Steve Peay, of the Plumas County Sheriffs Office, said that the man arrested in Oroville was in a possession of a handgun that was registered to a La Porte cabin owner. When that owner visited his cabin, he discovered that it had been broken into and a number of items had been taken. Peay said that deputies and detectives sent to La Porte discovered that at least 24 cabins in the Silver Tip Springs subdivision had been burglarized. "They kicked in doors, broke windows," Peay said. Items that were taken ins "The suspect from last year's burglaries is currently in our county iail." Greg Hagwood Plumas County Sheriff include televisions, guns, tools, quads, a snowmobile trailer, stereo equipment, liquor, food and household items. Sheriff Greg Hagwood said that he is hopeful that serial numbers provided by cabin owners will help his office fred those responsible. That same subdivision was hit last year as well, which led Hagwood and District Attorney David Hollister to travel to La Porte for a town hall meeting last Labor Day. They met with cabin owners to discuss ways to enhance security. This time there were more break-ins and the investigation is underway, but detectives can eliminate' at least one individual. "The suspect from last year's burglaries is currently in our county jail," Hagwood said. Last year, surveillance video helped lead to the U rg arl suspect's arrest, and both Peay and Hagwood hope that once all of the homeowners have been interviewed, some evidence will be uncovered "I am so sad for the homeowners up there," Hagwood said. "And I know that they are angry." Since the burglaries, deputies have been patrolling the La Porte area looking for more signs of break-ins. There currently isn't a deputy based in La Porte, and it has been a challenge to provide regular patrols because of staffing. "I've hired some new deputies, but I've lost two," Hagwood said. Anyone in the La Porte area who sees suspicious activity or vehicles, should attempt to take down license plate numbers and contact the Plumas County Sheriffs Office at 283-6300. Not th bank r The man seen at the Quincy Safeway last week was not the suspect sought in a string of robberies committed throughout the North State, according to Steve Peay, a detective with the Plumas County Sheriffs Office. Peay said he contacted the man who had been identified as the possible bank robber and he is a local resident, not the man who most recently is suspected of robbing banks in Durham and Weaverville on May 10. The department has received other tips of sightings, none of which have turned out to be the suspect. However, Peay encourages anyone who thinks that they have seen the suspect to contact the sheriffs office at 283-6800.

Pinker's exhaustive study on the decline of violence challenges many of the current assumptions about the modern world. Three speakers will explore this topic.
