Alert Citizen Helps Capture Pump Station Thieves

Yuba County authorities are crediting an alert citizen for the capture of two thieves. Yuba County Sheriff Lieutenant Damon Gil says the witness saw flashlights around a pump station south of Marysville, late Tuesday night and Deputies found tools scattered around the pump station.

48 year old Lynn Smith and 38 year old Jerry Moffit both of Olivehurst were taken into custody for suspicion of attempted grand theft and possession of burglary tools. The Lieutenant says without the alert witness the capture of these two men would have been impossible.
