This is a press release from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. The information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty:

imageservletVANNORTOn 11-04-2015, at approximately 3:33 p.m., the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office received a call from an anonymous citizen reporting suspicious activity in front of a business located in the 900 block of Redwood Drive, Garberville. The anonymous citizen reported that several subjects were standing around a parked Toyota truck and were inhaling “Whip-Its”.

Two Sheriff’s Deputies assigned to the Sheriff’s Office Garberville Station responded to the call and the group fled on foot upon seeing the Deputies. A short time later, the parked Toyota truck associated with the subjects was seen traveling N/B on Redwood Drive. One of the Deputies followed the vehicle onto Hwy. 101. The Deputy observed a traffic violation and stopped the vehicle in the Benbow area.

The driver of the vehicle was identified as Andrew Vannort (age 34) from Arcata. During the course of investigation, the Deputy located several hundred used “Whip-It” canisters in the bed Vannort’s truck. Vannort was also found to be driving on a suspended driver’s license. The Deputy called for a tow truck and conducted an inventory search of Vannort’s vehicle. Inside the vehicle the deputy located 32 individually packaged containers of suspected concentrated cannabis (Honey Oil). Also located was over an ounce of “Shatter” which is another form of concentrated cannabis.

Vannort was subsequently placed under arrest and transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility. Vannort was booked for possession for sales / transportation of concentrated cannabis, driving on a suspended drivers license, and violation of probation. Vannort’s bail was set at $25,000.

  • Looks like they forgot the 1lb. on the inventory list. Great job, another criminal off the streets.

  • Again we see a Toyota truck spreading terror in communities…

    The good side is that this possible Isis truck didn’t litter.

    Anywhere crimes and terror are spread, you’ll find a Toyota truck with stickers on the glass and bill hats on the dash.

    Good job towing this Isis mobile and taking a truck of terror off the roads.

    • Carnac was a "mystic from the East"

      So when this clown hits your kid or dog, high, on a suspended license, without insurance, are you still going to think this punk is harmless to the community? Grow up

    • Not sure why you hate toyotas so much. Almost everyone has a toyota truck around here. sure some of them are surely pot growers but a lot of people have one because they are good reliable trucks. I see plenty of rich dope growers that mob around in there lifted dodges and fords also. Don’t act like owning a toyota is crime.

      • Probably buys a bunch of Cbinese crap but that’s ok.

        • Chinese pick up truck? Don’t drive gm…

          Can’t help to notice the Isis/Humboldt truck connection, and see the terror spread from that platform. Add in beards, and who can tell them apart?

          Isis and growers are the same and need hinds to come, enabiling people to live terror free.

          Ncal was/is Russian, we need to get back to our roots.

  • Thank you Kym for good clean reporting on this incident. Too bad your former group has to take such a low road in theirs.

  • What is a whip-it?

    • N2O2 commonly referred to as hippie crack, as hippies at dead shows would get balloons of it to inhale. Many tanks of hippie crack were stolen from dental offices to be sold on the black market, is medipure.

      I’m just this terror Toyota truck didn’t litter.

      • Thanks for the info, Mr.X and Kym, which helped with google searching.
        Made famous in the Hollywood movie with Uncle Benny in Lethal Weapon 4. (irresponsible!)
        The OSHA site lists helpful tips for disposal & handling, ppm, etc..
        Yes, it’s overdose capable. Asphyxiation. (it shuts down the respiratory)

        Like other bewildered citizens, I think I’m beginning to see a pattern with drug use & control power use. The citizens are looking for the smiles, chuckles, laughter, relaxation, energy, creativity, individual escape, pain & misery escape, … not drugs. But because society makes it harder & harder to enjoy individual pleasures that don’t hurt others, they’re turning to canned contraband. Didn’t the 60’s begin with a canned “spiritual awakening”, replacing the inner voice of love & light? What stirred the people to seek canned help back then? Tv! Media? War? Economics? Religion replacing personal spiritual walks?
        Not starting a new topic, just musing.

    • Those little red and green canisters in the back of his truck are Whip-Its. They contain nitrous oxide.

  • Does anyone else see the white arrow on the truck windshield, pointing at the Reggae on the River Working Vehicle sticker…..?


    Whweereee do they sell these whippits? ive got three really bad teeth left that need pulling. i see from the pictures that open containers doesnt count any more? cool…. i feel alot safer now..

  • This guy is …not so smart. Run any addresses associated with him, get search warrants and I bet you find a lot more, possibly a shatter production with hundreds of pounds of trim. This guy seems loose enough to just lay out a trail from nibbles in town straight to production facility. But yeah, that would take effort from the sheriff.

  • We’re in the hell can u buy that many of them I used to work at the redway transfer station I’ve seen several garbage cans f ull of spent whip it’s that’s a whole lot of burnt brains

  • The clown dumped a bunch of the empties in a Renner station Porta potty I bet the guy that cleans them will love him.

  • Hippie crack is just as whack as crack itself. I saw someonbody DIE from doing whip-its ALL FREAKIN DAY outside the Philadelphia Spectrum around 1988. How the heck he kept doing hit after hit is beyond me, but that’s the nature of crack for the addictive type. Best bet is stay away from nitrous and NEVER do crack, EVER!

    • I heard about that post Adam Katz, killed by cops
      ..covered up.

      Jesus will whip ass down the road.


      Dead shows, kids with a pretty safe way to trsvel.

    • Wack is phencyclidine,brain food is ketamin,nitrous is physiological analog.most addictive to exceptionally bright.awake but not there.join me.

  • Nitrous oxide, better known as laughing gas, only kills you when you aren’t getting enough oxygen with it… like dentists committing suicide by turning it up all the way and lying back and laughing their way out of this world… or “hippies” doing so many in rapid succession it has the same result as with the dead dentists. The body needs enough oxygen or it dies. Darn quickly. Otherwise, nitrous oxide is harmless.

  • Also used in a ‘whip cream wazzer’…my first thought was…WOW! A whole lotta whip cream. Too bad these people don’t know how much fun one can have with whip cream!
    At the dentist, one is also given O2, otherwise the nitrous oxide displaces the oxygen going to the brain…Badddd.

    • Just so. And I don’t think the dentists can turn off the oxygen mix anymore either because of those suicides… and patients going happily when the mix was up too high. So it doesn’t even work to lower the misery at the dentist’s office anymore, it’s down so low. I think even most dentists have abandoned the use of it now.

  • Why wasn’t he charged with under the influence is it only alcohol or not
