$10,000 reward offered to solve drive-by shootings
VALLEY SPRINGS, Calif. – Authorities are offering a $10,000 reward following a series of drive-by shootings in the Sierra foothills of Northern California.
Calaveras County sheriff’s Sgt. Dave Seawell says there have been 15 incidents in Valley Springs since Dec. 17. No injuries have been reported but the random shots have been fired at vehicles and into homes.
The latest shooting happened Thursday as a man was driving home and passed a white pickup truck with its high beams on.
Seawell says the driver didn’t hear gun shots at the time, but found a bullet hole in the driver’s side fender when he got home.
Authorities are looking for more information about the pickup truck. The community, about 60 miles southeast of Sacramento, is asking for help to solve the crimes.
