Fresno County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a home on Burrough Valley Road in Tollhouse on Monday March 19, 2018 when property owners reported they had been the victim of a burglary. The thieves made multiple trips to the home on Sunday and made off with $40,000 worth of goods.

The loot included motorcycles, trailers, ammunition, and construction tools. They also left something behind: a clear image of themselves and their car on a trail camera, which is usually used by hunters to capture passing game.

The burglars were quickly identified as 46-year old Cory Scow of Friant and 54-year old Bryan Gammell of Oakhurst.

That same day, as deputies were in route to North Waldby Ave in Friant, the location of a home where they expected to find the suspects, they spotted the white SUV captured by the trail camera, driving by.

Deputies successfully pulled over the SUV and searched the vehicle where they found some of the stolen items. The driver, Scow, was arrested.

At the Waldby home they found Gammell, Scow’s accomplice, and the rest of the stolen items. The rightful owner was reunited with their property while Scow and Gammell found themselves booked into Fresno County Jail facing charges for burglary, felons in possession of guns and ammunition, and possession of stolen property.
