  • Burglary in the First Degree for her involvement of burglary in the 700 block of W. Tamarack Ave in early December 2011
  • Attempted Burglary in the First Degree and Criminal Mischief in the Third Degree in the 500 block of W. Ridgeway Ave on June 7th, 2012

Mendoza was processed at the Hermiston Police Department and lodged at the Umatilla County Jail in Pendleton.

“We are confident Ms. Mendoza was not acting alone yet there is limited evidence for our officers to go upon that would implicate anyone else.  We also believe Ms. Mendoza and her accomplice may be responsible for several other unsolved daylight burglaries we have experienced,” reports Chief Jason Edmiston.
