The Public Is Listening

Sonora, CA — Sonora Police Department’s “Most Wanted” for this week is no longer a “Most Wanted.”

As soon as a KVML listener heard the 8:05 local newscast this morning she recognized the name of this week’s “Most Wanted,” Monika Ann Vallotton. She immediately contacted the Police Department and Chief Mark Stinson and Traffic Officer Jaemie Boeding went to her address and made the arrest.

Stinson commented, “I think today’s phone call just goes to show how great it is to have the citizens out there help the Sonora Police Department and the Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office.”

That brings to 221 the number of fugitives that have been captured, many of them by public tips as in this case.
