Unable to initially locate the subjects as they apparently attempted to allude him, the officer began searching the area and saw a white Chevy pickup truck turn on headlights and drive out of a nearby parking area. After making a traffic stop on the vehicle he came upon 5 subjects in the truck. Two of  the subjects were on searchable probation. An initial search turned up drug paraphernalia

Upon further investigation, the officer located a Yamaha outboard motor in the bed of the truck.

The driver of the truck, Brandon Burr, 33, of Grass Valley- also on probation-  could not explain how or why he came into possession of the outboard motor which was valued at over 2,000 dollars.
Burr was arrested for allegedly receiving stolen property. Both Burr and Sartain were taken into custody and booked into the Wayne Brown Correctional Facility.
