Friday, October 14, 2011 3:00 PM

For Immediate Release:

The Sutter County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help in identifying a large amount of metal which is believed to be stolen from various farms in the surrounding counties.

On Thursday, October 14, 2011, the Sutter County Sheriff’s Office received a call of a burglary in progress in the 3100 block of Tierra Buena Road. Deputies arrived on scene and located a male adult and a 16 year old female getting into a maroon Ford F150 extended cab pickup which was parked on the shoulder of the roadway near the above location.

The home owner advised deputies the two above suspects were inside her camp trailer removing property when she arrived at her residence. When the home owner called 9-1-1 the suspects ran from the trailer toward their pickup. While running the 16 year old juvenile threw her purse into some nearby bushes which was found containing drug paraphernalia, marijuana, and prescription medication. The bed of the pickup contained a large amount of metal which was piled up over the cab. Deputies believe the metal to be stolen and impounded the vehicle and metal.

Alejandro Canchola-Trejo, 20 years old, out of Williams, was booked into Sutter County Jail on charges of conspiracy and burglary. Bail was set at $15,000.

The 16 year old female was booked into Juvenile Hall.

Investigation into this incident is ongoing. Detectives will continue working to identify the property. Anyone having information about this burglary or information about the large amount of metal recovered is urged to call the Sutter County Sheriff’s Office at (530) 822-7307 or “Leave a Tip” on the Sheriff’s Office website at
