BUTTE COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE WARNS CITIZENS TO BE AWARE OF PHONE AND E-MAIL SCAMS

September 28, 2018
BUTTE COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE WARNS CITIZENS TO BE AWARE OF PHONE AND E-MAIL SCAMS
Butte County, Ca—Butte County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) Detectives have seen an increase in reports of phone and e-mail scams in Butte County. It is expected that the scams will continue to increase with the holiday season approaching. There are many different phone and e-mail scams, and they are constantly changing; however, there are ways to avoid becoming a victim.
• Never open unsolicited e-mails.
• Don’t click on links that are e-mailed or texted to you.
• Do not provide personal identifying information over the phone, legitimate businesses will not call you to ask for this information.
• If contacted by a “debt collector” verify their information.
• The IRS and local law enforcement will not call you and demand money in lieu of being arrested.
• Do not pay for goods or services with Green Dot Money Cards, iTunes gift cards or Google play cards. If this is a requested method of payment, it’s a scam.
Many times phone and e-mail scams target the elderly in our community, but anyone can become a victim. BCSO urges citizens to be vigilant and report suspicious phone calls or e-mails to local law enforcement.

BUTTE COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE SPECIAL ENFORCEMENT UNIT LOCATES MARIJUNANA GROW SITE LINKED TO DRUG TRAFFICKING ORGANIZATION
Oroville, Ca--On September 20th, 2018, members of the Butte County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) Special Enforcement Unit (SEU) served a search warrant on property located on lower Black Bart Road near Forbestown Road, Oroville, after aerial overflights revealed a clandestine marijuana grow site.  Numerous marijuana plants were being grown within the manzanita, in an effort to hide the marijuana from the BCSO helicopter.
Upon service of the search warrant, SEU Detectives did not locate any suspects at the scene, and it appeared the marijuana grow site was unoccupied.  The marijuana grow site appeared to be the work of a Drug Trafficking Organization (DTO) who may frequent the marijuana grow site every few days.  
The marijuana was being watered via a well and large storage tank.  The water was gravity fed from the water storage tank and the water was controlled by battery powered automatic water timers.
293 marijuana plants were eradicated from the area.  This is an ongoing investigation by SEU.
