Monterey County Sheriff’s deputies arrested officers Mario Mottu Sr., Jaime Andrade, Sgt. Bobby Carrillo, and Sgt. Mark Baker. One civilian was also arrested. They were booked into the Monterey County Jail.
King City, which lies north of San Luis Obispo County on Highway 101, had 17 sworn police officers.
The Police Department is currently closed because so many officers have been arrested. There is a closed sign on the front door.
