Synopsis: On 06-03-2012 at approximately 1916 hours, deputies contacted Garett Matson in the alley way southwest of the Oak and Harold Street intersection. Deputies knew that the suspect was on active probation with a search and seizure term and contacted the suspect to carryout a probation search.

When making contact with the suspect, the suspect moved away from the deputies and made an effort to discretely conceal and/or hide a 12-inch fixed bladed knife that he had concealed on his person.

The suspect was arrested and ultimately transported to the Mendocino County Jail where he was booked on the listed charges with bail set at $15,000.00.
