Once Again Law Enforcement Staged Near Garberville
This morning, at approximately 6:15, seven law enforcement vehicles were gathered near the Renner’s Station in Garberville. Yesterday morning there was a similar gathering. We have a request for more information into the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. Since Monday, an unusually large force of Mendocino, Trinity, and Humboldt County sheriff’s deputies as well as representatives from multiple other agencies concerned with water and other environmental issues have been active in the Island Mountain area. We don’t know yet if this morning’s gathering is part of the same raids.
As of 7:15, we received reports from locals that there are six or seven Humboldt County Sheriff’s vehicles headed up towards Island Mountain from the Humboldt County side towards D Road.
A community leader who prefers to be anonymous contacted RB this morning saying, “Richard Marks raised a good question “where is the funding coming from?”… They are putting some serious OT in on this “operation ” and I drove through Garberville today and [saw] three bums sleeping on the streets… .”
Other individuals are hoping that marijuana gardens damaging to the environment are being targeted.
UPDATE 9:01 a.m.: KMUD has reports of water tanks emptied and more here.
