Butte County (CA) Man Stole Cal Fire Equipment

Butte County sheriff’s deputies are asking for the public’s help finding a man accused of stealing from a Cal Fire station.

Freidrich “Fred” Muniaerts, 44, is accused of taking $4,000 worth of equipment and supplies from Cal Fire Station No. 25, located on Durham Pents Road near Butte College.

Muniaerts was identified as the suspect after deputies reviewed surveillance video from the fire station.

When officers went to his home, they found the stolen items, as well as stolen equipment from a May 2015 robbery. Deputies said personal items stolen from other areas in Butte County were also recovered.

Muniaerts, however, was not located at the home.

Deputies are asking anyone with information about Muniaerts’ whereabouts to call the Butte County Sheriff’s Department at 530-538-7322.
