Man Arrested in Red Bluff Hours After Release from Redding Jail

Garland "Res Dog" Spencer

Hours after his release from the Shasta County Jail in Redding, a 47-year-old transient was booked into the Tehama County Jail for allegedly stealing alcohol from a Red Bluff convenience store, jail records show.

Originally arrested Wednesday after using a knife to slash the face of Brenda Wilson during an altercation in Redding’s Library Park, Redding Police Officers also found Garland “Res Dog” Spencer in possession of a controlled substance when they later located him at the Greyhound Bus Depot.

Although the case was still submitted to the Shasta County District Attorney’s Office for review, Spencer was released from jail when investigators learned he may have acted in self-defense.

Later that evening, officers from the Red Bluff Police Department were dispatched to the USA Gasoline on Main Street, where a man had reportedly just stolen alcohol from the gas station’s convenience store, the Red Bluff Daily News reported. Authorities found Garland Spencer nearby and Officer Baxter placed him under arrest for the alleged burglary.

Spencer faces charges of second degree burglary, possession of an open container, and failure to appear after a written promise. Bail was set at $51,241.
