3 Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, Nov. 3, 2010 3B LAW lnd ORDER Law and Order policy Information that appears in this column is compiled from the Plumas County Sheriff's Office' activity log, the county correc- tional center's booking log and California Highway Patrol press releases. The Sheriff's Blotter shows initial charges. In some in- stances the charges may change after the dispatch report. We do not report suspects' names in ar- rests for public intoxication or drunken driving unless accompa- nied by another serious charge, such as probation violation, a ve- hicle accident or another felony. The fact that someone has been arrested and charged with a crime does not constitute guilt. The case may never appear in court if the district attorney de- termines there is insufficient evi- dence to prosecute. The fact that someone was involved in an au- tomobile collision does not con- stitute liability or fault. Minors are named as legal-age drivers at 16, unless they are charged with a crime in conjunction with an in- cident. The CHP determines whether injuries are character- ized as minor, moderate or fatal. SHERIFF'S BLOTTER Arrests Blairsden One person was arrested on a DUI charge.

COURT BLOTTER All four Quincy residents involved with the Plumas County Fairgrounds burglar- ies have been sentenced. Joshua Hayes, 23; Thomas Gilliani, 27; Robert Venuti, 26 and Eric Oxley, 22, were in- volved in a break-in Wednes- day, Aug. 18, shortly after the county fair ended. According to District Attor- ney-elect Dave Hollister, the four were accused of break- ing into a trailer belonging to the Quincy Elks and a fair- grounds office building, steal- ing cash, a cell phone, a cam- era, alcohol and beer tap han- dles, while also causing dam- age to both locations. All four were convicted of second-degree burglary in late August. Hayes and Gilliam were sentenced in early October to two years in state prison. Venuti and Oxley were sen- tenced in mid-October to three years probation, in- cluding 180 days in jail. All four burglars were or- dered to pay around $4,000 in restitution, split between the two victims. Hollister explained the dif- ferences in sentences were based on the burglars' crimi- nal records and their levels of involvement in the break-ins. He was pleased with the sentences and appreciated the efforts of the Plumas County Sheriff's Office in quickly solving the case. The sentences should deliv- er a strong message that property crimes will contin- ue to be met with a proactive and aggressive response Hol- lister added.
