Thieves Break Into Developer’s Home And Steal Plans For Controversial Midtown Building

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Sacramento Developer Ryan Heater says he’s become the target of the thieves after building plans and e-mails were stolen from his home.

Heater filed a police report after he says a man and a woman snuck inside an open window in his home overnight.
A contractor saw the pair run away. Heater says they stole development plans and emails for his controversial “Yamanee Tower” off his dining room table.

“It definitely takes it to another level and escalates this,” Heater said. “What they took was worthless. I’m hoping that with the fingerprints, the police will catch them, and maybe that will shed some light.”

Heater’s 15-story Yamanee project would be the tallest in midtown. It would go up at the corner of J and 25th streets.
The City Council unanimously approved the plan despite an appeal by Sacramento preservationist Bill Burg.
A lawsuit has also been filed by a group called “Sacramentans for Fair Planning.”

Now this heated development debate will be assigned to a detective.

“I’m hopeful that they’re caught,” said Heater.

The burglars didn’t steal anything else. The case has been assigned to a detective.
