    • Maybe, One would hope at least he won’t be right back out on the street, AGAIN!!!!

      • Possession of machine gun should keep him in there for awhile, especially with priors, guess it depends on how many of his “buddies” he rolls on.

        • just a few plea bargains, a year in county, VIOLA, pluck your magic twanger froggie im back, with an attitude.

          • Hogranch—– “Pluck Your Magic Twanger Froggie” Just gotta love that. “Gingles” The Andy Devine Show. Played in my home town of Boston in the late 1950s. Andy Devine was a T.V. star in the 50s, He also played Wild Bill Hickcock`s side kick named “Gingles” I can hear him now riding his horse with his crackling voice crying out. Wild Bill- wait for me. as his 400 pound frame had trouble trying to keep pace with hard riding Wild Bill. Gingles and Sheriff John along with Engineer Bill got us kids to drink our milk. Remember Red Light, Green Light. The game they used to get us kids to drink our milk, and us kids that were lucky enough to have milk gave it a good try. Along with Howdy Duty , Buffalo Bob, Mr Buster and the infamous Peanut Gallery.
            Those were the days of innocents, getting married for love and staying married. and trusting and respecting your neighbor, not locking your doors and leaving your car keys in the ignition . Sorry we will never see those Days again.

        • Doesn’t everyone own a machine gun these days?

        • 10 years with the use of a fully auto in a crime

  • He will be out on bail, don’t worry. this time he will be pissed an could hurt somebody. happens everyday. Gotta love them lawyers.

  • If there were any consequences for being a cull it might not be so prevalent. But there’s not. He’ll be out sooner than the common man. If you have no money to pay a high fine then you’ll be fine. Seems to be the norm.

  • In light of this morning’s tragic events in Tehama, I wish the L.E. up there would of followed up on the neighbor’s complaints of his harassment and heavy weapons use. Kudos to the Sheriff’s office for catching this man before it got worse.

  • So .. is it assumed that these are part of thE “SWAT” team robbers??

  • They wouldn’t be using their knuckle head deputy crews brute force if they had any evidence, no one was caught in the act, wish everyone would move on, those pot growers destroy water, salmon, and their habitat. That should be 10 years

  • Don’t stop hcso there are more drug dealing assholes in hoopa

  • the russians did it

    maybe it wasn’t really him, maybe it was the russians

  • For one He has his own grow that is why he had all of those guns for 2 they didn’t get the warrent until 9 that night hrs after they had already done an illegal search of there home &car &even had some tech guy take my sister’s phone outside &did something to it &also he wasn’t hideing in the house he was in his bedroom &when they came in he put his hands & complied with everything they asked &also he had nothing to do with the bair Rd incident nor the bald hill one. The police was telling my sister she was really pretty &what was she doing with him(harvey crews) how professional is that of them she had to ask for them to get somebody from tribal police to come &sit with her while they continued there illegal search because she was uncomfortable by what a few of the officers were saying to her man thats really messed up.
