Two Arrested for Stolen Property by the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office
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:
After arriving on scene, deputies learned that one of three residential units at the location was undergoing construction remodel and multiple construction tools being stored inside the unit were stolen sometime during the night. The total loss to the victim was estimated at $940.00.
During [a] preliminary investigation at the scene, deputies received information of a person of interest who was possibly responsible for the burglary and they located potential evidence left by the suspect(s).
The ongoing investigation eventually led deputies to a residence in the 29700 block of Highway 20 where they located and recovered a portion of the stolen property. Further information prompted deputies to respond to a residence in the 32800 block of Boice Lane where they contacted [31-Year Old Aaron Guillory from Fort Bragg].
During that contact deputies discovered more stolen property in Guillory’s possession and they were able to connect Guillory to the burglary through other supporting evidence. Guillory was arrested at the location for 460(a) PC, 182(a)(1) PC, and 496(a) PC.
Deputies then responded to a residence in the 16900 block of Ocean Drive where they contacted [23-Year Old Devan Tompkins from Fort Bragg]. During that contact deputies discovered the remaining stolen property in Tompkins possession and also connected him to the burglary through other supporting evidence. Tompkins was arrested at the location for 460(a) PC, 182(a)(1) PC, and 496(a) PC.
Both Guillory and Tompkins were transported to the Mendocino County Jail where they were booked and both held in lieu of bail set at $50,000.00.
