PRESS RELEASE: On May 23, 2018, the Butte County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) received a call regarding a residential burglary that had just been discovered at a home off of Keefer Road in Chico. The homeowners were out of state at the time of the burglary. Numerous items, valued at more than $10,000, which included three firearms, were stolen from the home. Deputy Mariah Smith conducted an investigation, which led to an apartment building on Ralland Circle in Chico. Deputy Smith located items inside a vehicle parked outside the apartment complex that had been stolen from the victim’s residence. After further investigation, Deputy Smith located the apartment associated with the vehicle. Attempts to make contact at the apartment were unsuccessful. A search warrant was written for the vehicle and the apartment. On service of the search warrant, BCSO deputies and detectives located the suspects, identified as Cody Bentley, age 26, of Corning, and Cezarina Rose, age 31, of Gerber. During the search of the apartment and the vehicle, the three firearms belonging to the victim were recovered, along with other stolen property taken during the burglary. Also during the search, deputies located stolen property taken from at least one residential burglary, which occurred in Oregon. Bentley and Rose were arrested. Bentley was arrested for being a felon in possession of a firearm, residential burglary, and possession of stolen property.

BEHIND THE BCSO BADGE: We are excited to have a new recycling program inside the Butte County Jail, and it’s already making a difference; 30% of the trash that was being thrown out is now being recycled.

On Saturday night, June 9th, two adult males went camping on the Fall River, above Feather Falls. When one of the men woke up the next morning, he noticed his friend was not at the campsite. The man searched the area for a couple hours and was unable to locate his friend. As the man began to make his way back to the road to contact BCSO, he spoke with some hikers along the trail who had not seen his friend. BCSO deputies responded and then asked for the assistance of BCSO Search and Rescue Team. Three K9 teams and ten searchers responded. As the team was searching the area, they were approached by a hiker who said he noticed a body in the Fall River, which is about a quarter of a mile above Feather Falls. The man, identified as Christopher McClanahan, 44, of Paradise, was pronounced dead at the scene. The cause of death remains under investigation.

Please be aware of the training burns CAL FIRE Butte County Fire will be conducting next week:

Today, members from BCSO, Department of Fish and Game, Yuba County Sheriff's Office, Sutter County Sheriff's Office, and Nevada County Sheriff's Office took part in a helicopter operation training exercise.

Today, Deputy Mollath, Deputy Demmers, Deputy Stothers, Deputy Hardwick and Deputy Arredondo received the 10851 Award. The award, which is sponsored by CHP and AAA, is for their efforts in recovering stolen vehicles. These five deputies combined have made 27 arrests for possession of stolen vehicles in the last two years, and recovered numerous abandoned stolen vehicles throughout Butte County. Excellent work! 👏

BEHIND THE BCSO BADGE: We talked with a BCSO Sergeant about the common calls our Marine Unit responds to, and he also has some water safety tips to remember as we head into summer.

BCSO had a great time at the Hooked on Fishing event over the weekend!
