SEARCH CONTINUES FOR MISSING HIKER AT FEATHER FALLS
Oroville, Ca—Butte County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) Search and Rescue teams continue to search the area surrounding Feather Falls today, after receiving a 9-1-1 call yesterday afternoon reporting a man, identified as Matthew Nisleit, age 23, had slipped and fallen down the falls.
Search teams from BCSO, Cal Fire and Chico Fire responded to the area last night, in addition to helicopters from BCSO and Enloe Flight Care, but were unable to locate Matthew.
BCSO’s helicopter was used again this morning to search the area surrounding Feather Falls. Observers in the helicopter didn’t see any signs of Matthew, but were able to determine that the area is not accessible by boat at this time.
BCSO Search and Rescue members are currently searching the trails in the Feather Falls area and California Highway Patrol will also assist in the search today using their helicopter equipped with thermal imaging cameras. Due to safety concerns, search teams are not able to enter the water at this time.
Representatives from BCSO are working closely with Matthew’s family, and are sharing information as it becomes available.
We are fortunate to have many beautiful places to hike to in Butte County; please use caution, and keep in mind with the increased rain and snowmelt, water in our Butte County waterways is moving much faster than it might look. Please be careful.

FOOT PURSUIT LEADS TO DISCOVERY OF MARIJUANA GARDEN

On May 10th, 2017 Butte County Sheriff’s Office Deputies attempted to serve a felony arrest warrant in the 3880 block of Cherokee Road, Oroville. Upon service of the felony arrest warrant, two males ran from the Deputies. A search was conducted and Eliceo Aguilar Morales, Age 31 from Michoacán, Mexico, was detained. During the foot pursuit, thousands of marijuana plants were seen on the property. Deputies contacted the Butte County Sheriff’s Office Special Enforcement Unit who took over the investigation and obtained a search warrant for the property.

The search warrant revealed 3,648 marijuana plants on the property; most of which were being grown in plastic cups and trays. Other areas of the marijuana garden held larger marijuana plants.

Water to the marijuana grow site was being diverted from a small creek which was fed by Grub Flat Reservoir. The water was being diverted from the creek to an illegally built pond and then pumped to the marijuana growing site.

A search of the home and property revealed 34.64 net pounds of processed marijuana. A loaded rifle was also found at the entrance to the marijuana garden.

Eliceo Aguilar Morales was arrested for felony cultivation of marijuana, possession of marijuana for sale, armed in the commission of a felony, and illegal water diversion. Morales’ bail is $500,000.00.
