Skylor Rocky McGee, 19, of Ramona, is the first adult suspect who has been charged with burglary and receiving stolen property following a series of break-ins that occurred in Ramona while residents were at home.
McGee remains in the East Mesa Detention Facility on $50,000 bail following his arraignment last week in El Cajon Superior Court. The judge did not reduce his bail and set a preliminary hearing for July 10.
More charges may be added later. Deputy District Attorney Andrew Aguilar said McGee was “linked to (stolen) property in his bedroom” that was found by sheriff’s deputies.
The prosecutor said McGee’s first name is misspelled on the sheriff’s website of jail inmates, which resulted in an erroneous publication that said he had posted bond and was released from jail.
Aguilar said McGee’s first name is spelled Skylor, but the jail left out the y in his name. When he was first arrested, his first name was spelled Skylar.
Garrett Jackson, 18, of Ramona, was also arrested last week, but was apparently released without charges being filed, according to a DA spokesperson.
Two other men were arrested on unrelated matters and they have since been released from jail. More people and further charges could be added as the investigation continues.
