Synopsis: On 10-04-2016 at approximately 6:40 P.M. Mendocino County Sheriff Deputies were dispatched to the 31000 Block of Timberline Road in Willits, CA, regarding a burglary in progress.
Deputies arrived in the area and learned that the suspect (Gary Martin) had barricaded himself inside of a residence. They also received information from the California Highway Patrol that they believed Martin was responsible for brandishing a handgun along the Highway earlier in the day.
Mendocino County Sheriff Deputies along with Officers from the Willits Police Department and California Highway Patrol surrounded the residence that S-Gary Martin had barricaded himself inside of. Deputies then attempted to talk S-Gary Martin out of the residence. S-Gary Martin eventually ran from the residence and attempted to elude Deputies. When the Deputies attempted to apprehend S-Gary Martin, he became physically violent and began resisting their attempts to subdue him. Mendocino County Sheriff Office K-9’s “Doc” and “Ruddick” were released to assist the Deputies. With the assistance of the K-9s, Deputies were able to take S-Gary Martin into custody. As a result of Martins interaction with K9 “Doc” and “Ruddick” he sustained minor injuries for which he received medical attention.
Martin was arrested for Resisting Or Threatening An Officer, Burglary and Felony Vandalism.
Martin was booked into the Mendocino County Jail where he is being held on $50,000.00 bail
