BIG BEAR CITY RESIDENTS REPORTED A MAN WITH A GUN, SHOOTING INTO TREES

Residents reported a man with a gun shooting into trees. Deputies found the man with a BB gun shooting at squirrels

DATE/TIME: August 11, 2020 3:58 p.m.

INCIDENT: Ring Video Captures Images of Male Subject Shooting Into Trees

LOCATION: 300 Block S. Brewer Way, Big Bear City

SUSPECT: 45-year-old male, resident of Valley Village, CA

SUMMARY:
Shortly before 4:00 p.m. on August 11, 2020, deputies from the Big Bear Sheriff's Station responded to a report of a Ring video that captured what appeared to be an armed male subject walking around the back yard of the residence, shooting into trees. Multiple patrol units responded to the house in the 300 block of S. Brewer Way in Big Bear City and conducted extensive area checks. At that time, no subjects matching the description of the male in the video were located.

At approximately 8:30 p.m., information was received from an employee of a local rental management company who saw the video on social media and the male subject was recognized as a tenant who was currently renting a cabin in the same neighborhood where the Ring video was captured. Based on community assistance and social media, deputies were able to make contact with the man at the rental cabin. Deputies determined the male subject used a BB gun to shoot at squirrels from the reporting party's property. The replica handgun was seized and a report was prepared for review by the District Attorney's Office to determine if criminal charges will be filed against the male.

The Big Bear Sheriff's Station appreciates the diligence and cooperation of local residents to keep our community safe.

Can you shoot squirrels with a slingshot?
Can you shoot peanuts at squirrels with a slingshot?
Can you throw rocks at squirrels?
Can you throw peanuts at squirrels?

Actually I only have chipmunks and we play hide and seek with the peanuts (unsalted of course).

Don't blame me! I was left unsupervised!

is it illegal to kill varmints in big bear? not saying that the squirrels the guy was trying to hit were pests, but is there a legal difference to killing rats in my backyard with a pellet gun, and squirrels? Is that why Sherrifs confiscated his pellet gun? or was the pellet gun confiscated without backup of an ordinance or law regarding use of a pellet gun on a residential neighborhood?

back in Montana, the local county paid bounty on muskrats.

This last month squirrels got into our food supplies, chewing through the storage containers and ruined $400 or so of supplies. Would some here call me a "disrespectful piece of $#!+" if I killed those vermin? Just want to know, so I don't get in trouble with some ordinance up here that I have not heard about, or labelled a squirrel hater.

Besides the fact that I can't un-see those pictures of him (lovely) is that he was a renter (short term? Long term? Not clear), not on his own property and likely just shooting into the trees hoping to randomly hit something.

I'm pretty sure it's illegal to do that in someone else's backyard. Pest control in your own yard is probably different and even a pellet gun can be illegal in certain circumstances (heck, even a toy gun if you modify it to look like a real one). I'd check that one with the sheriff.

Props to the rental management company for narc'ing on their own tenant. It was the responsible thing to do and demonstrates a care for their community.

Exactly! You can shoot a BB or Pellet gun in YOUR OWN backyard, but not cool to be doing it in your neighbor's yard, especially being a weekend rental. If someone wandered into my yard with what appeared to be a weapon, it probably wouldn't end well for them.

Yeah, that's what I'm sayin..... they're finally repopulating and some numb-nut is shooting them. At least go for the gophers.

I was a letter-carrier for over 27 years. We gave special attention to mail-in ballots, making sure they were processed faster. It is safe to send your ballots through the mail, I would not drop them off at any place other than the Post Office. Back then, we even took them without stamps when postage WAS required. If you are worried about dropping them in the out going mail, hand deliver it to a window clerk. I would not place anything with a check or very important mail in a outside box, always take it inside. If you have a mail box at home, do not put important outgoing mail in it to be picked up.📪

Me too, Sportj. I just received this text. "Your ballot for the 2020 General Election was received and will be counted. Thank you for voting!".

I got a text that my ballot was counted! Wahoo! So anyone else who is waiting (after using the drop boxes) it took exactly one week.

MtnTeach - the ballot boxes aren’t third party. They are official county elections office drop boxes.

Dropped off mines directly at the post office, don't need a 3rd party. Ballottrax worked fine for me!

7:30 a.m. Tues - given to mail lady at Crestline Post Office
8:02 a.m. Wed - notified by ballottrax that my ballot had been received by USPS
1:16 p.m. Wed - notified my ballot had been received by SB Registrar of Voters

USPS worked fine!

I dropped my ballot in the dropbox at the Crestline library a couple of weeks ago, it took about a week for ballot tracker to notify me that my ballot had been received and counted.

Yes, I was so politely informed by the Big Bear Postmaster that putting anything in the box outside is no guarantee it will get processed. They even tried to extend that non-responsibility to the box inside the PO. So basically he was telling me my mail no matter where I put it, will maybe get delivered, depending on how the post office feels that day. Amazing.

USFS: Volunteers this past Saturday covered 488 graffiti tags, took out 5 illegal campfire rings and removed 187 pounds of trash along Deep Creek and Hesperia Falls.

The forest partnered with the @MojaveDesertLT and the US Army Corps of Engineers.

Sport, I believe the only couple I asked said 4 days but I'll text them and ask again. All were impressed with the tracking service.

I dod, however, use the indoor drop at the Post Office rather than an outside box.

Official Absentee ballot instructs us to go to SBCountyElections.com. I dropped mine on 10/17, it was received at the SB County registrar on 10/20.

Casadelgado - Did they say how long it took for them to show up as received?

Dave - ha ha I don't know why I assumed you dropped them off last Monday! Keep me posted if yours is updated any time soon.
