On September 8, 2020, the Red Bluff police said they received a cyber-tip from the Internet Crimes Against Children Data System. The tip, they said, indicated that Christopher Wiessner had uploaded pornographic images to children to the internet.

Officers said they discovered one of the images uploaded by Wiessner was of a local victim. They said they contacted this victim who disclosed to detectives that he/she was sexually abused by Wiessner over a period of time.

Wiessner has been arrested and his bail is $2,180,000.

It was nice to receive some rain and mountain snow around northern California late Sunday and early Monday. Thankfully a change to our overall weather pattern is underway, and many more chances of rain are coming!
