NPU Arrest Nevada Fugitive On January 18th, 2017, the Nevada Division of Investigations contacted the Redding Police Department regarding one of their Top Ten Most Wanted fugitives, Troy Michael Bliefert. Bliefert was wanted for two felony counts of selling controlled substances and had been evading capture since June of 2014. Bliefert ultimately fled the state of Nevada and was recently found to have associates in the Redding area. RPD’s Neighborhood Police Unit was tasked with investigating this lead. On January 19th, Officers from the Neighborhood Police Unit initiated a surveillance operation at multiple locations. Eventually, a residence in the 5000 block of Huntington Dr. was identified as a location the fugitive may be frequenting. After several hours, Officers determined that Bliefert arrived at the location. The residence was surrounded and Bliefert was confronted by officers in the back yard. He offered no resistance and was safely taken into custody. Bliefert was booked at the Shasta County Jail where arrangements will be made for his extradition to Nevada for criminal proceedings.

A message from Chief Robert F. Paoletti
I am honored to be the Chief of Police for the City of Redding and commit to you that I will ensure the standards of this department remain high. We will continually seek to improve our performance and level of service, despite the challenges we all face.
I ask each of you to please drive safely as it is a great responsibility. The Redding Police Department will continue to work tirelessly to enforce safe driving habits, but it is ultimately a community responsibility. Safe driving prevents collisions, and the injuries they cause. Please drive the speed limit, obey traffic control devices and limit distractions while driving.
As resources have become restricted due to the economy, it becomes even more imperative for communities to communicate with the police department and each other. Neighborhood Watch and Business Watch programs are invaluable tools for bringing communities together in a concerted effort to recognize and report potential criminal conduct. Crime prevention is the key to our success at this time. We are not only challenged by reduced staffing levels, but also limited jail space and the negative effects of prison realignment. We can no longer take for granted the safety of our property. We must be diligent to keep a watchful eye for our safety and the safety of others.
