Commercial Metal Theft Arrest
(Posted 5/1/2017)

On 4/30/17 at 8:17am, a private security company requested a deputy respond regarding a trespassing occurring in the 4200 block of Hammonton Smartsville Rd at the area of the Teichert Rock Plant. Upon conducting a security check of the premises; deputies located a subject, later identified as Joseph Bunnell, running from the area. The subject was ordered to stop and eventually did so and was detained by the deputies. After further investigation at the scene, deputies located several areas where wire had been recently cut and was missing; including finding approximately 75 yards of recently cut wire that had been removed from a power box nearby and drug a distance; and areas of fresh cut copper wire from a cement pad where transformers were once located. Deputies also located fresh tire marks, and a backpack of tools commonly used for electrical work left in the area of the thefts. An initial approximate estimation of damages and property loss is $5,000. Bunnell was arrested for 487PC Grand Larceny and 594(b)(1)PC Vandalism. Joseph Robert Bunnell is 38 years old and resides in Olivehurst. He was booked into Yuba County Jail where he remains this morning 5/1 with a bail of $20,000
