Tehama County Sheriff's deputies are investigating a pair of burglaries discovered last Friday in Rancho Tehama and in Gerber.

In both burglaries the suspect made away with home improvement items, as well as a variety of other valuables. The first report came from a Gerber man who told deputies that a person had broken into the Big Foot Recycling business in Gerber sometime between 5 p.m. Thursday and 10 a.m. Friday.

The suspect did not cause any damage, but stole a nail gun, U.S. coins, a hunting knife, an Ohm meter, a battery charger and an air compressor. The estimated total value of the items stolen from the business is $780.

A second burglary was reported Friday and in that theft a suspect reportedly cut a chain linked fence and then pried open locked buildings on a property in Rancho Tehama.

The burglars made off with thousands of dollars in tools and other items including a gold dredge machine, a sand separator machine, mining tools, a propane tank, tool boxes, motorcycle helmets, two brand new solar panels and a white and orange box trailer.
