Teen Burglar Sentenced To 13 Years For Shooting

A teenager who shot at a Rancho Tehama man who was chasing him after a burglary has been sentenced. Nicholas Chavez asked his neighbor Harold Robinson to look after his place while he was away. On the morning of March 27th Robinson saw Chavez’s Ford F350 pickup leaving and he followed it, soon realizing it was being stolen. He called Tehama County Sheriff’s Deputies as he continuing following his friend’s stolen truck to Flores Avenue, even though the truck’s passenger, 19-year-old Benjamin Pierce-Flores, was shooting at him, firing five rounds from a rifle. The driver of the truck, 24-year-old Danielle Ede, reportedly made an effort to foil the pursuer as well, driving the big truck over the front of Robinson’s car and ramming it four times. The stolen truck took plenty of damage from the encounter and became stuck in the Flores Avenue area. Ede fled along with Pierce-Flores, who took the rifle with him. The fugitive couple was eventually found at a home in Proberta, and ID’d by Robinson. Chavez’s truck was packed with about $9,000 worth of his things that had been taken from his house. Ede’s court case is still pending. Pierce-Flores pleaded to 3 felonies and has been sentenced to 13 years 4 months in state prison, plus he must pay restitution.
