Synopsis: On 10-25-2012, while on routine, MCSO Deputies along with Tribal Police Officers, contacted a subject in the 77000 block of Highway 162 in Covelo.

While speaking to the subject, later identified as S-Anthony Wilburn, it was determined that he was on active CDC parole. Once Deputies determined that Wilburn was on Parole they attempted to search him for weapons at which time Wilburn attempted to flee. Once the Deputies were able to control Wilburn they located a .22 caliber handgun and .22 caliber ammunition concealed on S-Wilburns person. In addition, they located a Syringe that contained methamphetamine.

S-Wilburn was placed under arrest for being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition. He was also arrested and charged with possession of a concealed weapon in a public place and possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine.

S-Wilburn was transported without further incident to the Mendocino County Jail and booked on the listed charges. He is currently being held without bail due to a State Parole Hold.
