A Sisikiyou County Sheriff's Office deputy helps ends a serial burglar's crime spree.

According to SCSO, Deputy Gary Pannell determined 28-year-old David Andrew Langford along with accomplices were responsible for stealing over 300 gallons of fuel from a local ranch, at least one burglary, and theft on Log House Road. SCSO also believe he was connected to at least 10 other burglaries in the Butte Valley area.

On Tuesday, a team made up of SCSO California Highway Patrol, and United States Forest Service (USFS) Law Enforcement Branch executed a search warrant at Langford's home and recovered multiple items reported or suspect stolen:

  • generators
  • water pumps,
  • ladders
  • space heaters
  • solar panels
  • fencing supplies
  • gas cans
  • burglary tools

Law enforcement also recovered 100 pounds of Marijuana.

Langford was arrested for burglary, possession of stolen property, and drug-related charges. He was lodged into the Siskiyou County Jail.

Two additional suspects were identified at the home and will face burglary and/or illegal possession of marijuana.

According to Sheriff Jon Lopey, “This was an example of excellent, old-fashion police work that led to the detection and arrest of a serial burglar and thief, ending a Butte Valley crime spree. The main suspect (Langford) and others will also face drug-related charges. This case was also a good example of the excellent interagency relationships that exist between local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies in Siskiyou County..."
