Authorities converge on pair inside local motel room
A Shasta County man suspected of murdering his son was arrested at a Crescent City motel on Sunday evening.
Bradley Weber Sr., 52, is alleged to have shot his son, Bradley Weber Jr., 33, the night of Nov. 2 at their home in Igo, 9 miles west of Redding, authorities said.
Weber Jr. was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at a Shasta County hospital, authorities said.
It's suspected Weber Sr. fled the area and made his way to Del Norte County within days of the killing, said Del Norte County sheriff's Commander Bill Steven.
Weber had connections and relatives here, Sheriff Dean Wilson said.
Authorities looked for Weber at a few Del Norte locations over the past few days, but to no avail, Steven said.
On Friday, authorities became privy to information that narrowed Weber's location to within Crescent City, Steven said.
On Sunday, an exact location was learned to be the Penny Saver Inn, 655 L St.
Authorities located a room reserved by Weber's girlfriend, Pamela Glasgow, 57, of Anderson.
9 p.m., a contingent that included members of the Sheriff's Office SWAT
Team, Crescent City Police Department, California Highway Patrol, Del
Norte Search and Rescue, Crescent City Volunteer Fire Department and
Crescent Fire Protection District, as well as federal marshals and
Shasta County authorities, converged on the scene and ordered the
suspects to come out of their motel room.
Glasgow was the first person to emerge and was arrested on suspicion of being an accessory to murder, Steven said.
Several minutes later, around 9:30 p.m., Weber came out and was arrested on suspicion of murder, Steven said.
Weber was booked he lost consciousness related to a large quantity of
alcohol he consumed during the final minutes before his arrest, Steven
Weber was transported to Sutter Coast Hospital, where he remains and is expected to recover, Steven said.
He will likely be extradited to Shasta County within the next two weeks, Steven said.
