Second Chance Pet Rescue is a non-profit animal rescue organi- zation that has performed pet res- cue and adoption services at the City Animal Shelter location. Corning and Second Chance would like to formalize the ex- isting relationship by way of an agreement that sets forth each party's responsibilities, terms and conditions, according to the agenda report. The Corning Po- lice Department had previously enlisted the assistance of Second Chance Pet Rescue in 2002. The city had recently hired four part-time animal care techni- cians, said Lisa Linnet, city clerk. The city is now, however, down CORNING City to seek animal shelter services By Chip Thompson @editorchip on Twitter RED BLUFF The manager of a Red Bluff care facility has been arrested and charged with mul- tiple counts of theft for allegedly stealing from elderly residents of the facility. The Tehama County District Attorney Bureau of Investiga- tion began in April to investi- gate possible fiduciary abuse of an elderly couple that lived in the facility, which was not identified by name in a press release issued late Friday by District Attorney Gregg Cohen's office. It was discovered that the manager of the facility, Jenni- fer Lorraine Adams, a Red Bluff resident and longtime employee, had been writing checks to her- self and using the debit and credit card of the elderly cou- ple for roughly a two-year pe- riod, according to the release. During the investigation search warrants were executed at Ad- ams' home, the business where she worked along with her bank. During the service of the search warrant Adams' resi- dence, investigators located the credit card of a second victim from the same care facility and receipts showing the card had been used, the release said. The investigation showed that Ad- ams also had been using this credit card for personal gain. Investigators were able to ob- tain an arrest warrant for Ad- ams and arrested her on the war- rant at her home Friday, the re- lease said. The warrant was issued for five counts each of Theft from Elder or Dependent Adult, Grand Theft of Personal Property, Grand Theft and Theft. There are 12 special allega- tions of Aggravated White Col- lar Crime. Bail was set in the amount of $475,000, and Cohen said Ad- ams was in custody at the Te- hama County Jail. A source of bail motion will be filed, allowing Cohen's office to examine the source of any funds used to post bail to ensure they do not originate from the alleged thefts, Cohen said. Investigators were assisted in the investigation by officers from the Tehama County Sheriff's De- partment, TIDE Task Force and the Red Bluff Police Department.
