Preliminary hearing set in burglary case

By Neal Putnam

A July 10 preliminary hearing is set for Skylor Rocky McGee, who is charged with one count of burglary and one count of receiving stolen property.

McGee, 19, of Ramona, pleaded not guilty to the charges in El Cajon Superior Court. Judge Charles Ervin reduced the bail and he remains free.

More charges could be added later, according to Deputy District Attorney Andrew Aguilar, who said McGee was “linked to (stolen) property in his bedroom” that was found by sheriff’s deputies.

Garrett Jackson, 18, of Ramona, was also arrested June 23, but was apparently released without charges being filed, according to a DA spokesperson.

Two other men were arrested that day on unrelated matters and they have since been released from jail. More people and further charges could be added as the investigation continues.

    Lock and load, residents of Ramona / Estates. Seems that no one has been arrested and no one is in jail for committing the "hot prowls". It must be ok to burglarize your neighbors homes, fence stolen property, and deal drugs. On the up side, someone will still get to be the first to shoot and kill one of these local punks.

      I agree. The parents of these punks, just keep bailing them out.

        However, I don't believe this Kid is out of Jail. According to the Sheriff's web page, Who Is In Jail, they have this kid's name spelled Sklor not Skylor. I think Ramona Sentential has it wrong.

          You are correct.
          The reporter rechecked information he had received. Skylor McGee is still in jail and bail was not reduced. He is in East Mesa Detention Facility, according to the prosecutor, and bail is $50,000.
          His first name is misspelled as Sklor in the "Who's in Jail?"
          Thank you so much for commenting. The reporter, whose article is based on incorrect information he received from the court, is rewriting his article and it will be posted as soon as possible. It is, regrettably, too late to change what is in this week's paper, which went to press yesterday because of the holiday. We will publish a correction in next week's newspaper.
          Again, thank you.

  2. Facts

    This is not the case. The Sentinel does not have it's facts straight. Someone should do their homework prior to this going to print. Skylor McGee is still and has been in jail since June 23rd and the judge did not reduce his bail.
