The continuing threats of violence in response to the corruption at the Picayune Rancheria is getting costly for the citizens of Madera County and Fresno. AVOID the Chukchansi Gold Casino.
Madera County Sheriff John Anderson has reduced the level of patrols at the Picayune Rancheria of Chukchansi Indians' tribal office complex near Coarsegold.
Deputies are going from a tactical alert to regular patrols of the area, said spokeswoman Erica Stuart.
Law enforcement officers have been on a tactical alert since Tuesday, when up to 100 officers were outside the office complex to ensure the safety of people living and working in the area.
Deputies from Fresno and Mariposa counties assisted Madera deputies, along with Fresno, Madera, Chowchilla and Clovis police.
