Remember Julia Langworthy?

She is the woman who, back on Wednesday, Dec. 30, was caught driving a Ford F250 that had been stolen from the Ord Bend boat launch parking area earlier in the morning. As soon as the theft at Ord Bend Park was reported on social media, Facebook users got busy.

They first reported seeing the truck at the Super Shopper at South and East Streets later in the morning of the theft. Security video shows the Ford parked in a space in front of the store.

The truck appeared to have only one occupant, and she is seen walking from the vehicle to the store, where she purchased cigarettes and a Red Bull.

A little later, around noon, the truck was spotted traveling east on Newville Road. Citizens followed it to the Speedway-Taco Bell-I-5 Café area of Hoff Way, and called law enforcement.

Officers arrived and ordered the driver, who was the sole occupant of the vehicle, out of the truck. A witness later commented on Facebook, “The lady ran as soon as the cop said get out of the truck. She was definitely a tweaker.”

Indeed, after her arrest, she was allegedly found to have a controlled substance in her possession, and was subsequently charged with bringing drugs into a jail, a felony. The driver was identified as Julia Christina Langworthy, 33.

Fast forward almost six months. A week ago today, on Saturday, June 19, at about 11:47 a.m., Debbie Brewster reported three people had just burglarized the shop on her property at 4694 County Road DD, west of Orland.

Brewster said a man and woman fled on a black motorcycle, north on County Road DD. Brewster stated the other a man was wearing plaid shorts, carrying a laundry basket, and walking north on Road DD.

Deputy Goodwin responded from Hamilton City. Orland Police Sergeant Cessna and Orland Police Officer Mills responded to assist.

Sergeant Cessna located the man walking on Road DD. He was identified as Sean Talmadge.

Deputy Goodwin contacted Debbie and Jeffrey Brewster.

After an on-scene investigation, it was discovered the people had been staying in an RV in the shop. The Brewsters had not been in the shop for three weeks and stated the RV had been parked there for over 10 years.

The matter was ultimately determined to be an issue of trespassing. The Brewsters did not wish to pursue the matter criminally.

Talmadge was released from the scene. By the way, a few weeks earlier, Talmadge was convicted in Glenn County Superior Court of felony identity theft and conspiracy to commit identify theft and found in violation of probation.

He was sentenced to 180 days in jail, drug court, and two years probation. Obviously, he had not yet begun to serve his sentence when the incident on County Road DD took place.

Late that afternoon, at about 4:48 p.m., Deputy Goodwin was dispatched back to 4694 County Road DD for a report of people trespassing on the property. During the previous call for service, deputies were able to locate one man, Sean Talmadge.

The other people were still outstanding. The reporting party described them as being associated with a gold sedan and provided a license plate number.

Sergeant Cessna with the Orland Police Department located the vehicle traveling on County Road 200, east of County Road E, and conducted a traffic stop. Deputy Goodwin responded to the scene of the stop.

The driver of the vehicle was identified as Tammi Dennis and the passenger was identified as Julia Langworthy. After an on-scene investigation, it was determined Langworthy and Dennis were not associated with the earlier incident and had stopped at the property for unrelated reasons.

A records check showed Langworthy had three arrest warrants out of Glenn County. She was arrested for the warrants and alleged possession of a controlled substance.

Langworthy was transported to the Glenn County Jail, where she was booked on charges alleging possession of a controlled substance (a misdemeanor), and warrants alleging disobeying a lawful order of the court (a felony), and disobeying a court order (a misdemeanor).

Bail for the fresh charge was set at zero, but total bail for the warrants was set at $42,000.

For her June 19 arrest, the jail’s news release gives Langworthy’s home address as 5140 Edith Avenue, Corning, while the Glenn County Sheriff’s log for the same date gives it as 6229 County Road 20, Orland. Some previous arrests say she was a transient, while others record her address as 3086 Highway 99, Artois.

In January of 2020, there was an incident at this last address involving Julia Langworthy and another person whose name appears in the above reports for June 19, 2021. The sheriff’s log entry from almost a year and a half ago reads:

“Deputies Tuma, McIntyre, an Zarate responded to 3086 Highway 99, Artois, for a reported disturbance. Deputies contacted Dorthea Langworthy, Julia Baker, Sean Talmadge and two children.”

Julia Baker is a name Julia Langworthy has used to identify herself.

The log item continues, “Talmadge was known to be on probation. Deputies conducted a compliance check and located drug paraphernalia underneath a mattress.

“Baker admitted to sleeping closest to where the paraphernalia was located. She was placed under arrest and transported to jail, where she was booked for alleged possession of drug paraphernalia.”

On April 29, 2020, Langworthy was booked into the jail on charges alleging using or being under the influence of a controlled substance (a misdemeanor), threatening to commit a crime with intent to terrorize (a felony), assault (a misdemeanor), and battery (a misdemeanor). She was taken into custody at the Artois address and her bail was set at $150,000.

On July 15, 2020, she was booked into the jail on charges alleging disobeying a court order (a misdemeanor). She was again arrested at the Artois address and her bail was set at zero.

Then, on Oct. 30, 2020, she was booked into the jail on charges alleging failure to appear after being released on her own recognizance (a felony). Her bail was set at $5,000 and she was taken into custody at Woodward Avenue and East Walker Street, Orland.

Glenn County Superior Court records from April, 2020, indicate that Langworthy was charged with carjacking (a felony) and misdemeanor battery. She was found guilty of battery, but the carjacking charge was dismissed.

As of late Saturday afternoon, June 26, 2021, Langworthy was still an inmate in the Glenn County Jail, one week after her arrest on June 19.
