Report of Home Robbery All An Illusion

Mendocino County Deputies responded to a report of a home being robbed by multiple suspects and shots fired yesterday in Albion. But it turns out, the woman who called, 43 year old Laura Doty, was high on drugs and imagined the whole thing. 56 year old Douglas Higginbotham, who was also high, was holding a rifle when deputies arrived. He dropped it on their orders. Both were taken into custody. Their 2 grandchildren who were also at the residence, were taken into protective custody.
