Man arrested for Armed Robbery in Covelo

Written by 

 According to a press release from the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office, dated Nov. 3, 2011:

On Nov. 2, 2011 deputies were dispatched to the area of Henderson Lane, In Covelo, regarding an armed robbery in progress. Upon arrival, deputies contacted Ronald Callen who told them that on at around 10:30 pm, he was at his residence entertaining friends when a man named Ira Reyes arrived. According to Callen, Reyes requested an undisclosed amount of money, but Callen was unable to provide him with any money at the time. Reyes then left the residence without incident.

Approximately 20 minutes later Reyes allegedly returned to the residence armed with a loaded mini-14 assault rifle. Reyes ordered Callen, and another person, into Callen's residence. Once inside the residence Reyes locked the door, pointed the rifle at Callen and the other male subject, demanding cash and marijuana. Callen then gave Reyes $20  in cash, but Reyes demanded more money. Eventually Reyes left the residence without harming Callen or the other male subject.

Reyes was eventually contacted at his place of residence and taken into custody without incident. Reyes was subsequently booked into the Mendocino County jail for armed robbery, false imprisonment, a felon in possession of a firearm and felon in possession of ammunition. Reyes, at the time of this press release, was being held on $15,000 bail.
