[UPDATE 2:18 P.M. Search Warrant Being Served for Sexual Assault Suspect] Law Enforcement Convoy Across From Miranda

CaptureWe have received multiple reports of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office heading up a road by the Miranda exit from Hwy 101. (The road is known locally as French’s Road but Google Maps shows it as Givney or Gibney Road.) Reportedly there are ten vehicles–both marked and unmarked. There are reports of one detained, a K-9 unit, and a helicopter circling the area.

Donna Bowman, a neighbor, says she heard a gunshot about 9 a.m.

We will be following this closely.

UPDATE 1:15 p.m.: According to an eyewitness,

They dismissed the helicopter. Some of the sheriff rigs have left now. But they threw a roll of yellow ribbon from the road over the bank to another sheriff in the driveway then they walked the ribbon toward the house.

UPDATE 1:24 p.m.: More information from the eyewitness,

…the only vehicles left there I can see is a couple white pickups with canopies on them and an emblem on the door I think it’s a sheriff star, but I could be wrong. One in the driveway and one on the road above the house. There could be more I’m not seeing that is blocked by the trees. All of the black and whites that were out front have left.

UPDATE 2:20 p.m.: According to Lt. Dennis Young of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, this incident was related to serving a search warrant for kidnapping and sexual assault which occurred two days ago.

The warrant was served at 12:13 p.m. One person was detained and the area of the alleged assault was searched for evidence.



  • What happened in blocksburg?

  • And away we go….The shit is going down.i hope this year it isn’t pick and choose,if u see it,cut it.the people that come here,just to grow is a big problem.folks used to grow a little for them and to share with fam,now it’s all about the money.they ruined it all for everyone…and all their shit smells the same,looks the same go the f..k away

    • Many of the big ballers are fromboldt. There are plenty of out of towners but there are also a lot of local “kids” blowing it up. I know because I went to school w some of these folks through the eighties and early nineties.
      Don’t act like the local shit don’t stink. That grew to share w friends line is a bunch of crap. They grew to pay the tax bills and that means they grew to make a buck. No one risked prison in the Reagan years so they could have a little to share w friends

      • you’re mostly right-there AIN’T no one in this to share some weed with their 60’s hippy family-lol

      • Sorry u feel it’s crap,it’s the way I’m am.i help my friends and family at all cost.their my family.they would do the same.maybe u need different friends.wow

  • Well that’s just sad.we share everything with everyone in need.did then do now.im not a hippie,I was born and raised here.and trust me I’ve been there.and all the big stuff the money maker weed is all the same.dont hate I was just sayin
