On Oct. 9, 2020, Deputy Alves was dispatched to 6155 Highway 162, sp. #42, regarding the third-hand report of a physical disturbance involving two males. It was reported that a knife may have been involved in the altercation.
Upon arrival, the involved parties refused to answer the door. The resident was determined to be on Glenn County Probation and was searchable.
A tactical entry was made into the residence. Inside, Steven Acevedo, Rafael Ruvalcaba and Maria Gomez were located. Ruvalcaba was subsequently arrested for violation of PRCS probation, possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of a concealed firearm, and possession of a firearm with altered or removed serial numbers.
People v. Alex Miranda – Defendant was convicted of two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon. He was sentenced to 16 months in prison, to be served consecutively with a Colusa County two-year prison sentence. This case was prosecuted by District Attorney Dwayne Stewart, with assistance from Glenn County Sheriff’s Deputies Ramirez and Cordova.
On March 4, 2021, deputies contacted Damien Alvarez and Alex Miranda as they were exiting a white GMC Yukon on Yolo Street, west of East Street in Orland. Alvarez was seen driving the GMC and Miranda was observed in the front passenger seat.
Miranda was found to be on parole out of Colusa County and Alvarez was found to not have a valid California driver’s license. OPD’s K-9 searched the vehicle and had a positive alert on the vehicle. A search of the Yukon was conducted and a gray Smith & Wesson .38 caliber revolver was found in the vehicle.
Miranda and Alvarez were both subsequently placed under arrest. Alvarez was found to be in possession of cocaine and a small baggie containing prescription medications. Alvarez and Miranda were transported to the Glenn County Jail.
People v. Cheyenne Heavrin – Defendant was convicted of bringing drugs into a jail (a felony). She was sentenced to 180 days in jail, two years’ probation, and ordered to complete drug court. This case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Coffey, with assistance from Glenn County Sheriff’s Sgt. Draper.
On Oct. 11, 2020, deputies were dispatched to a residence at 4530 Country Road FF in Orland for the report of Cheyenne Heavrin under the influence of a narcotic. Sergeant Draper arrived and contacted Heavrin in the front yard of the residence, near the roadway.
Heavrin spoke at an accelerated pace and was unable to stand still. Heavrin also had an elevated pulse, rigid movement, constricted pupils and was unable to maintain focus on a conversation. It was determined Heavrin was under the influence of a central nervous system stimulant and determined to be too intoxicated to care for herself or others.
Heavrin was arrested and booked into Glenn County Jail for public intoxication, to be released when sober. While Heavrin was booked into the jail, she was in possession of suspected narcotics, which were concealed on her person.
People v. Fernando Montalvo – Defendant was convicted of false imprisonment (a felony) and felony vandalism. He was sentenced to 120 days in jail, three year’s probation, and 52 weeks of Batterers Treatment Classes. This case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Ruby Neumann, with assistance from Glenn County Sheriff’s Deputy Tuma.
People v. Julia Langworthy – Defendant was previously convicted of bringing drugs into a jail, failure to appear, and vehicle theft (all felonies). She was found in violation of probation for the third time and was sentenced to 120 days in jail and ordered to complete a six-month rehab program. This case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Coffey, with assistance from Glenn County Probation Officer Van Eck.
On Wednesday, Dec. 30, 2019, Langworthy was caught driving a Ford F250 that had been stolen from the Ord Bend boat launch parking area earlier in the morning. As soon as the theft at Ord Bend Park was reported on social media, Facebook users got busy.
They first reported seeing the truck at the Super Shopper at South and East Streets later in the morning of the theft. Security video shows the Ford parked in a space in front of the store.
The truck appeared to have only one occupant, and she is seen walking from the vehicle to the store, where she purchased cigarettes and a Red Bull.
A little later, around noon, the truck was spotted traveling east on Newville Road. Citizens followed it to the Speedway-Taco Bell-I-5 Café area of Hoff Way, and called law enforcement.
Officers arrived and ordered the driver, who was the sole occupant of the vehicle, out of the truck. A witness later commented on Facebook, “The lady ran as soon as the cop said get out of the truck. She was definitely a tweaker.”
Indeed, after her arrest, she was found to have a controlled substance in her possession, and was subsequently charged with bringing drugs into a jail, a felony.
On March 25, 2021, Julia Christina Langworthy, 33, a laborer who lives in Orland, was booked into the Glenn County Jail on warrants alleging battery on a public service officer (a misdemeanor), and failure to appear after being released on her own recognizance (a misdemeanor). Total bail was set at $55,000. She was taken into custody at 900 Newville Road by an Orland police officer.
