On Wednesday July 2, 2014, Butte County Sheriff’s Deputies went to 783 Muir Ave., in the unincorporated area of Chico. The resident, Forrest Robb, had previously been arrested for possession of methamphetamine. Robb was subsequently released on his own recognizance, and was subject to search by Law Enforcement. Deputies conducted an O.R. compliance search. Deputies found numerous used, uncapped, hypodermic needles strewn about the residence, with 2.3 grams of methamphetamine. A motorcycle stolen from within the City of Chico was recovered inside the living room of the residence, and a Dodge pickup stolen from a nearby business was recovered in the back yard. The owner of the pickup confirmed that significant changes had been made to its appearance since it had been stolen.
