Last week, Madera County sheriff’s detectives served a search warrant at a residence on Brookhill Road in southeastern Madera County. Detectives had followed up on a report of a stolen boat motor and received information that it may be at the Brookhill residence.
During the course of the investigation, detectives learned that the resident, Jeremy Huff, was a convicted felon who had been sentenced to prison for grand theft and receiving stolen property in 2004. It was also learned that he was an avid hunter and in possession of numerous firearms. Under California and federal law, felons are not allowed to possess firearms.
During the search of Huff’s residence, the stolen boat motor was located along with 24 firearms, ammunition reloading equipment, and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition. Several game animals were also found in his freezer; a California Fish and Wildlife Game Warden came to the scene and determined that Huff did not have the proper tags for hunting the animals.
Huff was not at his house when the warrant was served, but returned to the area while detectives were searching and was taken into custody. Huff was booked into the Madera County Department of Corrections for being in possession of stolen property and being a felon in possession of firearms.
