On 05-20-2022 at approximately 9:30 P.M., Deputies from the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office were informed of an armed robbery at a business that had occurred in the city of Cloverdale within the last hour.
Cloverdale is located in Sonoma County and is just south of the Mendocino County line along Highway 101.
It was believed the suspects were from Mendocino County and had fled back to Mendocino County after committing the armed robbery.
The information provided by the Cloverdale Police Department stated the suspects were armed with semiautomatic handguns with extended magazines and had fired multiple shots at an eyewitness who was trying to alert the clerk inside the business that she was about to be robbed.
Deputies received additional information on the possible whereabouts of the suspects and their vehicle. Deputies went to a residence in the 20000 block of Highway 128 in Yorkville (Mendocino County) and were able to confirm the suspect vehicle was indeed at the residence.
Cloverdale Police Department personnel obtained a search warrant for the residence which was later served by the Mendocino County Multi-Agency SWAT Team.
During the service of the search warrant the SWAT Team established a perimeter around the residence and announced their presence over a PA system. The SWAT team used verbal commands to get ten individuals (Two adults and eight juveniles) to peacefully exit the residence where they were detained.
During the subsequent search of the property, evidence was located in connection with the reported armed robbery.
A stolen firearm from a recent reported burglary in the Anderson Valley area was also located. This burglary case was being actively investigated by the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office.
Due to the above items being located and seized for evidence, Angel Marron and three juvenile males were arrested by Cloverdale Police Department personnel and were returned to Sonoma County for booking purposes.
