MASSIVE AG THEFT BUST IN SUTTER COUNTY

Sutter County Under-sheriff Scott Smallwood reports an arrest following a massive ag theft at Golden Gate Hop Ranch, just south of the Yuba City limits in the 12,000 block of Garden highway. An estimated $80,000 of ‘farm-type equipment’ was noticed missing at around 11:00 Tuesday morning. Then, late Wednesday afternoon, an employee called the sheriff’s office reporting that much of the stolen equipment was on the levee near Messick Road. Responding deputies arrived and approached 48-year-old Ed Charge of Yuba City who was booked on suspicion of possessing burglary tools and stolen property.
