OROVILLE, Calif. – The Butte County Sheriff’s Office announced it has arrested an Oroville man after DNA evidence linked him to two residential burglaries.

In July of 2020, the Butte County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) Felony Investigations Unit began investigating two residential burglaries that happened at a residence in the Oroville area. Authorities said they determined the first burglary occurred in June, and the second burglary occurred in July.

Throughout the investigations, deputies determined large amounts of property and vehicles were stolen from the residence. Deputies and detectives located items they believed would contain DNA evidence.

In July of 2020, detectives contacted and placed 50-year-old Bobby Clark, of Oroville, under arrest for possession of narcotics paraphernalia.

During the arrest, authorities said Clark provided detectives with a DNA reference sample.

The Butte County Sheriff’s Office obtained an ANDE DNA machine in 2018. According to the sheriff’s office, the ANDE DNA machine allows for DNA to be processed within hours. Detectives were able to use the machine in this investigation to link Clark to the aforementioned burglaries.

Based on the DNA evidence and other evidence located during the investigation, detectives said they then obtained an arrest warrant for Clark. On Aug. 24, Clark was located and placed under arrest. Clark was booked at the Butte County Jail for one felony count of burglary. His bail was set at $50,000.

He is scheduled to be arraigned at the Butte County Superior Court on Wednesday, August 26, at 3 p.m.

The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with additional information regarding Clark to contact Detective Will Brewton at 530-538-7671.
