REDDING, Calif. - A man accused of stealing a trailer from a family during the Carr Fire was sentenced to five years in prison.

David Fuentes pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges of first-degree burglary, unlawful taking of a vehicle and looting. He also admitted a violation of probation.

Owner of the trailer, Zach Bonnin, said the items inside, including photo albums and scrapbooks, were of no value to anyone except him and his family.

He has a newfound appreciation for the district attorney's office after this experience.

“For the DA to go out and find this and take this effort to go after these people that had taken the items was extraordinary,” Bonnin said. “They have really gone above and beyond. And we really appreciate everything they've done.”

Fuentes allegedly stole the trailer the Bonnin family was residing in after they were evacuated from their home during the Carr Fire.

The trailer was later recovered and the items were found and returned to the family.

The district attorney said this case should also serve as a reminder that they will seek out and prosecute looters to the fullest extent of the law.

A disturbance moved over northern California and the rest of the Pacific Northwest this afternoon. It brought more gusty wind like yesterday, and cooler air, but only isolated rain showers. It will be much quieter this weekend with a late summer warmup.
