A local man felt the heat of law enforcement after he was seen stealing money from a Grass Valley business. Grass Valley Police Sergeant Joe Matteoni says 47 year old Danny Tarp entered the Prosperity Lanes bowling and took the tip jar on the counter. When the Police reviewed the video surveillance tape they quickly identified Tarp as the suspect.
“Officers responded to the scene and they viewed the video surveillance and they recognized him from the previous law enforcement contact.”
The Sergeant says the next day Tarp called the Police station, because he had heard they were looking for him. He was taken into custody for suspicion of theft and burglary. He was booked at the Wayne Brown Correctional facility.
