BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — A man was in court Thursday for allegedly stealing diesel fuel and appliances from houses under construction in the Rosedale area.

The Rural Crimes Investigation Unit arrested 38-year-old William Crunk last month. In addition to stolen property, investigators said they found guns and ammunition, as well as drugs and drug paraphernalia in both Crunk's residence and vehicle.

Crunk is charged with 14 felonies, including burglary, and being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, according to the Kern County court website.
