Woman accused of looting in Lilac Fire faces judge

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - A 43-year-old woman accused of looting a home in Bonsall during the Lilac Fire faced a judge Thursday.

Sacheen Silvercloud is charged with burglary during a state of emergency after deputies say they found her taking items from an evacuated home. 

A woman who lived at the evacuated home took the stand Thursday morning and went over evidence photos of some of the items allegedly taken from her residence.

Prosecutors say Silvercloud preyed on one of the evacuees as the Lilac Fire tore through Bonsall in early December destroying homes, killing horses and forcing thousands of North County residents to leave their houses.

A realtor said he spotted Silvercloud at a client's home on Disney Lane in Vista. He said Silvercloud told him she was working for an investor but then adds that he saw several items in her car that belonged in the house.

The defendant remains in jail on $50,000 bail. Her arraignment is set for March 2nd.
