[Update 2:30 p.m.: Suspects Still At-Large] Car Chase Ends in Crash in McKinleyville, Officers Search for Two Suspects

Law enforcement officers chased a green suburban from Arcata to McKinleyville this morning. The chase started on LK Wood near HSU just after 1:45 a.m.

The suburban reached speeds of up to 90 MPH. A man drove the vehicle while a woman sat in the passenger seat, according to the scanner.

“When I observed it, it had all of its headlights off,” said an officer over the scanner.

The vehicle drove north on 101 before heading east on 299. Officers discontinued the pursuit, but caught up with the vehicle again on Murray Road in McKinleyville. Officers chased the vehicle through McKinleyville before the vehicle eventually crashed on Kelly Avenue at around 2:05 a.m.

“The driver bailed from the vehicle,” said an officer over the scanner.

Officers started a foot pursuit and searched for the suspects. A female was detained just before 2:30 a.m. However, the woman didn’t match the description of the passenger.

“I don’t believe she was tied in with this,” said an officer over the scanner. “I’m gonna cut her loose. Is that kosher — to release her?”

At this point, it’s unclear if the actual suspects were detained, but we’ll post an update as soon as we find out.

Update 2:30 p.m.: A spokesperson for the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office tells us no suspects were arrested.



  • Night vision goggles work well for driving on dark roads with headlights off.

    I wonder if mutants are starting to obtain this cheap, surplus gear?

    You can get decent eastern bloc stuff real cheap off the web these days. The Cylons should carry a ir searchlight on their enforcer units to better aid in late night hunting.

    I know syskiou county has ir sniper scopes and technicals from the fed surplus. You can read the lists of the gear each department requested for the Cylons to use.
