Yolo County sheriff’s investigators say they solved the recent burglaries of a Davis family’s primary and vacation homes with the arrests of two men Thursday following a monthlong investigation.

Matthew Lee Boyle of Sacramento and Ronald Steven McNair of Placerville were taken into custody following the execution of a search warrant in the 4900 block of Gardenia Way in Sacramento, where detectives recovered “thousands of dollars in property” from the two burglaries, sheriff’s spokesman Mark Persons said.

Persons said Boyle and McNair are believed to have stolen property from the victims’ primary home on Black Hawk Place in the North Davis Meadows community, including a laptop computer that led them to the owners’ vacation home in Soda Springs.

“Both homes were ransacked with the victims reporting in excess of $50,000 in personal property stolen, including electronics, furniture, fine art and sterling silver,” Persons said. The dates of the burglaries were not disclosed.

McNair remained at the Yolo County Jail on Saturday in lieu of $220,000 bail, but Boyle was no longer in custody.
