Couple arrested outside Roseville court
An Auburn couple was arrested on a variety of charges after their images were viewed on a Placer County Sheriff’s Office Facebook post.
The department last week posted a photo of two people using a stolen credit card to purchase $450 in merchandise at a Roseville Lowe’s store. Facebook followers thought they knew who the two were, and deputies moved in to make an arrest.
Maurice Wilkes, 37, and Katherine Wilkes, 27, were arrested Tuesday after attending court in Roseville on suspicion of identity theft, possession of a controlled substance and for having a controlled substance for sale.
