Residents speak out against Merced Sheriff’s Dept. probe of private citizens

A handful of Merced County residents voiced outrage Tuesday over a decision by Sheriff Tom Cavallero to examine the backgrounds of three private citizens after they spoke out repeatedly at recent Board of Supervisors’ meetings. In a memo obtained by the Merced Sun-Star, the sheriff detailed information about the three individuals to county supervisors, County Executive Officer Jim Brown and County Counsel James Fincher.
