Man pleads no contest after multiple weapons, drugs found on property, DA says

May 2—James Allen Ledbetter is about to be sentenced subsequent week after pleading no contest to a number of prices because of multiple firearms, drugs and different violations that had been reportedly found on his property in Loma Rica, the Yuba County District Attorney’s Office stated.

Yuba County District Attorney Clint Curry stated Ledbetter pled no contest on March 13 to “one felony count for being a felon in possession of firearms, a misdemeanor count for poaching, and a misdemeanor count for diversion of a streambed.”

That plea got here after a search led by California Department of Fish and Wildlife Officer Sean Pirtle at Ledbetter’s property on Los Verjeles Road in Loma Rica, Curry stated.

“During the search they discovered the rotting carcass of a buck that Ledbetter poached on December 8, 2023,” Curry stated in an e mail to the Appeal. “Officers discovered Ledbetter had a .22 caliber rifle with a homemade silencer, likely used to poach deer. Including the .22 caliber rifle and an ‘assault rifle,’ officers seized a total of 16 firearms and hundreds of rounds of ammunition. Multiple meth pipes were located on the property along with a small amount of suspected psilocybin mushrooms.”
