June 28, 2021
Kern County Sherriff Department
Case # - 2021-00085441
UNIQUE IDENTIFIERS - a brand symbol Star D in the center of the sign. 2. was the faded remains of TEHACHAPI CA and under the brand the faded remains of CAMERON CANYON ROAD. Upper right corner was a NO Trespassing sign

Here is my account of the following items which took place sometime on June 28,2021: 1. On the main gate to my properties was a 4 ft by 8 ft weathered plywood sign bolted to the gate and dating back to the 1960’s. Where on the sign was the faded remains of the ranch name. The ranch was named Star D and in the center of the sign was the faded remains of the brand. 2. In the left corner was the faded remains of TEHACHAPI CA and under the brand was the faded remains of CAMERON CANYON ROAD. On the upper right corner was a NO TRESSPASSING sign I had affixed to the sign. 3. The value of the old sign is likely between $250.00 and maybe as high as $500.00. It was not in good shape but more an old collectable in the eyes of the thief(s). 4. The sign was replaced with a brand new 4 ft by 8 ft by 5/16 inch thick piece of plywood in primarily the same location as the one that was removed. 5. I called a few neighbors to see if anyone had seen activity at the gate but to no avail. 6. I then reported the petty theft to the Kern County Tehachapi Sherriff substation. 7. A Deputy took the description and report of the sign and its estimated value. 8. The case number assigned to the report is: 2021-00085441
