FRESNO – Fresno County Sheriff’s deputies have arrested Bryan Gammell, 54, of Oakhurst, and Cory Scow, 46, of Friant on multiple felony charges related to burglary, possession of stolen property and being felons prohibited from possessing guns or ammunition.
Both have been booked into the Fresno County Jail.
On Monday, Mar. 19, a person reported to the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office that on Sunday a burglary had occurred on their property along the 30000 block of Burrough Valley Road in Tollhouse.
The victim claimed a loss of $40,000 worth of items including motorcycles, trailers, ammunition and construction tools, according to the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office.
The victim checked a trail camera that was setup on the property and found that it had snapped photos of the suspects and their vehicle. Deputies met with the victim, reviewed the photos and were able to identify Cory Scow and Bryan Gammell as the suspects.
Deputies went in search of the two men by visiting a home on the 17000 block of N. Waldby Ave. in Friant. On the way to the home, a deputy passed a white SUV matching the one shown in the surveillance photo.
The deputy made a traffic stop on the vehicle being driven by Cory Scow. According to the Sheriff’s Office, the deputy found some of the stolen property inside the vehicle. Deputies arrested Scow and continued on to the Waldby address.
There they found the rest of the stolen items, along with Bryan Gammell, whom they determined worked with Scow to commit the burglary. The two made multiple trips to the property throughout the day to steal many items, says the Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies collected all of the stolen items and returned them to the rightful owner.
