On 02/27/2023, at approximately 1530 hours, UPD Officers responded to an address on Dora Ave. for a report of a burglary.

The victim reported that multiple items were taken including a legally owned and registered handgun, an Apple watch, and other personal items.
Officers began investigating the reported burglary and began developing leads. Information received during the investigation led officers to a residence in the 1700 block of Lockwood Drive in Ukiah. Officers responded to the residence on Lockwood Drive and were aware Mark Wolk lived at the residence and was on active Mendocino County Probation for burglary. Officers conducted a probation search of Wolk’s bedroom and located the exact property that was reported to be stolen earlier in the day on Dora Ave. The handgun was located and was found loaded in Wolk’s bedroom.
Officers obtained video surveillance footage from the 700 block of Dora Ave which showed Wolk leaving the area with bags of items in his hands. Wolk was also wearing the same clothing at the time of his arrest as he was wearing on video in the area of the burglary. Wolk was arrested and booked at the Mendocino County Jail.
