On 03/22/2024 at approximately 4:45 pm, Ukiah Police Department (UPD) received an alert from the FLOCK license plate reading camera system. The alert was for a stolen vehicle traveling northbound in the area of North Orchard Avenue and East Perkins Street. The vehicle was a silver colored Honda Accord which was reported stolen from Petaluma, CA earlier in the day.

UPD Officers responded and searched the area, including the shopping center parking lots. A UPD officer found the vehicle as it was backing out of a parking stall located in the Pear Tree Shopping Center. The officer followed the vehicle as it exited the parking lot and turned northbound onto North Orchard Avenue. Several UPD officers responded to assist and a traffic stop was initiated. The driver, later identified as 29-year-old Karina Osorio, pulled into the Home Depot Parking lot at 350 North Orchard Avenue and stopped.

Osorio complied with the officer’s orders and was taken into custody without incident. The registered owner of the vehicle was notified and the vehicle was towed.

Osorio was interviewed and booked at the Mendocino County Jail for possession of stolen property-vehicle, driving on a suspended license, driving without a required interlock device, and violation of probation. Osorio also had a warrant for her arrest from Marin County for driving on a suspended license. Marin County agreed to extradite her for this warrant.
