Synopsis: On 8-7-2012 deputies were dispatched to a residence on Madrone Drive in Willits, regarding vandalism to a vehicle.

Upon arrival, it was determined that Suspect Jerry Alvarez was illegally occupying an apartment unit in the area and that current tenants had prevented him from gaining access to that unit. In retaliation, Suspect Jerry Alvarez threw a large rock at a tenants vehicle, which caused approximately one thousand dollars ($1000.00) in damage.

Deputies then contacted Suspect Alvarez in the yard of a nearby private residence. They determined that he was under the influence of a controlled substance.

Suspect Alvarez was placed under arrest for defacing, or damage to private property and for being under the influence of a controlled substance. He was transported and booked into the Mendocino County Jail where he is being held on $10,000.00 bail.
