SHASTA – The SCSO had an interestingly dramatic day on July 6 that included burglary, gunshots, a chase and three arrests.

It started with a burglary in progress after 5:00 am on the 15000 block of Cloverdale Road. The same residence experienced a burglary earlier that week.

Responding deputies heard gunshots and encountered a dark colored Ford truck quickly going the other way. They then pursued the fleeing vehicle through various roads until it crashed and the driver fled on foot.

They set up a perimeter but the driver escaped. However, SCSO said “we located evidence in the truck linking Kayla Lane and Troy Heller¬† to the burglary.”

Back at the initial scene, the victim filled in some details. He said that he saw three people (two males and a female)  on his property. One man jumped in a truck and drove it toward him.

The victim fired at the approaching vehicle in self-defense. Deputies located 44-year-old Rodrigo Gonzalez Garcia in the area and arrested him. Then they located 33-year-old Millville resident Kayla Lane walking on the road and also arrested her.

The victim identified this duo as two of the people he saw on his property.

Lane’s charges – attempted burglary, conspiracy, vehicle theft, probation violation and trespassing.

Gonzalez Garcia’s charges – attempted burglary, vehicle theft, assault , conspiracy and trespassing.

What about that truck driver? at 3:00 pm later that day, 51-year-old Troy Heller tried to report his mother’s Ford truck as stolen. Responding deputies then heard Heller “admit to his involvement in the burglary and pursuit.”

Heller’s charges – assault with a deadly weapon, evading, conspiracy, vehicle theft, attempted burglary and trespassing. The SCSO released no information concerning bail amounts
