• Pair booked in a series of Carmel, Big Sur, and Prunedale burglaries

    On Jan. 21, 2015, Monterey County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of a vehicle burglary: A family from Hong Kong was vacationing in our area and upon return to their vehicle from the beach discovered property missing.

    Shortly after leaving the family, the sheriff’s deputy spotted a vehicle matching the description of a suspect in the theft from PG&E trucks the week before in Carmel. The occupants of the suspect vehicle fled on foot into Garrapata Beach State Park. CHP Officers, California Fish and Game Wardens, MCSO Sheriff’s Aero Squadron volunteers along with deputies searched the area. Both suspects were found hiding in the thick brush within three hours.

    Stolen property located at the scene links the two to multiple vehicle burglaries from Prunedale, Carmel and Big Sur. The recovered stolen vehicle was stolen from Gilroy.

    Both Jeffrey Wayne McCormick, 42, of Salinas and Julie Ann McClure, 37, of Salinas were booked into the Monterey County Jail for related charges.
