Sheriff’s Reports

A 56-year-old Ramona man was arrested Feb. 5, suspected of possessing stolen property, a stolen vehicle, and a firearm.

Sheriff’s detectives arrested Mark Ertman after serving a search warrant on his home at 2411 San Vicente Road, sheriff’s Sgt. William Hout reported.

Investigators believe the property, known as the “chicken ranch,” was used by a burglary ring operating in the East County to conceal and dismantle stolen property, Hout stated in his report. The ring is believed to be responsible for more than 20 burglaries ranging from early morning residential hot prowls to commercial burglaries targeting the Girl Scouts of America in the past year, according to the report.

Ertman, who told the Sentinel he is not guilty of any of the charges, was scheduled to be arraigned in Superior Court in El Cajon this week.

The search warrant was the result of a two-month investigation, Hout noted, adding that during the investigation detectives seized approximately $44,000 in what they believe is stolen property, firearms, explosives, stolen vehicles, methamphetamine for sale, and $8,000 in cash, and made 13 arrests. A 14th suspect was arrested in San Marcos Feb. 6, reported Lt. James Bovet with the sheriff’s Ramona station, adding that all of the suspects are Ramona residents.
