Gridley-Biggs Police arrested Jeffery William Brown, Jr., 49, of Gridley on February 24, 2018 at 5:04 p.m., on a Placer County Warrant for several sex crimes committed in the late 1990's. Brown's warrant stemmed from a significant amount of leg work by Placer County Detectives to build a case sufficient to arrest Brown.

This cold case file had very few leads for detectives to follow originally. Brown was booked into Placer County Jail with bail set at $2.52 million according to the Placer County Sheriff's Office.
