Yesterday's activity north of Laytonville appears to have been in response to calls about armed men robbing 20lbs of weed. Law enforcement is now searching for, and asking for tips that could lead to the capture of the four cannabis burglars.
Without making any formal announcement, and without notifying all of the county supervisors, the sheriff’s office sent a letter sometime last week that appears to suspend substantial portions of the most recent set of rules for cannabis cultivation.
The chase began because the suspect's car was believed to be involved in multiple burglaries. Speeds of over 100mph were reached, the Willits PD deployed a spike strip, the suspect fired on police, police did NOT return fire, and the chase was ended on foot.
The MCSO has released more information on the suspect in last night's chase, who is alleged to have engaged in multiple mail thefts. And law enforcement urges everyone to keep an eye on their mail, especially on lonely rural roads, this holiday season.
