On 01/02/2023 at approximately 0326 hours, Ukiah Police Officers were dispatched to the Prime Market for a  report of an alarm call. Upon arrival, Officers noticed the power was out to the building and the front glass door was broken. Through the investigation, it was determined the power was shut off to the building prior to the suspect/s entering the business and dozens of items were stolen, totaling approximately $1,800.  

While on scene, UPD Dispatch received a disturbance call in the 300 block of N. Oak St. Shortly after receiving the disturbance call, UPD Dispatch received a second call of two subjects breaking a vehicle’s windshield in the  700 block of N. Oak St. Officers were provided a description of the subjects and responded to the area. Officers contacted two subjects in the 1000 block of N. Oak St. Officers discovered in the investigation that the two subjects climbed onto the hood of a vehicle and stomped/kicked the front windshield multiple times, and caused it to break. The damage to the vehicle was determined to be in excess of $400.  

While checking the area that the subjects were located, Officers found multiple items that were stolen from the burglary at the Prime Market.  

After concluding the investigation on scene, both individuals were arrested for the above listed charges and  were transported to the Mendocino Juvenile Hall after being medically cleared for incarceration per COVID-19  protocol.

  1. These kids were ridiculous, loud, argumentative and totally disrespectful causing a disturbance until nearly 5am. One yelling at his mommy from the curb where he was cuffed because he was upset that he’s going to go to juvenile hall! Ha! Enjoy it, you deserve to be punished!

  2. Certainly they are just mis understood. Send a comforter/ social worker. To inquire about how they are feeling. Maybe give them a reward of some kind. To try better next time. And kamala will get to the root of the problem and get back to you
