  • I don’t think it’s going to be catch and release for you this time Huntzinger.

  • Ah the huntzingers…. what percentage of local crime is perpetrated by this family? Ups the odds that the victim knew his attackers. Once again, best to steer clear of these folks. Ask anyone in blue lake, they can tell you. That officer involved shooting in mckinleyville a few months ago involved a female of this family. Its sad actually, dunno what chance those kids had from the get go.

    • Get your facts right the shooting in mckinleyville was a girl last name of Hunsucker…not huntzinger, must want to gossip awfully bad

      • seems to be consistency in the “ILK” of these vermin! At least THATS on track. Who are YOU lobbying for? You vote YES on 47? You a criminal too? WHATS YOUR NAME?

        thats what I thought!

  • I see the name Huntzinger all the time in the arrest report in LoCo, they would [police ] would always let him go. I think the system is partly to blame..


  • Whatta load of crap! Steele had bail set at $1.02 MILLION, and then was released on her “own recognizance. How the feK can THAT happen?
    Even if she rolled, she still would likely be, according to all reports to date, at LEAST an accessory to murder?! And for that aszhole Huntzinger clan, remember a whole 5 months ago??

    per LoCo:
    “The man arrested, Robert Louis Huntzinger, was sentenced to a prison term of seven years, four months for multiple charges, including burglary and heroin possession, back in March 2010.

    Here’s the press release from the Arcata Police Department:

    On 1/21/2015 at about 3:20 p.m., an officer with the Arcata Police Department conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle in the 3500 block of Spear Ave.

    Based upon the observation of marijuana in the vehicle, the officer conducted a search of the driver and the vehicle.

    Approximately one half pound of heroin, packaged for sales, was found on his person. Additional heroin and several grams of methamphetamine were located in a pouch that he had hidden in his clothing and two pounds of vacuum sealed and packaged marijuana was located in the vehicle. Also found on his person was over $1,700 that was later seized as evidence of narcotic sales. The heroin has an approximate street value in excess of $12,000. The driver of the vehicle, Blue Lake resident Robert Louis Huntzinger (age 33), was arrested on the following charges and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility:

    H&S 11351 – Possession of a Narcotic for Sales
    H&S 11352 – Transportation of a Narcotic
    H&S 11359 – Possession of Marijuana for Sales
    H&S 11360 – Transportation of Marijuana
    H&S 11377 – Possession of a Controlled Substance”

    WHY IS THIS BLIGHT EVEN ALLOWED TO BREATHE THE SAME AIR AS HUMANS? I might not favor the DEATH PENALTY, but about 200 years in the SHU @ Corcoran wouldn’t hurt scum of this calibre! The same for all in collusion!

    • Amimissingsomething

      They should all get the death penalty. To bad are state is joke when it comes to scumbag crime punishment


      LOCO isn’t a creditable source for anything, but copy and paste of Kym’s site. They should be banned.
