3 Redding Schools Locked Down While Fugitive Captured

Brandon Scott Paillon

Officers of the Redding Police Department responded to an apartment at 3600 Churn Creek Road in Redding regarding a family with small children living without electricity. Upon officers’ arrival, they attempted to make contact with the occupants. Wanted fugitive Brandon Scott Paillon, 24 years of Redding, fled out the back of the apartment. Paillon was wanted for a parole violation and was in the company of a 16-year-old runaway female. Paillon is a documented gang member out of Orland, CA.

Citizens in the area reported Paillon was running northbound along I-5 toward our local schools. Enterprise High School, Parsons Middle School, and Rother Elementary were placed into a lockdown status by school resource officers within minutes. The California Highway Patrol also assisted in locating Paillon. Their helicopter was instrumental in providing officers with a general area where Paillon was last seen.

K9 Tarro and his handler, Officer R. Ellis, with the assistance of Redding Police Department’s Parole and Probation Unit, isolated an area of thick brush where Paillon was believed to be hiding. The K9, Tarro, alerted to Paillon, who reached behind his back as he prepared to run. Tarro was unleashed and took Paillon into custody. Paillon was treated at a local hospital and booked into the Shasta County Jail.

These types of incidents cannot be handled as quickly and safely without the continued teamwork of local law enforcement, the good citizens, and our talented school administrators.

    Love it when the K-9 gets the bad guy. Better yet when they have to be treated for a dog bite. Way to go Tarro and Officer Ellis! If I was still there, you'd get a doggie biscuit. Oh no, I got in trouble for doing that….I think a nice pat on the head would be better!

    Good work by all. The dog was great also. We do not want any gang members here. Almost impossible to keep them out, but we must be vigilent. Send them to Elba!
