REDDING, Calif. - A homeless man is behind bars in Shasta County after a California Highway Patrol officer found him with a stolen quad near Highway 273 and Clear Creek Road, said the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office.


According to SCSO, a CHP officer was providing security for the Carr Fire evacuation areas at 5:52 p.m., he saw a man later identified as Jacob Taylor, 39, of Redding driving a quad eastbound through a fenced area.


When the officer got in touch with Taylor, he noticed that the quad was “punched” indicating that the vehicle was probably stolen.


SCSO said authorities then called the owner of the quad, who was evacuated for the Carr Fire and she told deputies that the last time she saw her quad was inside her garage at the 1600 block of South View Dr., Redding.


The CHP officer then called SCSO to confirm the burglary, prompting CHP to arrest Taylor and charge him with grand theft vehicle and possession of a stolen vehicle, said SCSO.


Taylor was later charged on Tuesday with residential burglary as well as looting in an evacuated area once deputies responded to the home where the quad was stolen and found evidence linking Taylor to the break-in.

Today was hot and tomorrow will be as well. But slightly below average temperatures move in as we see a dip in the jet stream.
