The owner of popular Healdsburg-based slush company Amy’s Wicked Slush, Amy Joy Covin, 59, was arrested by the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office on August 6 for attempted felony grand theft and grand theft. Covin claimed that although she cannot provide details on the situation it had nothing to with Wicked Slush. She stated it was a personal matter that had to do with a contractor rebuilding her home after losing it in the fires years back. Covin sued the company Pacific Tile in December of 2018 for almost 10,000 dollars in damages. The party alleging theft in the current case reported to the Windsor police that in March, Covin had transferred money from their account at least three times making the amount almost $11,950.

The sheriff’s spokesman, Sgt. Juan Valencia said that transfers were made on September 30. He stated that investigators determined that Covin had access to the reporting party’s financial accounts when she served as the victim’s accountant. Covin’s attorney declined to address that allegation. Covin told the Press Democrat in a 2019 interview that she had ended her accounting practice in 2017 before opening Amy’s Wicked Slush in Healdsburg. The final outcome of the situation is still pending.
