4B Wednesday, July 15, 2009 Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter DeCoe pleads no conte Joshua Sebold Staff Writer m executed at DeCoe&apos;s resi- dence, where officers report- ed finding more methamphet- amine, as well as marijuana. DeCoe posted bail and was released from custody. DeCoe was allegedly found to be in possession of a metham- phetamine pipe containing a small but usable amount of methamphetamine Wednes- day, May 28, 2008. DeCoe again posted bail and was released. At the pleading, Judge Jane York informed DeCoe she would impose a sentence offive years and eight months in state prison. She added the sentence would be suspended pending DeCoe's to possession of methamphetarnine Darold DeCoe pled no con- test to two counts of possess- ing methamphetamine for sale and one count of trans- porting methamphetamine Thursday, July 2, along with an enhancement for being out on bail when he commit- ted the transporting offense. DeCoe was originally ar- rested Friday, May 2, 2008, fol- lowing a traffic stop. He was found to be in possession of 18 small bags of methampheta- mine during that incident. A search warrant was later confinement in a narcotic de- tention facility in the state prison system for an indeter- minate period of time. Deputy District Attorney HI David Hollister explained the indeterminate incarceration in the narcotics facility could be up to two years and 10 months. He went on to say, "This state prison placement was based on the agreement by all parties. Mr. DeCoe was a de- fendant who may be addicted, or by reason of repeated use of narcotics may be in imminSnt danger of becoming addicted to narcotics within the mean- ing of the California Welfare and Institutions Code." Find us at our bootl in the Industrial Building at the Hollister added, "While I hope Mr: DeCoe is able to get the help he needs to deal with his addiction through the state prison system, my pri- mary concern is making sure Mr. DeCoe is tmable to harm anyone else through the sale of illegal drugs, especially methamphetamine." The deputy DA also said this type of resolution would not have been possible with- out "the Outstanding efforts of the Plumas County Sher- ifPs Office, specifically the In- vestigations Division, and the many concerned citizens who came forward."

After his plea was entered, DeCoe was remanded into the custody of the Plumas Coun- ty Sheriff's Office without bail. A sentencing date has been set for Aug. 14 before Judge York. Plea bargain attempted Joshua Sebold Staff Writer jsebold Enrique Flares pled no con- test to possession of metham- phetamine for sale Thursday, June 23. The district attorney's of- fice has agreed to the plea and, assuming Judge Ira Kaufman approves the agree- ment at the scheduled sen- tencing in August, Flares will be facing 16 months in prison. Flares was arrested Friday, April 10, after deputies ar- rived at 5630 Iron Horse in Portola to assist in an assault investigation. A sergeant arrived on the scene next, entering a sin- glewide trailer to secure the area and take photographs. A deputy had difficulty en- tering the trailer, as one door was blocked by a 2x4 and the other was secured with a homemade metal lock. Once inside the residence, a deputy and sergeant allegedly located the defendant hiding in a closet under some clothes. Flares was Tazed and al- legedly found to have $1,188 and two cell phones on his person. Officers also reported find- ing a .22 caliber Ruger hand- gun, a digital scale disguised as an iPod, two containers of • .22 caliber ammunition, a So- cial Security card and Mexi- can ID both in his name, 30-50 torn pieces of plastic inside a false compartment in a ther- mos, .14 grams of crystal methamphetamine, a video surveillance system and a po- lice scanner. Additional evidence led officers to believe that Flares flushed methamphetamine down the toilet prior to their arrival. Deputy District Attorney David Hollister explained, "A successful resolution would not have been possible without the diligent efforts of Sgt. Chad Hermann, Deputies Andrea Murana and Matt Beatley, and Detective Mike Smith." Hollister added, "This case is a continuing example of the active efforts of Plumas County law enforcement to stop methamphetamine traf- ticking-- particularly in the Portola area." "This case should serve as a reminder that even when added efforts are made to de- ter law enforcement, people trafficking in methampheta- mine will be discovered, ar- rested, convicted and pun- ished," he concluded.

The USFS emi)loyees summoned the CHP, but did not locate Williams when they went back to look for him. Three young people travel- ing southbound on Road }13 approximately one mile south of the collision saw Williams and brought him back to his pickup. They attempted to as- sist Williams in rolling the pickup back onto its wheels. CHP Officer Wheaten ar- rived on scene; Williams yelled an expletive and took off running southbound through the woods. The three young people could give no reason to ex- plain why Williams took off running and said he did not appear to be injured. A tow truck was called to clear the roadway and while CHP officers searched area roads. They were unable to locate Williams. Fatality, July 8 Jerry L. Keller, 63, of Corn- ing, was driving his 1991 Pe- terbilt water truck eastbound on U Line Road, approximate- ly 23 miles north of SR 70 on a dirt loSging road. The subject was pulling the vehicle away from a small creek after filling the tank on the truck with water. The subject drove his vehicle too close to the edge of the small creek, which caused the vehi- cle to begin losing its trac- tion. As the vehicle was slid- ing into the creek, it over- turned onto its roof. As a result of the collision the subject sustained fatal in- juries and was pronounced deceased at the scene of the collision.
