Teen to face charges in theft of cop’s helmet

A Grass Valley teen has been charged in the theft of a Grass Valley motorcycle officer’s helmet.

The District Attorney’s Office has charged William Curtis, 18, with receiving stolen property and grand theft of personal property.

The helmet was stolen May 29 while the officer attended an educational DUI trial at Nevada Union High School.

A high-school student spotted the helmet on the back seat of an old Buick the day after the theft and tipped off police.

Police arrested Curtis and student Parker Brown while they attended class at the high school.

Brown was cited on suspicion of conspiring to commit a crime and released from police custody. Curtis was booked into jail and was released June 1 on his own recognizance, according to court records.

Curtis is scheduled to enter his plea at 1 p.m. June 14 in Nevada County Superior Court.
