Meanwhile, Madera County Sheriff’s deputies are still searching for 29-year-old Adrian Joseph Reyes of Ahwahnee. The Sheriff’s Office reports that both Reyes and Huber were positively identified in the aggravated assault case that occurred on Konklin Road in Coarsegold, where a man was robbed and then shot in the early morning hours of Apr. 2.
According to reports, the victim, who is on probation in another county for narcotics, was visiting the mountain area to gamble and party with friends.
