Late Night Investigation of Parked Vehicle Results in Parolee Possessing Meth and Woman Giving False Name


The following is a press released issued by 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 03-02-2021 at 2:35 A.M., a Deputy from the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office was on patrol in the 6200 block of North State Street in Calpella, California.

During this time, the Deputy observed a vehicle parked in front of a closed business.

The Deputy conducted a vehicle check and contacted a male (Joshua Murray) and a female (later identified as being Caytlin Collicott).

The Deputy requested Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office Dispatch to conduct a warrants and probation/parole check on both subjects. Dispatch advised Murray was on active CDC Parole out of Lake County and the female had no warrants or probation.

During a search of the vehicle, two glass bulbous methamphetamine smoking pipes [11364(a) HS], a controlled substance [11350(a) HS], and a female’s purse was located.

Inside the purse, the Deputy located personal identification for Collicott. The Deputy used the patrol vehicle computer system and located a prior booking photograph of Collicott.

The Deputy determined Collicott had given a false name and date of birth which was a real person [529 PC].

The Deputy requested Dispatch check Collicott for warrants and probation/parole status. Dispatch advised Collicott was on active CDC Parole.

Murray and Collicott’s Parole Officers were contacted and placed CDC Parole Holds on both of them. The Deputy arrested both Murray and Collicott without incident.

Murray was subsequently booked into the Mendocino County Jail where he was to be held in lieu of $25,000.00 bail.

Collicott was subsequently booked into the Mendocino County Jail where she was to be held in lieu of $25,000.00 bail.

I like to think of myself as a journalist for the everyman. Journalism has become a craft practiced by the urban elite. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at if you know a story that needs told.
