IOA Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2012 Feather River Bulletin A citizen tip about deer poaching turned into a mul- ti-agency operation result- ing in the seizure of poached wildlife, drugs and stolen guns and cars. The Department of Fish and Game operation, which included assistance from U.S. Forest Service officers, California Highway Patrol officers and Lassen County sheriffs deputies, resulted in four arrests. The operation began Oct. 21 when DFG wardens re- ceived confidential informa- tion from a citizen and re- sponded to the home of Charles Roger Godkin, 44, of Chilcoot, to investigate sus- pected deer poaching. Lassen County Warden Nick Buckler and Plumas County Warden Steve Ulrich learned that Godkin had an active arrest warrant for a prior criminal offense. Upon arrival at his prop- erty, they discovered two stolen vehicles.

Warden Willson cited the "Resource enforcement is driver of the vehicle for dri- connected to all forms of ving while in possession of crime," said Warden Buckler. "We frequently en- counter a variety of major crimes, including those in- volving drugs, firearms and violence in our investiga- tions, and having the assis- tance and support of other local, state and federal agen- cies is a huge benefit." A CalTIP (Californians Turn In Poachers and Pol- luters) generated this case. CalTIP is a confidential wit- ness program that encour- ages the public to provide DFG with information lead- ing to the arrest of poachers and polluters. Those who witness a poaching or pol- luting incident or any fish and wildlife violation, or have information about such a violation; should im- mediately dial the toll-free number: 888-DFG-CALTIP (888-334-2258). Deer meat samples seized from the both properties were analyzed at DFG's Wildlife Forensics Laborato- ry and were determined to have come from the same deer. Effective last Tuesday, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Pro- tection (CalFire) Lassen- Modoc-Plumas Unit lifted restrictions on dooryard debris burning. This .means residents may burn dooryard debris without a permit. Permits will not be required until May 1, 2013. However, residents must still contact their local air pollution control district to ensure it's a permissive burn day. This summer brought devastating wildfires to Northern California. Though CalFire recognizes the need to burn debris and the convenience of doing so on site, residents should not let lower temperatures lull them into a false sense li a rl of security. One or two warm days can cause fine fuels such as twigs, pine needles and grasses to be easily ignited. Those who must burn should use extreme cau- tion. Never leave a fire un- attended; residents whose debris burn escapes their control could be held liable for suppression costs. On Oct. 29, the Lassen- Modoc-Plumas Unit began releasing seasonal fire- fighters and cutting back on the number of fire en- gines staffed around the clock. CalFire maintains and staffs an appropriate level of fire response re- sources throughout the winter period until spring or until the potential for wildfire increases.
