While working routine patrol in Cameron Park, El Dorado County Sheriff’s deputies watched a male subject attempting to operate an ATM machine for an unordinary length of time. 

As the person drove away, the deputy noticed a vehicle code violation and conducted a traffic stop. 

The driver, Timell Brown, out of Sacramento, was found to be in possession of items indicative of identity theft, controlled substances and drug paraphernalia. The deputies also found a room key for a local hotel.

When the deputies followed up on the room key, they encountered Stefan Dobre and Donald Robyn, also out of Sacramento. 

Dobre was found to be on searchable probation and had outstanding warrants for his arrest. 

Robyn was arrested for possession of controlled substances and drug paraphernalia. 

The investigation is still on going as victims of the identify theft are being identified and contacted.
