Orland man violated protective order
A Orland man is behind bars on a felony stalking charge after he violated a protective order given to his former wife.
Allen Hurst Powers, 56, who claims he is homeless but from the Orland area, was arrested at 1:45 p.m. Tuesday while out on bail from a battery.
Powers was arrested by sheriff's Deputy Kristy Burns and her K-9 dog Zephyr on July 29 in the 6500 block of County Road 18.
At that time, an emergency protective order was obtained from a Glenn County Superior Court judge and served on Powers, sheriff's officials said.
Powers was able to post bond on $20,000 bail and was released from custody.
According to Sheriff Larry Jones, Powers was still trying to contact his former wife and was reportedly stalking her when he was arrested Tuesday.
Powers was in the 1200 block of Rail Road Avenue, south of Orland, when he was picked by Deputy Zachary Lopetguy.
Powers was booked into Glenn County Jail on suspicion of committing a felony while out of bail, contempt of court and stalking.
His bail was set at $250,000.
