FRENCH CAMP (CBS13) — She lost her home to the Camp Fire, but today one woman has a reason to smile.
According to the San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded to a suspicious vehicle call in French Camp where they found a man sitting in a stolen car with a dog. Deputies identified the dog as Ocean, stolen along with the car from Oroville.
