SISKIYOU COUNTY, Calif. - One Siskiyou County Deputy was awarded a Sheriff's Commendation after he solved a November commercial burglary case.

The crime happened in Dunsmuir at the Cornerstone Bakery where a large amount of money was stolen. Officials say the suspect was gone before deputies arrived.

Deputy Oritz found leads through his investigation that ultimately identified the suspect as Lamont Brown. Brown had previously been involved in a burglary at a local restaurant and had only recently been identified as a suspect in another burglary near Weed.

Brown was already in the Siskiyou County Jail for past crimes so Deputy Oritz filed a criminal complaint with the District Attorney's office. Burglary and theft charges were then filed for the Cornerstone Bakery crime.

“Deputy Ortiz is an exemplary deputy and it is a pleasure serving with co-workers of his caliber and strong work ethic," said Sheriff Jon Lopey.

In a ceremony, Deputy Oritz was cited for his outstanding investigative work and praised for amassing a consistent record of professionalism, proactive work productivity, innovation and effectiveness as an officer.
