Deputies and Victim Utilize Surveillance Photos to Capture Thieves and Recover Property Fresno County Sheriff’s deputies have arrested 46 year old Cory Scow of Friant and 54 year old Bryan Gammell of Oakhurst. Both have been booked into the Fresno County Jail on multiple felony charges related to burglary, possession of stolen property and being felons prohibited from possessing guns or ammunition. On Monday, March 19th, a person reported to the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office that on Sunday a burglary occurred on their property along the 30000 block of Burrough Valley Road in Tollhouse. The victim claimed a loss of $40,000 worth of items, including motorcycles, trailers, ammunition and construction tools. The victim checked a trail camera, which was setup on the property and found that it had snapped of the suspects and their vehicle. Deputies met with the victim, reviewed the photos and were able to identify Cory Scow and Bryan Gammell as the suspects. Deputies went in search of the two men by visiting a home on the 17000 block of N. Waldby Ave. in Friant. On the way to the home, a deputy passed a white SUV matching the one shown in the surveillance photo. The deputy made a traffic stop on the vehicle being driven by Cory Scow.

It's National Ag Day. Thank you to all the ranchers and growers across the United States who work hard to put food on our tables everyday. A special thanks goes out to our own farmers in Fresno County. According to the Fresno County Farm Bureau, farmers here raise more than 350 different crops, contributing directly more than $5.6 billion to the California economy and supporting 20 percent of all jobs in the Fresno area. Many of the county’s crops are not grown commercially anywhere else in the nation. Every $1 generated on the farm produces another $3.50 in the local and regional economy.
