On 09-09-2022 at about 1:29 A.M. Deputies from the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office assisted Ukiah Police Department officers (UPD) on a traffic stop in the 500 block of North Dora Street Ukiah, California.

Upon arrival Deputies identified the four occupants of the vehicle as Marlen Nunez-Alvarez, Victor Martinez, Elijah Devinegomes and a 17-year-old male.

Deputies assisted the UPD officers in searching the vehicle and located numerous stolen checks, personal documents, and US mail which belonged to people who reside in various locations throughout Mendocino County.

In total, Deputies counted 53 stolen checks which totaled over $60,000.00 in monetary value.

Upon further examination, it was noted that some of the checks were already forged with the names of some of the occupants in the vehicle.

Upon further investigation it was determined that Nunez-Alvarez, Martinez, Devinegomes, and the 17-year-old male were conspiring in an attempt to cash or trade the stolen checks for financial gain.

The Mendocino County Sheriff's Office is currently working with the United States Postal Inspection Service to attempt contact with all the identified victims in this case.

Nunez-Alvarez, Martinez, Devinegomes and the 17-year-old male were placed under arrest for grand theft [487(A) PC], possession of stolen property [496(A) PC], and conspiracy [182(A)(1) PC].

Nunez-Alvarez, Martinez, and Devinegomes were booked into the Mendocino County Jail where they were to be held in lieu of $15,000.00 bail separately.

The 17-year-old male was booked into the Mendocino County Juvenile Hall.
