On January 20th, 2012, at approximately 3:20 PM, Deputy Martin was detailed to a theft investigation at 5001 Albion Little River Road in Little River, regarding fraudulent credit card activity.
During the investigation, Deputy Martin learned the victim, 104-year old William Westfall, had a caretaker who managed the victim’s credit card for care providing reasons. The care provider informed Deputy Martin that she suspected her son, Christopher Brockway, was responsible for the fraudulent transactions and took the credit card from her while she was asleep at their residence.
Brockway had recently moved to the area and was confirmed to be on active CDC parole.
Through further investigation, Deputy Martin positively identified Brockway as the person responsible for the fraudulent charges on Westfall’s credit card. It is suspected that Brockway charged thousands of dollars at multiple businesses, over a period of approximately three weeks.
On January 24th 2012, Deputy Martin issued a summons to arrest Brockway pursuant to Penal Code Section 836. At approximately 6 PM the same date, Deputy Espinoza contacted and arrested Brockway in the Willits area without incident.
Brockway was transported and booked into the Mendocino County Jail on the listed charges and held on a parole hold issued by CDC parole.
