Stolen Property Recovered

Chico, CA- On Wednesday, April 19, 2017, Butte County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) deputies served a search warrant at a home on Gaia Way, off Highway 99, just south of the Tehama County line. The resident of the home, Jason Coy, age 41, was arrested in Chico April 16, 2017, on charges of petty theft and possession of stolen property after being found with items stolen from a home in North Chico.

During the search of the home, deputies located numerous items of stolen property, including firearms, ammunition, chainsaws, power tool equipment, bicycles and generators. A butane honey oil lab was also discovered, along with a significant amount of methamphetamine. Deputies believe the stolen items are related to unsolved burglaries from North Chico and southern Tehama County.

Jason Coy was arrested on several charges, including the manufacturing of a controlled substance, possession of methamphetamine for sale, possession of stolen property, being a felon in possession of a firearm, and being a felon in possession of ammunition. Coy’s girlfriend, Deven Smith, age 26, was arrested on charges of possession of a controlled substance, and possession of stolen property. A third person at the home, Jose Ortiz Hernandez, age 24, was also arrested on a charge of possession of a stolen firearm.

Anyone living in North Chico or southern Tehama County who was the victim of a burglary and had construction equipment stolen is urged to contact Sgt. Brazzi at 538-7321.
