The following is a press release issued by the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office:
On 09-29-2020 at 5:07 PM the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office received a telephone call from a homeowner who resides in the 6000 block of Elledge Ranch Road in Ukiah, California.
The homeowner reported they had remotely witnessed, from a home security camera system, two suspects force entry into their home.
The homeowner also reported there was a 13 year-old male inside the home alone. This juvenile male immediately hid inside the residence as a result.
Deputies arrived at the residence approximately 12 minutes later and contacted the homeowner who had arrived at the home just prior to their arrival. A search of the home and property was unsuccessful in locating the suspects.
During a scene investigation it was determined the suspects stole over $50,000.00 in US currency and an undetermined amount of processed/packaged marijuana.
The suspects were described as wearing dark clothing, facial masks and fled on foot after the burglary. The suspects were believed to have later left the area in a blue or green Toyota Corolla sedan.
Deputies are conducting ongoing investigations into the reported burglary at this time.
