Press Release


The Tuolumne County Sheriffs Office announced the arrest of a Concord man and a Pittburg female on multiple charges including burglary and drugs.

The sheriffs office is reporting they responded to a report of a burglary on Shell Road in Jamestown.

The homeowner reported he heard from a friend that someone was at his home. When deputies arrived, they found 20-year-old Ronnie Conway of Concord in a Jeep Laredo inside the garage of the home. Conway claimed the homeowner gave him permission to be in the home.

Deputies could see drug paraphernalia inside Conway’s Jeep and conducted a search. 33-year-old Leonor Crocker of Pittsburg was found hiding underneath a pile of clothing in the back seat and gave deputies a fake name.

A records check revealed that Crocker had outstanding warrants for burglary and drugs. Additionally methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, (MDMA) ecstasy pills, a collapsible baton, notary stamp, and mail addressed to various people were found inside the Jeep.

A door leading to the inside of the home was found open and lights were on. Deputies are conducting follow up with the homeowner to see if any property is missing.

Conway and Crocker were arrested and booked into the Tuolumne County Jail.
