TCSO Ag Detectives Track Down Porta Potty Thief


Around 11 a.m. Tuesday, TCSO Deputies were called to the rural area south of Earlimart for stolen agricultural equipment.

When Deputies arrived, they found multiple items stolen from a Kern County Farm Labor company, including a shade trailer and a Porta-Potty trailer worth about $3,800. 

Deputies tracked down the suspect, 43-year-old Isreal Barraza, who was in the process of repurposing the stolen equipment. 
This case remains an active investigation and it is possible the suspect is involved in other Ag-related thefts. Anyone with more information is encouraged to contact Detective R. Pugh the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office (559-733-6218) or anonymously through our TIPNOW system at TCSO@ TIPNOW.COM.
