Yuba County man accused of stealing metal from orchard

A 24-year-old man was arrested Monday night in connection with multiple metal thefts in Yuba County.

Yuba County Sheriff's deputies responded to the area of Dantoni Road and Simpson-Dantoni Road in Browns Valley after a property owner located a person who appeared to be trying to steal scrap metal from his orchard, according to a Sheriff's Department news release.

Deputies located the suspect vehicle after the driver dumped the metal and tried to leave the area.

The driver of the vehicle, Andrew Hanover, was already wanted in connection with a theft of more than $4,000 worth of property that occurred earlier this month, according to the news release. In the previous case, he was alleged to have stolen property from an orchard off Feather River Boulevard in West Linda.

Monday's investigation led to the recovery of nearly $3,000 worth of property, officials said.

Hanover was arrested on suspicion of grand theft and driving with a suspended license. He was booked into the Yuba County Jail.
