Parole compliance check leads to two arrests

The Lassen County Sheriff’s Office conducted a joint one-day operation to check on the compliance of sex offenders currently on parole in the county.  The LCSO partnered with the California Department of Justice, California State Parole and the Department of Homeland Security to carry out the operation.

The compliance checks were conducted on Jan. 18, where 10 registered sex offenders currently on parole were contacted.  The sweep resulted in two arrests for parole violations and other charges are pending from the sweep.  Digital evidence was seized and Cal-DOJ will be examining the evidence for other possible charges.

As a result of the sweep, Chet Lowry, 41, of Susanville was arrested for having been a parolee at large.  Lowry had a warrant issued for his arrest on Jan. 7, 2020 for failing to register upon release from custody as well as failing to meet with his parole officer and receive an ankle monitor.  Lowry was located in a remote location in Termo.  The LCSO utilized a side by side with tracks to access the snowed in remote location in order to serve the warrant.

Also arrested during the sweep was Daniel Brewer, 29, of Standish. Brewer was found to be in violation of his parole when he was contacted outside a residence in Susanville.  Brewer was in possession of a smart phone with internet access and social media, which are both violations of the terms of his parole.

The LCSO would like to thank Cal-DOJ, State Parole and Homeland Security for their cooperation in this operation.
