Humane Society. The park will remain closed for 7-10 days after cleaning as recommended.
Per the Lake Tahoe Humane Society, 11 cases of Parvovirus have been seen in the past 10 days.
Per the Amercian Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), Canine parvovirus is a highly contagious viral disease that can produce a life-threatening illness. The virus attacks rapidly dividing cells in a dog’s body, most severely affecting the intestinal tract. Parvovirus also attacks the white blood cells, and when young animals are infected, the virus can damage the heart muscle and cause lifelong cardiac problems. The general symptoms of parvovirus are lethargy, severe vomiting, loss of appetite and bloody, foul-smelling diarrhea that can lead to life-threatening dehydration.

Militarization of the local police department. The South Lake Tahoe Police are not happy with just Hummer’s and other vehicles like seen at the very end. They need to buy surplus military equipment to “Protect and Serve” the public. How long until this bastard is setting at a checkpoint? Ramming your neighbors house? Fighting protesters?
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE — Former South Lake Tahoe police officer John “Johnny” Poland, 46, is projected to be released from custody Feb. 22 and is currently serving the last weeks of his sentence under the custody of a halfway house, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP).
Poland was sentenced to 18 months in federal prison after reaching an agreement with prosecutors and pleading guilty to a single count of obstruction of an official proceeding.
In addition to the obstruction charge, Poland was originally indicted by a federal grand jury on three counts of tampering with a witness, victim or informant. He faced as many as 20 years in a federal prison for each count.
Poland was committed to the Federal Correctional Institution in Tucson, Arizona on Nov. 6 2013, according to Melinda Clark of the BOP. He served time there until he was transferred to the custody of a halfway house on Nov. 6.
Poland is projected to be released from custody nearly 16 months after he was committed at the prison. Clark could not comment on Poland’s case specifically, but said projected release dates generally factor in any time credit earned.
Poland was taken into custody in January 2013 after an FBI investigation determined he gave information about police operations on several occasions to a woman, referred to in the report as VC, with whom he had an ongoing sexual relationship, according to court documents. The woman was reportedly the girlfriend of a suspected gang member and drug trafficker.
In his plea agreement, filed in federal court on May 22, 2013, Poland agreed that the factual summary that prosecutors presented, based on the FBI investigation, accurately described his criminal activity.
The summary detailed instances during which he gave information about upcoming search warrants to people familiar with VC, coached VC on how to respond to investigators’ questions, encouraged her to delete information from her phone and told her to say she didn’t know about her boyfriend’s alleged drug-dealing.
The summary also stated it had statements from two women who said they voluntarily engaged in sex acts with Poland when they were 17-year-old students at South Tahoe High School while he was a school resources officer between 2003 and 2006.
In a statement to Federal Judge Kimberly J. Mueller in August 2013, Poland stated he “made very serious mistakes in judgment and discretion, products of very poor thinking and with a lack of awareness of the consequences of my conduct. I admit that I am guilty of the crime as charged, obstruction of justice.”
“I am partially glad this happened and stopped my behavior,” he added.
He later stated, “first of all, the atmosphere where I worked as a South Lake Tahoe Police Officer had many people that acted in the way I did. It was an office that at times almost encouraged the behavior I displayed, and it also often caused extreme friction and stress amongst the officers,” he stated.
“As I stated moments ago, my police force itself was a place where ethics and morality often were dispensed with, and some corruption of the justice process occurred.”
“As a result of this case, I have genuinely lost everything that I have worked my while for [sic]. I have lost my job, my pension, all simple assets that I ever had,” he said toward the end of his statement.
South Lake Tahoe Police Chief Brian Uhler said Thursday he had no comment for the excuses Poland made for his actions. He added that Poland’s case reflected unfavorably on the department and put them in a difficult situation. Furthermore, he said he wanted to put the situation behind and move forward and that he did not wish any harm onto Poland.
Poland’s attorney, Mark Reichel, described the case against his client as a political vendetta that used him as a scapegoat. He added that the prosecution did not have a strong case against him.
About Poland’s time in custody, Reichel said Poland is a motivated and strong person who always lands on his feet and that moving forward he would have to rebuild his life.
He said he had not been in contact with Poland recently, but that he was happy he was getting out.
The city has not responded to the outcry from the public about the miscarriage of justice and failure to defend our elders in South Lake Tahoe.
In fact they have ignored them. This is not about revenge or anger..this is about justice, Justice for Jerry.
I have the officers involved names and badge numbers but we will save them for court and a jury trial. We have the police report and the complaint filed with the city to present. Look over the whole blog and let your conscious speak for itself. Jerry is still recovering from his injuries and is looking to sell his hotel and leave the city as he is no longer safe with the police refusing to uphold the law and criminals who are protected for their violent crimes by being police informants. The informant denied he was an informant and that he had done any wrong doing.
He made slanderous attacks at my wife and Jerry. We offered to present any proofs he had but of course he never responded. You can see the back and forth below these blogs in the comments section. We will be posting the police report as well as the police record admitting a battery but no arrest. We still offer to post any response from anyone who has information which contradicts this blog. We have found plenty of proof and supporting evidence for these claims and welcome any challengers including the city to respond. We will post their responses.
Stay tuned for the police report and other vital documents.

How does Elder abuse fly with you? How does conspiracy within the South Lake Tahoe Police department sit with you? Jerry Morey is a seventy-four year old South Lake Tahoe Hotel owner who has been denied city services and singled out for discrimination and retaliation for demanding his rights be protected. Before we dive into this over the next few days lets take a look of the results of his assault and battery which the police say is not eve a crime and 911 claimed was not an emergency! (dispatch is related to officers)
Does anybody think for one second that this is not a crime? Would the SLTPD and City deny this was a crime had it happened to say Jerry Birdwell the ex city Mayor who also owns a hotel in town? Would they have denied him his rights had poor Jerry been a rich man? Had he had connections in th city government? Had he not tried to collect rent from a police informant? Why would the South Lake Tahoe Police arrest his abuser, drive him across the street and let him go? If I or you had done this to Jerry would Jerry be denied justice?
Lets hear from Jerry himself what has happened.
“I am the owner and manager of Tahoe Lakeside Lodge in South Lake Tahoe, California and I had tenants staying in Building 1 Unit 2 that came to me saying they were going to move out since they had no heat or electricity in their unit and that they had two children who were freezing cold due to the breaker being shut off by the tenant Mark Supica staying next door to them in Building 1 Unit 1.
The breaker that controls the electricity for Building 1 is located in Unit 1 of that building. So I went over to Supica’s unit and knocked on his door. Supica answered and I politely asked if I could enter his unit to reset the breaker since the tenants next door had no heat or electricity. Supica refused to let me reset the breaker, so I asked if he would reset the breaker so Building 1 would have heat and electricity and so the tenants next door to Supica would not freeze and leave the hotel Supica once again refused to reset the breaker or to allow me to reset the breaker and he started yelling at me.

Police sergeant arrested Tahoe Daily Tribune
Adam Jensen Friday, April 24, 2009
[Excerpts] A veteran South Lake Tahoe police officer has been placed on administrative leave after being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence last week.
A Nevada Highway Patrol officer stopped Sgt. Jeff Reagan in Carson City at about 4:10 a.m. on April 16… driving 54 mph in a 35 mph zone…
During the stop, the officer noticed an “obvious” odor of alcohol coming Reagan and administered three field sobriety tests… Reagan failed all three and was booked into Carson City Detention Facility… Reagan —a sergeant in the police department’s detective division — told Nevada Highway Patrol officers he was returning from a relative’s house east of Carson City at the time of the traffic stop… Police Chief Terry Daniels placed Reagan on administrative leave following his arrest.
Daniels has also launched an internal affairs investigation into the matter… Reagan’s arrest was not his first involving alcohol. Douglas County Sheriff’s deputies said they smelled alcohol on Reagan when they responded to an August 2005 incident at the South Lake Tahoe police officer’s Minden home, according to newspaper articles published at the time. Deputies responded to the home on Aug. 9 after Reagan’s wife and son accused him of pushing her out the back door with such force that she landed on the lawn 10 feet away, according to the articles.
Reagan was charged with domestic battery following the incident, but the charges were dropped in November 2005. East Fork Justice Jim EnEarl dismissed the charge after Reagan’s wife said she was partially responsible for the incident and felt pressured by sheriff’s deputies to make her initial statements.
At the time, EnEarl said the charge was dropped because the state was unable to prove the allegations. EnEarl had initially ordered Reagan to abstain from the use or possession alcohol following his August 2005 arrest, but the order was lifted when the charge was dismissed…
