This is a press release from the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office. The information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty:
On 03-26-2016 at approximately 9:15 AM, Deputies from the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a reported theft of mail in the area of the 16100 block of Ridgeview Road in Willits, California.
The caller reported that the occupants of a burgundy mini-van had stolen mail from their mailbox. The caller provided the Deputies with a direction of travel for the suspect vehicle.
As the Deputies responded to the area they observed two large piles of mail alongside the roadway which had already been discarded by the suspects.
The suspect vehicle was stopped by another responding Mendocino County Sheriff’s Deputy in the 2000 block of Muir Mill Road. It was occupied by Kiera Shed (driver), Justin Maxfield and Bradley Maxfield.
Inside the van were items of mail, credit cards, stolen checks with forged signatures, two methamphetamine smoking pipes and a prescription bottle containing a schedule IV controlled substance known as TRAMADOL.
Shed, Justin Maxfield and Bradley Maxfield were arrested for possession of stolen property, forgery, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a controlled substance, grand theft and petty theft.
They were transported to the Mendocino County Jail where each was to be held in lieu of $15,000.00 bail.
The investigation is ongoing as discarded as items of mail continue to be processed and additional victims are identified and contacted.
