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 11-12-2021 at about 11:00 PM Mendocino County Sheriff’s Deputies conducted traffic stop on a vehicle being driven by Foley Azbill in the 36000 block of Highway 162 in Covelo, California.
When Deputies contacted Azbill they observed a marijuana smoking pipe, processed marijuana and odor of burnt marijuana.
A search was conducted of Azbill and the vehicle. Deputies found a large amount of suspect methamphetamine on Azbill’s person. The amount and way the methamphetamine was packaged lead Deputies to believe Azbill was going to sell the illicit drugs.
Azbill was booked into the Mendocino County Jail on the listed charges and was to be held in lieu of $50,000.00 bail.
