A Cottonwood man didn't have to go far to lead deputies to his stolen ATVs.
Tehama County deputies arrested 45-year-old Timothy Granville and 47-year-old Frank Rodney after they reportedly admitted to stealing their neighbor's quads
It turns out most of the investigative work was done before deputies arrived.
That’s because the homeowner had followed the tracks from his barn to his neighbor’s house before reporting the theft and all deputies had to do was retrace his steps.
The ATVs were found in the backyard of the home and returned to the original owner.
