The following is a press release 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 09-19-2021 at about 5:51 AM Mendocino County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to a possible robbery which had occurred at a location on Reservation Road in Laytonville, California.

Deputies were advised the suspects had left the location in a black sedan. 

Upon arrival, Deputies learned an adult female had cashed a large check on 09-17-2021 in the presence of Jacob Sanderson.

On 09-19-2021 in the early morning hours, Miranda Mullins walked into the adult female’s residence without knocking and demanded money.

Mullins appeared to have a weapon and the adult female feared for her safety and gave Mullins a sum of money prompting Mullins to leave the residence.  Mullins got into a black sedan which was later found to have been occupied by Sanderson and another subject. 

Deputies issued a Stop-And-Arrest BOLO for Mullins for robbery by force or fear (212.5 PC) and burglary (459 PC). 

Mullins was subsequently located and arrested in Willits, California. Sanderson was also located in Willits and arrested for conspiracy (182 PC). 

Mullins and Sanderson were booked into the Mendocino County Jail where they both separately were to be held in lieu of $150,000.00 bail.
