Mendocino Sheriff issues press release on felony warrant arrest
Published by the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Dept. on December 10, 2019:
“On 12-08-2019 at approximately 7:30 PM, Mendocino County Sheriff’s Deputies were conducting follow up investigations at a residence in the 29000 block of Shangri La Drive in Fort Bragg, California.
As Deputies approached the residence, they observed Daniel Sanchez who they knew from prior law enforcement contacts as a subject who is on active County Parole. Sanchez walked away from the residence and into the darkness.
Deputies illuminated Sanchez with a flashlight and directed him to stop. Sanchez responded by running away from the Deputies, while ignoring commands to stop.
After a brief foot pursuit, Sanchez was apprehended and arrested without further incident. During the arrest of Sanchez, an operational portable radio scanner that was programmed with Mendocino Sheriff’s Office radio frequencies was located. Deputies suspected that Sanchez was using the public safety radio scanner to assist him in avoiding or escaping arrest.
Sanchez was also found to have an active recently issued felony arrest warrant for Violation of County Parole.
Sanchez was arrested for 3455 PC (Violation of County Parole), the felony arrest warrant, 148(a)(1) PC (Resisting Arrest), and 636.5 PC (Unlawful Use of Public Safety Radio Scanner).
Sanchez was booked into the Mendocino County Jail where he was to be held on a No Bail status.”
