District Attorney David Linn praised the efforts of the Madera County Sheriff’s Department, Ag Crimes Detective Adam McEwen, and PG&E Senior Security Investigator Del Unruh for their investigation in this case.

The crime was prosecuted by the District Attorney’s Office Agricultural and Water Crimes Task Force headed by Supervising Deputy District Attorney Todd Spangler.
