DMT, Heroin, Oxycodone, Meth, Long Guns: Two Ukiah Women Arrested After Investigators Find Stockpile


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

On 11/26/2022, a 37-year-old female resident of Ukiah reported that someone had broken into her unlocked vehicle and stolen items from inside of it. The victim reported that among the items was a credit card,  which she was monitoring as it was used at three different Ukiah businesses. The businesses were contacted and were able to provide surveillance of the subject who was using the card. During the investigation a recent use of the card was reported at Walmart, 1155 Airport Park Blvd. Officers responded and quickly located two  females, Angela Rivera and Veronica Orozco inside of the store.  

Ultimately both subjects made incriminating statements and witnesses and video showed them entering the store and using the card together. A search of their persons led to the discovery of about 6.4grams of methamphetamine, 4 bank cards, a club card, and a CA driver license all with different people’s names. Stolen property from the vehicle theft and a concealed dagger was also located during the initial search.  

Officers continued their investigation and developed cause to search the location that the suspects were staying at, 650 S. State St, The Sunrise Inn. A warrant was prepared and the Mendocino Major Crimes Task  Force (MMCTF) came out to assist in the investigation. The search of the room led to the discovery of evidence tying them to the theft and additional crimes. Evidence included shaved keys for stealing vehicles,  rifle and shotgun ammunition, drugs, drug paraphernalia, and indicators of drug sales such as scales and  baggies. The drugs seized as a result of this investigation included about 75.4 grams of suspected methamphetamine, 16.7 grams of suspected heroin, 10 x M30 suspected fentanyl pills, 6 x 5mg suspected  Oxycodone pills, and 1.6 grams of suspected Dimethyltryptamine (DMT).  

Rivera and Orozco were booked at the Mendocino County Jail for the listed violations. Rivera is currently being held with a bail amount of $75,000.00. Orozco is currently being held with a bail amount of  $50,000.00. Ukiah PD would like to extend gratitude to the local businesses and cooperating agencies.  Collaborative efforts help Ukiah PD to better serve the community, thank you.

  1. You know it’s about time upd starts doing something about the drug addictions in our communities here in Ukiah especially in the homeless community one and one people should be going out to the homeless drug addicts and alcoholics and working with them placing them all inside housing no matter what financial situation there in they need to be inside and worked with whatever they are to help them get off the drugs and alcohol whether they like it or not in order to have a safe and decent healthy community we must stand up against all these odds if they don’t accept the help of being clean and sober and living in our community then they should be in prison until they change their minds not let out on the society to run wild and rampant to rape steel and pillage whatever they can whatever they need without any consequence please it may sound inhumane but what is humane about a homeless man or woman running down the street screaming and yelling at the top of her lungs obscenities with children playing around what’s going to happen when they decide to kidnap one of the children to make some money what’s going to happen when one of your children get hooked on heroin or meth because you didn’t do anything about it. It’s time people just stand up and fight back like our ancestors did and not give demon domination over all of us that’s exactly what we’re doing when we don’t do nothing about it.. I seen all horrific things happen in the homeless community being homeless for 8 years myself I saw the ugliness the death and the evil that hides lurking behind your bushes under your Bridges and places you could not even imagine even in the sewers they are living now. We need to get on our knees and ask God really ask God to come down and help us because on our own we’re not going to be able to handle nothing without having to actually exterminate how extreme is that not really when it comes to defending your family and your loved ones think about it God bless you all I know I’m not crazy no I’m not on drugs I’ve been cleaning sober for 26 years hallelujah for the glory of God pray for me that I stay strong and pray that our community starts standing up and fighting back together we can do this not alone don’t even try anything alone God bless you all

  2. And as far as the police are concerned needing more money and the poor taxpayers paying money who do you think the taxpayers are once the people get clean and sober they become taxpayers as well so whoever you are speaking about do not give the poor money excuse me why don’t you change that that sentence and help the poor get educated get jobs get housing and start becoming vital parts of the community instead of putting them down you want to be helpful stop your negativity it’s not true once an addict always an addict but it also takes community the caring about these people it could be your brother or sister your mother your father your aunt your niece your nephew you know think about it whoever you’re are Mr goody two shoes I think about it. I bet you do nothing but sit back and judge and criticize and be a hypocrite.. well you’re nobody’s judge is that judgment to God if you know who God is and if you don’t I feel sorry for you but one day you will understand without Love in our community we will not survive when we feel our communities full of hate mistrust and judgment like we do we will definitely regret that consequences that come out of hateful comments hateful duties that you do against any kind of people justremember you will be judged especially when you’re not forgiving or helping the downtrodden the poor the underprivileged are you doing that are you showing enough love are you giving out love that needs that needs to be given whatever it is that needs it or are you that hateful person God bless you all and may one day you will see the light

  3. People need a reason to want to be clean and sober. We need hope. Housing prices meed to come down so we can afford to have a small yard to put our hands on the dirt and grow a small garden. A place that our children can go play outside safely with our family pets. Nothing extravagant, just a little something to work towards. Everybody deserves that. I mean sheesh, we can’t even die for free! Burial plots or cremation should be free. And….we need to honor God once again in our communities. Without God we are nothing and things will only get worse.

    ???As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

    • These are some classy ladies. Not sorry for how they live only sorry they got caught. We can do without them for sure

  4. When it’s dudes in the picture everyone cries about mental health and addiction. These women get called bitches and scrote scrunts. Betcha anything these women were abused/neglected/raped as kids. The real privilege in life is having great parents. If you do, count your blessings.
    These ladies sound industrious as fuck. It’s too bad they have nothing else.

    • Gotta want better for yourself if you are content in the sewer In the sewer you will stay. Im one of 5 kids that grew up at the hands of a violent molester that dsnt give me the rite to victemize anyone else. I got a job and scratched my way to a reasonable life

  5. “Resentment is the most precious flower of poverty.” Carson McCullers, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. Treat people like animals and then wonder why they act like animals. It is a crime to be poor in America.
