MOPES from all over are appearing in Mendocino County for Home Invasion Season, 2012. Monday, February 13th, four men were arrested at 930 in the morning on Black Hawk Drive, Willits, as they sat in the driveway of a property involved in the medical marijuana business. The owner, suspecting the quartet was in Willits to rob him, called the Sheriff's Department. Deputies immediately noted that three of the four men were tweeked. A search of their vehicle revealed methamphetamine as well as several military style backpacks. Other items in the vehicle included gloves, stocking caps, bolt cutters, flash lights, saws, saw blades, duct tape and night vision devices. Oh, and a loaded .380 caliber pistol was found in the brush near the vehicle. Eventually the suspects admitted they had come to this area intending to steal marijuana. All four were arrested and booked into the Mendocino County Jail on charges of criminal conspiracy, attempted robbery, possession of methamphetamine and possession of burglary tools. The subjects are currently held on $150,000.00 bail.
