The following is a press release from the Willits Police Department. The information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty:

Shannah Griffith [Mugshot from the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office Booking Logs]

On 03-04-2022, at approximately 9:38 AM Deputies from the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a reported burglary in the 700 block of Watson Road in Ukiah, California.

Deputies contacted the homeowner who discovered someone had broken into his home.

The homeowner came home and observed several miscellaneous items scattered outside of his residence. The homeowner entered his residence and found additional items scattered inside. Fearing someone might still be inside the residence, the homeowner called the Sheriff’s Office.

When Deputies arrived, they entered the residence to check if anyone was still inside and located Shannah Griffith trying to flee the residence. Griffith was immediately detained outside of the residence and found to be in possession of items belonging to the homeowner. 

Sheriff’s Office Dispatch advised Griffith had an active misdemeanor warrant for her arrest for 11350(A) HS (Possession of a Controlled Substance).

Inside the residence it was apparent someone had bathed and left a pile of trash behind. Griffith was placed under arrest for 459/460(a) PC [First Degree Burglary] and the misdemeanor 11350(A) HS arrest warrant.

Griffith was subsequently booked into the Mendocino County Jail where she was to be held in lieu of $20,000.00 bail.



  1. Lock up all the homeless in FEMA camps? It costs more to hold people in jail than to house them but its taxpayers money so who cares
