Multiple residents of Laytonville are reporting a large contingent of Fish and Wildlife vehicles this morning in and around Laytonville.
One resident reported 15-20 vehicles heading down Branscomb Road and then around eight heading up Spy Rock Road. Another resident received reports that Fish and Wildlife were sighted on Iron Peak Road and Registered Guest Road.
We reached out to Fish and Wildlife’s Public Information Officer Janice Mackay regarding the reports. She said she will be unable to ascertain the reason for Fish and Wild’s presence until this evening when personnel return from the field.
We checked in with Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Captain Greg Van Patten regarding the Fish and Wildlife presence. At this point, Captain Van Patten said he did not have any information regarding the convoy.
UPDATE 1:52 p.m.: Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Captain Greg Van Patten has confirmed that the County of Mendocino Marijuana Enforcement Team and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife are serving a search warrant in the Laytonville area this morning.
