Tip Leads to Two Wanted for Felonies
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:
On Tuesday, February 23, 2016 at approximately 7:00 p.m. the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office received an anonymous tip that suspicious activity was occurring at a residence in the 3700 block of Busey St, Eureka. It was reported a wanted felon, 30 year old Troy McCluskey was on scene and suspected drug activity was occurring there.
Deputies responded to the residence and no one answered the door. Deputies left the residence but remained in the area to watch for activity. Shortly thereafter, a subject who also lived at the residence approached. Deputies contacted the subject and explained they were looking for McCluskey, a wanted felon. The subject claimed to not have a key to the residence but would climb in through a window, and voluntarily climbed through the window to let deputies search the residence for McCluskey. Deputies entered the residence and McCluskey was located in the bedroom and taken into custody. Katy Lee, age 21, of Manila, was also located in the residence. Lee also had a felony warrant out for her arrest. Due to McCluskey’s probation status with a search and seizure clause, deputies continued their search of the residence and located suspected methamphetamine.
Lee and McCluskey were transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility. Lee was booked for her outstanding felony warrant for transportation and sales of a controlled substance, and McCluskey was booked for a violation of probation, possession of methamphetamine, and for his outstanding felony warrants for transportation of a controlled substance for sales and evading peace officers. Lee’s bail was set at $10,000. McCluskey was not eligible for bail.
Anyone with information for the Sheriff’s Office regarding this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Office at 707-445-7251 or the Sheriff’s Office Crime Tip line at 707-268-2539.
