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 12-23-2022 at approximately 1:41 A.M., Mendocino County Sheriff’s Deputies were patrolling the area of Brush Street (Ukiah, California) when a Deputy observed Kevin Worley driving a vehicle. The Deputy was familiar with Worley and knew him to have a suspended license and an active arrest warrant.
Worley had stopped and exited his vehicle before the Deputy was able to initiate a traffic stop. The Deputy subsequently contacted Worley in the 300 block of East Gobbi Street (Ukiah, California).
Worley was detained, and a records check confirmed the existence of an outstanding Mendocino County misdemeanor warrant for his arrest.
Just before Worley was placed under arrest, the Deputy determined Worley was in possession of a concealed knife, possession of suspected methamphetamine and suspected fentanyl.
Worley was placed under arrest for the misdemeanor warrant, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of a concealed dirk or dagger.
Worley was booked into the Mendocino County Jail where he was to be held in lieu of $18,500.00 bail.
