Burney Burglars Bagged
It’s not really smart to burglarize a residence a block from the Sheriff’s substation

BURNEY —Deputies were dispatched to the 37000 block of State Highway 299 in Burney for a reported burglary in progress on Saturday, February 28, at approximately 6:08 p.m. The reporting party stated they observed two subjects enter a residence that the reporting party was caretaking. Deputies arrived moments after the call was received and began to surround the location.

While surrounding the location, Deputy Ben Estill encountered a subject, later identified as Monty Carey(shown left), 25, fleeing the location by jumping out a second story window. Carey was taken into custody without further incident. Deputies then ordered the other subject out of the residence. The other subject was taken into custody without incident, and was identified as Jacob Barbee (shown below right). Barbee, 33, was in possession of narcotics and narcotics paraphernalia, along with burglary tools.

During a walkthrough of the residence, numerous items appeared to be placed into bags in preparation to steal. These items included antiques, jewelry, and miscellaneous personal items.

Both subjects were arrested and booked into the Shasta County Jail for residential burglary and conspiracy. Their bail was set at $10,000 each. The case is still under investigation.

U.S.F.S. Continues to Evaluate Wind Damage to Lassen Forest
SUSANVILLE, – Natural resources staff from the Lassen National Forest continue to evaluate the extent of damage caused throughout the Forest by a major wind event earlier this month.

Moderate to severe blowdown of trees is being discovered across the Forest, with many roads blocked and impassable. Crews are systematically working to clear away trees and debris and reopen roads, beginning with highways and main thoroughfares.

Forest visitors are reminded that they are not permitted to cut or remove trees to open roads. Additionally, wheeled motorized vehicles may not be used off-road, except to retrieve firewood, but not to scout for it.

Woodcutters should keep in mind that trees marked with paint or within areas where “Cutting Prohibited,” “No Woodcutting,” or similar signs are posted are also unavailable for cutting at this time.

In accordance with fuelwood cutting requirements, temporary cutting restrictions could be put in place at locations throughout the Forest. Violations of these requirements could result in a citation and/or fine.

Some administrative sites, such as buildings and campgrounds, were also impacted by the storm, and the Forest is making removal of standing hazards and downed trees from these areas another priority.

Historic Building Not to be Repaired
BURNEY — The Historic McCloud River Railroad’s Burney office, completed in 1957, is in the process of becoming abandoned.

The building housed the Burney portion of the Rail operation until it’s demise in 2009. During those years it also housed other businesses, from the PG&E Pipeline Construction offices to Fruit Growers Supply Company.

The latest wind storm brought trees down and left the building damaged and the owner has reportedly declined to have it repaired, leaving Fruit Growers no choice but to move into offices on Main Street in downtown Burney.

John Carlton, the original Burney Manager for McCloud and now owner of Carlton Enterprises, says it is a shame. It took over a year to build the office. It’s siding is all pine cut from the McCloud mill and is extremely well built.
