MAGALIA, Calif. - Butte County Sheriff's Deputies arrested two men on Saturday night in connection to stolen possessions and also assaulting a deputy. 

On Jan. 26, deputies found David Eugene Blood, 52, of Magalia, and Kenneth Zimmerman, 51, of Magalia, walking out of the remains of the Discount Liquor Store, which was destroyed by the Camp Fire. 

The deputies found Blood to be in possession of property previously stolen from the business, but the sheriff's office did not disclose what specific items he had. 

After searching Blood's vehicle, they found a loaded 45 caliber handgun in his backpack. When they attempted to detain Blood he punched one of the deputies in the face and also made threats to kill them. 

Blood and Zimmerman were both detained and arrested. Blood was transferred to a hospital for medical treatment before being booked into jail for an injury to his hand. 

Blood was booked into Butte County Jail on multiple charges including obstructing/resisting a peace officer with force or violence, battery on a peace officer, possessing a loaded concealed firearm within a vehicle, possession of an open container and obstructing a public officer. His bail was set at $68,000. 

A further investigation revealed that Blood was also the subject of a restraining order and was prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition.

Simmerman was booked into Butte County Jail for public intoxication.
