A teenager was arrested after he was seen coming out of a ransacked Placerville home where someone had defecated in the bathtub.
El Dorado County sheriff’s deputies and California Highway Patrol officers responded to the residence in the 3000 block of Lo-Hi Court in Placerville about 8 p.m. Wednesday.
The homeowners said they had locked their residence when they left for a couple hours that night. Upon their return, they noticed the lights had been turned on.
Coming out of the house was Tryston Alvarez-Ross, 19, of Placerville, according to the homeowners and the county Sheriff’s Department. The homeowners detained him until law enforcement officers arrived.

Inside the home, deputies found that the television had been turned on and that there was evidence of alcohol having been consumed. Clothing that belonged to Alvarez-Ross was on the bathroom floor next to the tub in which someone had defecated, according to a sheriff’s office news release.
The teen was wearing pants belonging to a female resident of the home, deputies said.
Alvarez-Ross had been arrested Aug. 24 on suspicion of burglary. He was released about 5 p.m. Wednesday and was out of custody only three hours before being arrested by deputies for the Lo-Hi Court break-in, the sheriff’s office said.
