Assault and Robbery in Garberville, Help Find the Suspects
About 3:30 p.m. yesterday, April 9, an employee, Jullian Pree, of the Bootleg clothing store in Garberville attempted to stop a theft of about $500 worth of jeans. A man cut the belt loops of several pairs of jeans that were chained to a stand in front of the store. Then the man jumped in a gold Nissan Sentra. Pree says that when he attempted to stop the suspect, the suspect jumped in the car. The man deliberately struck him with the car, tossing him onto the hood. Luckily, Pree was able to get off the hood safely.
He and the owner of the store, Michelle Bushnell, are asking the public’s help finding the suspects.
Pree describes the young woman passenger accused of helping take the jeans as approximately 190-210 pounds, 5 foot to 5’2″, in her twenties, white with dark hair. She was wearing glasses with dark frames, blue jeans and a black v-neck shirt over a white undershirt.
The driver, a white male in his mid to late twenties, Pree says, has buzz cut blonde hair, blue eyes and a chip in his front tooth. He was wearing a white t-shirt. The two fled in a gold Nissan Sentra from the mid 90’s with a license plate of 6YW?66? (See photos below.)
Anyone seeing these two is urged to report them to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office or dial 911.
