A patrol officer located her in front of the Grass Valley Library on Mill St. and detained her. She was refusing to give any of her information and was extremely belligerent and uncooperative. Then some other officers who arrived to help knew her on sight from dealing with her before and identified her as 18 year old Grass Valley resident Sara Cummings.
