This is a press release from 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 05-22-2021 at approximately 3:03 P. M., a Deputy from the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office was on patrol in the 7700 block of North State Street in Redwood Valley, California.
During this time, the Deputy saw a female and a male subject talking in a parking lot.
Once the two parties separated, the Deputy initiated a consensual contact with the female to try and find out if she knew the identity of the male subject she had been talking to as observed.
The Deputy believed the male subject may have had active warrants for his arrest and was trying to confirm his identity.
During the conversation and subsequent investigation, the female provided the name of Jane Smith and a date of birth. A check of this name and date of birth with dispatch revealed the female had most likely provided a false name as the name did not produce a return.
Upon further questioning, the female provided two other names and dates of birth which also did not provide a return.
Believing the female may be wanted for a crime or have warrants for her arrest, the Deputy asked the female if she was providing false names because she had warrants for her arrest.
The female admitted she probably had a warrant for her arrest out of Sacramento County (California) for a domestic violence incident.
Once the Deputy learned the female may have a warrant for her arrest, the Deputy advised the female she was detained and requested her true name and date of birth.
The female provided another three false names and dates of birth before finally providing her true name of Jade Anderson with her correct date of birth.
The Deputy checked this name and date of birth with dispatch and was informed Anderson had a Felony 3056 PC Parole Warrant for her arrest for 192 PC (Manslaughter) out of Sacramento County, California.
Anderson was placed under arrest for the above warrant without incident.
Anderson was subsequently booked into the Mendocino County Jail where she was to be held in lieu of a no bail status.
