Shane Kirwin Eisenhart, 27, faces four felony charges, while co-defendant Tyler Ray Ricksecker, 30, has been charged with two, according to court records.
Sheriff's Capt. Rick Ells said the trail leading to the two men began with a Nov. 28 burglary in the 31000 block of All View Drive, in which numerous antique items were reportedly taken.
On Dec. 4, Ells said, Detective Lance Beyerle took a burglary report from the unidentified victim, who said the missing items included a wooden box containing
valuable silverware. The victim's debit card was also reportedly stolen and subsequently used, Ells said.
A solution to the crime began to take shape two days later, when Deputies Mike Chavez and Ron Miller visited Eisenhart's home, in the 31700 block of Valley View Drive, to perform a probation compliance check for an unspecified prior offense.
In the home, Ells said, the deputies found guns, which Eisenhart, as a convicted felon, is not legally entitled to possess.
Ells said the deputies also spied a mahogany box containing silverware, and an antique camera was reportedly seen in Eisenhart's car. They also developed
information, Ells said, that Ricksecker might also have been involved in the All View burglary.
Eisenhart was booked at Central Detention Center in San Bernardino for outstanding warrants and for being a felon in possession of a firearm, Ells said. Jail records show an additional booking charge, that of being a prohibited
person in possession of ammunition.
The following day, he said, the deputies, armed with a search warrant, revisited Eisenhart's home. With Eisenhart in custody, they had to force their way in, and recovered the stolen camera and silverware box.
On Dec. 8, Ells said, Deputies Eric Dyberg, Robert Maestas and Rob Scribner, equipped with a second search warrant, went to Ricksecker's residence, in the
31000 block of Hilltop Boulevard. There, he said, they found unspecified paperwork belonging to the All View burglary victim.
Ells said the deputies also found evidence that Ricksecker, along with an accomplice, had attempted identity theft using the burglary victim's personal
information. Unspecified items taken in the All View burglary were also reportedly found, Ells said.
Ricksecker was booked at Central Detention Center on Dec. 8 for burglary, grand theft and receiving stolen property. On Dec. 11 the district attorney's
office filed felony charges of burglary and receiving stolen property against him.
He was arraigned from jail on Tuesday and pleaded not guilty to all charges, court records say. His pre-preliminary hearing was scheduled for next Tuesday, with his preliminary hearing to follow two days later. Meanwhile, he remained in custody on Tuesday in lieu of $200,000 bail.
On Dec. 11, court records say, Eisenhart was arraigned on the charges for which he was arrested, as well as burglary and receiving stolen property charges
related to the All View break-in. He pleaded not guilty on all counts. His pre-preliminary hearing was set for today and his preliminary hearing was scheduled for Dec. 24.
Eisenhart also remained behind bars on Tuesday, on a total of $285,000 in bail, according to jail records.
