On 03-04-2021 at about 2:15 PM, a Mendocino County Sheriff’s Detective and Mendocino County Probation Officers contacted Amber Ricetti in the 500 block of Low Gap Road in regards to a fraud investigation. 

The Sheriff’s Detective was aware Ricetti was on Mendocino County formal probation. 

The Sheriff’s Detective informed Ricetti he was going to conduct a probation search of her vehicle that was parked at the location.  Ricetti refused to cooperate by providing the keys to the vehicle and attempted to walk away.

Ricetti was eventually arrested for delaying and obstructing the duties of the Sheriff’s Detective to execute the probation search and for violating the terms of her probation. 

Ricetti was subsequently booked into the Mendocino County Jail on the listed charges.

In accordance with the COVID-19 emergency order issued by the State of California Judicial Council, bail was set at zero dollars and Ricetti was released after the jail booking process.
