Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, June 20, 2012 11A Man arrested f,00r sexualassault Dan McDonald Staff Writer A 34-year-old Chester man is being held on $100,000 bail in the Plumas County Jail af- ter being arrested on multiple sex-related charges, including sexual assault of a child un- der the age of 14. Robert Wilson Neal Jr. was arrested Monday at 10:15 p.m. at a Chester residence by sheriff's deputies. Neal was also charged with penetration with a foreign object, assault to commit rape, oral copulation with a person under 18 years of age, rape by force of fear, lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14 years of age, and being a felon in posses- sion of a firearm. According to the sheriff's report, dispatchers received a 911 call Monday morning, June 11, alleging a sexual as- sault of a female child under 14. According to the 911 log, the caller reported that a 13-year- old girl had been "hurt" by Neal the previous night. After an investigation by deputies and sheriffs detec- tives, the reported victim and another young girl were tak- en into Child Protective Ser- vice custody Monday evening. Neal was arrested about 20 minutes later at 258 Laurel Lane #1, in Chester. He was transported to the Plumas County Jail where he was booked. "We still have a very active investigation occurring," Plumas County District Attor- ney David HoUister said Fri- day afternoon. Neal was expected to enter a plea during his appearance in Plumas County Superior Court today, June 20. Search warrants yield three drug arrests Dan McDonald Staff Writer ' Three people were arrested after four search warrants were served simultaneously Wednesday morning, June 13, in Blairsden and the Portola area. Led by Plumas County sher- iffs investigators, two Blairs- den men and a Portola woman were arrested and booked on drug charges. In Blairsden, Brian Lungstrom and Jason Kin- cade were charged with pos- session of methamphetamine. Kincade was also charged with having a seUable amount of meth as well as being in possession of stolen property. Lungstrom's other charges in- cluded being a felon in posses- sion of handguns and having a gun with an altered serial number. In Portola, Kimberly Horigan wa charged with possession of methamphetamine, being under the influence of a con- trolled substance and posses- sion of drug paraphernalia. According to Plumas Coun- ty Investigations Sgt. Steve Peay, 25 officers from three counties, as well as the Cali- fornia Highway Patrol, joined forces to serve the warrants, "This all happened pretty close to simultaneously," Peay said. "We wouldn't have been able to do it without the help of outside agencies." Investigators were assist- ed by the CHP, Lassen Coun- ty Sheriff's Office, Washoe County Sheriff's Office and the 8usanville Police De- partment. Washoe County also provid- ed two K-9 dogs, according to Peay. The 8:30 a.m. searches took place at two Portola resi- dences, one in Deileker and one in Blairsden. The suspects were booked into the Plumas County Jail. Meacher closes in Dan McDonald Staff Writer Plumas County Supervisor Robert Meacher's bid to win a seat in the state Assembly iS still very much alive. After trailing Republican Rick Bosetti by nearly 2,000 votes June 6, Meacher had closed the gap to 880 as of Monday morning, June 18. "All things being equal, if the trend continues we have a good chance of pulling this thing out," Meacher said. "But we might not know for another two weeks." The Genesee Democrat was the leading vottgetter in three the four counties that still have votes remaining to be counted-- Butte, Nevada and Placer. Meacher said he was encour- aged by the fact that the major- ity of the last-minute voters ap- peared to be Democrats. He said the party made a late push with a phone-call campaign urging voters to go to the polls. If the trends in those coun- ties continue, Meacher could pull even with, or even pass, Bosetti for second place in the District 1 primary. Bosetti or Meacher would face Republican Brian Dahle in a November run-off. Dahle, a Lassen County su- pervisor, had 34.4 percent of the vote as of Monday. Boset- ti's 27,352 votes accounted for 27.5 percent. Meacher had 26,472 votes (26.6 percent). Green Party candidate David Edwards had 5,984 votes (6 percent) and Liber- tarian Charley Hooper had 5,503 (5.5 percent). Meacher said he probably lost a lot of votes to Green and Libertarian candidates. "Add in the votes from those two and I would have been the top vote-getter," Meacher said the day after the primary. "I knew the dilution factor was going to be there, I just didn't think it would play that much of a factor." As of Monday, there were still more than 30,000 votes to be counted. Ballots can be counted up to 28 days after the June 5 prima. ry election. The results are ex- pected to be certified by July 3. MMUNITY CORNER WEEKLY CALENDAR.
