As of 10:30 a.m., reports are emerging from Covelo residents of a significant law enforcement presence outside of Tri-Counties Bank in Covelo.
Upon inquiry with Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office Captain Greg Van Patten, he told us deputies have determined last night vandalism occurred to the front of the bank.
According to a spokesperson for the Tri-Counties bank, there are double doors at the bank. The vandal broke the first set of doors but did not enter through the second set of doors. Nothing was taken. The bank is currently closed but will reopen tomorrow, she said.
A video sent to us by a Covelo resident shows Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office and Tribal Police on scene at 76405 Covelo Rd.
