Two East Bay residents are wanted in connection with the theft of more than $1.25 million worth of gold items stolen from the Siskiyou County Courthouse more than a year ago, sheriff’s officials said. Gold, jewelry and other artifacts were taken from a display case at the courthouse at 311 Fourth St. in Yreka on Jan. 31, 2012.
Arrest warrants have been issued for David Dean Johnson, 49, of El Cerrito, and Scott Wayne Baily, 51, of El Sobrante, who are the primary suspects in the heist, sheriff’s officials said.
Last Thursday, Siskiyou County sheriff’s detectives were in the Bay Area trying to locate the two men. They were not found, but evidence was seized, sheriff’s officials said. On Jan. 15 of this year, deputies served search warrants at homes in Shasta County and in El Cerrito and El Sobrante, sheriff’s officials said.
