Synopsis: On 07-28-2014 at approximately 12:45 AM, Mendocino County Sheriff's Deputies conducted a traffic stop on Highway 101 near Monica Lane in Willits, California.

During the traffic stop the front right passenger, who stated her name was last of Turner, was contacted and found to be in possession of approximately .04 grams of methamphetamine during a consent search. The female was also found to be in possession of a used Methamphetamine pipe.

As the Deputies continued with their investigation they learned the female's true name was Ashley Rashell Azevedo and that she was falsely using the name Turner, who was her cousin.

Upon further investigation Deputies determined Azevedo was on Felony Probation in Mendocino County with an obey all laws clause.

Azevedo was arrested and transported to the Mendocino County Jail where she was booked on the listed violations and was to be held on a No Bail status.
