A man arrested while trespassing in Butte Creek Canyon during the Camp Fire evacuation is going to prison.

41-year-old Jason Burns-Doak was sentenced to 5 years, 4 months in prison for stealing an SUV, as well as possessing an illegal gun and drugs.

The Butte County District Attorney says the SUV had actually been stolen from a tractor dealership in Yuba City during the 2017 Oroville spillway evacuation.

Burns-Doak had previously pleaded guilty.
