[UPDATE] ‘Ringleader’ of Marijuana Robbery Arrested, Said Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office

Trevor Jackson was arrested Saturday after a citizen tip. Jackson was described by the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office as the “ringleader” of a band of young men who attempted an armed robbery at a marijuana grow off Hwy 162 east of Willits about 2 a.m. on July 16.

“We’ve been looking for him in Redwood Valley,” explained Lt. Shannon Barney of the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office. “We’d been getting tips that he was driving around on stolen motorcycles.”

In addition, citizens complained that Jackson was burglarizing still more residences while armed. “He was seen multiple times with a long rifle,” Barney said.  “The community believed he was super dangerous.”

On Saturday, Barney said, a citizen called in another tip and deputies were nearby and able to quickly get Jackson surrounded. “He gave up without any issues,” Barney said.

Jackson will face charges in other cases, explained Barney. For earlier burglaries and for more recent ones. “We found him in possession of stolen property,” Barney said.

Since the initial investigation began in July, the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office has continued to investigate this case, identifying two additional suspects.

On 7/17/2017, Joshua Hanover, a 29 year old male who lives in the Redwood Valley area, was stopped on Highway 101 in Redwood Valley and arrested on an unrelated warrant from Sonoma County.  Subsequent to that arrest and this investigation Sheriff’s Detectives determined Joshua was a suspect in this robbery.  A case was submitted against him to the DA’s Office and he was subsequently charged with kidnapping for robbery and armed during the commission of a felony.  His bail was set at $525,000.

Detectives also identified Trevor Michael Jackson, 34, a transient in Redwood Valley as a suspect.  For approximately a month and a half, Mendocino County Sheriff’s Deputies and Allied Law Enforcement Agencies have been attempting to locate and arrest Jackson.  He has fled several times, on motorcycles and all terrain vehicles when deputies approach. On 08-26-17, at approximately 5:00 PM, based on a tip from a community member, Jackson was located hiding on a piece of property in the 4800 block of Black Bart Trail in Redwood Valley.

This case is still under investigation and Jackson is a suspect in numerous other thefts that have occurred in the area of Redwood Valley. Sheriff’s Detectives anticipate filing several additional cases with the DA’s Office for review of charges.  These charges will include motor vehicle theft, grand theft/possession of stolen property, weapons possession, and burglary charges.  Any persons with information about this case are encouraged to contact the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office.

Earlier Chapter:



  • Really? That’s his life? Riding around heavily armed on stolen motorcycles, his folks must be so proud.

  • What a jerk, I hope his slap on the wrist really stings!!!

  • He doesn’t look like a sucked up tweeker.

  • His parents passed away…another lost soul. Could be your brother, your cousin. .. Get a grip with the negativity…holier-than-thou jack wagons.

    • Is that a joke? he didn’t steal a candy bar or a car, he’s out actively armed robbing homes and people he could have killed someone so easily. millions of people lose loved ones ever year and you don’t see them out Pulling guns on people. NO EXCUSE!

    • Maybe you can go give him a hug. But me personally, I don’t feel sorry for people that go around menacing and thieving while heavily armed.

    • If he was my brother or cousin, I’d turn him in….before he killed someone, or got killed.

    • Really? Talk to anyone who went to school or grew up with him. His parents were his first victims, forced to watch him become a piece of shit beyond their control. He’s been caught numerous times on camera. He’s just lucky we didn’t catch him. He’s been running roughshod through redwood/potter valley since he was a child, with parents.
      All in all just a bad person and complete waste of space.

    • I don’t think you knew this malicious cretin; thank your lucky stars for that!

  • He looks like a jock

  • Smug little man. Goin’ down.😉

  • Bad actor all the way around. He and his pals have been terrorizing the hoods and hills for years. I hope they get him good this time and find some of his accomplices.

  • I have very much ill-will towards bully thieves like that guy ,and i hope he gets all the time in prison he deserves. The streets are going to be much safe for now.

  • Brains Wellington

    Just the sort of thug the DA goes easy on. Nothing to confiscate or extort. We’ll see.

  • This shit is very real. Thank you so much Mendo S.D!

  • Viking Pride, From your response it appears that you know him. Yes, it is sad his parents have passed. Yet, no one to me has responded as holier than though. Folks who have been harmed by the man’s choices and the rest of the folks have no respect for thieves. He is blessed no one chose to deal lethally with him. Hard time is ahead for the man and if you are a friend, then maybe you can give him compassion and insight into how his actions harmed others, and please realize that those of us who been ripped off and threatened by folks who have no compunction to make the choice to be a thug will have little sympathy for excuses made on behalf of those who live a life of crime.

  • He’s the one in trouble not his parents. Be upset with him fine. But don’t Bring his family down, his choices not theirs. All are so quick to judge on charges before people are actually convicted these days. Let the system do it’s job. He will get what’s coming to him what ever that maybe.

  • Thars a thing called work the world does not owe him shit if his parents passed away he probely had it made not saying he did but of he did it all went right in the crack pipe

  • I went to school with this guy, in Potter Valley. He’s been ripping people off for over 15 years.
