2 in Covelo Arrested for Burglary

Two people have been arrested for burglarizing a home in Covelo. The burglary happend back in July at a home in the 25000 block of Fairbanks Lane in Covelo. The homeowners told Mendocino County Sheriff’s Deputies that they returned home to find several items had been stolen. A Deputy received several leads during the subsequent investigation, which included the possible location of some of the stolen items. Using those leads, the Deputy was able to establish probable cause to identify the suspects as Sherrie Petty and Steven Lawson both from Calpella. Last week, deputies went to a residence in the 4000 block of North State Street to locate the suspects, who were found hiding inside. Deputies arrested them for the Fairbanks burglaries, and other possible cases. Investigators have since recovered some of the stolen items from several burglary cases and have returned the items to the victims.
