Jamestown, CA – Fearing a man might come back to harm them, an elderly couple in Jamestown called 911.
Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a home on Chicken Ranch Road around 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday and found a frightened 68-year-old woman and 62-year-old man. They told deputies that the house is 28-year-old Jeremy Barrineau’s grandmother’s and that he was not allowed there.
