RENO - The Fall motorcycle rally in Reno known as Street Vibrations rolled out of town Sunday night after a hugely successful and safe weekend of entertainment, poker runs and fun. It is estimated the 22nd annual rally brought in more than $114 million into the local economy through hotels, restaurants, gasoline and sales from the more than 50,000 participants.

On Thursday television star Erik Estrada served as grand marshal for the parade of police bikes to kick off the event. He later sat for a meet and greet where fans took photos and got autographs from the "CHiP's" star. Estrada wasn't the only entertainment, bands from across the country performed at the over ten stages through-out the rally in Reno, Carson City and Virginia City.

FIREBAUGH - Detectives with the Fresno County Sheriff’s Ag Task Force are searching for the person(s) who stole two tractors and used them to destroy thousands of dollars in crops. The crimes are believed to have occurred between the hours of 5:00 pm on September 15 and 7:00 am on September 16.

Around 8:00 am on September 16, 2016, deputies responded to a farm located at Brannon and Nees Avenues in Firebaugh. A New Holland T6020 tractor was stolen from this location. The suspect placed the tractor into “creeper mode” and then jumped out of the cab. Creeper mode allows the tractor to crawl at a slow speed and is often utilized when towing trailers carrying workers who are harvesting crops.
