Suspect in Marijuana Robbery Fails to Show in Court; Bounty Hunters Are Looking for Him


Reward poster issued after George Daniels failed to show in court.

When George Daniels didn’t show up at the Humboldt County Courthouse on March 24, not only did law enforcement start looking for him but, his bail bondsman got worried. “If we can’t find him, we have to cough up $50,000,” explained Steve Payton of Bill Davidson Bail Bonds today.* “We’re putting out wanted posters.”

His company also contracted with bounty hunters. These hunters were out today looking for property that Daniels reportedly might be hiding on in the Dinsmore area. If you saw a small, yellow plane circling the area today, now you know why.

Payton said that he has received several reports that Daniels has been spotted in Rio Dell, Hoopa, and in Dinsmore. “If we get a credible lead, the reward will be based on information leading to his arrest.”

Late last October, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office arrested Daniels after a truck struck a guardrail and fled but not before the driver was allegedly seen dropping “a load of marijuana and a bicycle into a ditch.”

Eventually, approximately 800 pounds of freshly harvested marijuana were discovered as well as a loaded sawed off rifle. In a press release, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Department stated, “Deputies suspect Daniels possibly just committed a marijuana robbery.”

Payton urges anyone who has credible evidence of Daniels whereabouts to contact either the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at (707) 445-7251 or to text (707)  496-9493. “He’s known to carry firearms,” Payton said. “Don’t approach him.”

    Kim, Being aware and cautious is one thing. Allowing bounty hunters and bail bondsmen to use your page as a resource is stepping on a slippery slope . Might i caution you to think this one through? This fellow obviously needs catchin, and i think he will be soon-caught. George still needs his dope ,and some sleep , then he ll step into the loop, and hopefully the law will dally hard… may it be soon, and till then people keep your doors locked and your powder dry, and Fido in the house.

    • I think this is not any different than publishing Humboldts most wanted. It’s a good public service.

    • Just like I update stories on other crimes, this is an update on the incident last fall. Here’s the most current information on a situation. I think it is interesting so that’s why it is here.

      I don’t see any problem with this report. Somebody skips bail, the bondsman announces a search, etc., on and on. This is news. If catching ol’ George is so important, what are you so worried about? Methinks thou doth protest too much. An old friend, maybe?

  • I got u kym no worries

  • Why would he be out on bail in the first place? So he could go to work everyday?

  • Dyerville Loop is Not Alderpoint

    Kym, i admire your clear headed thinking and efforts , and good information is priceless. Thanks

  • Kinda funny they decided to let him out, and think he would actually show up. He IS the same guy who has managed to escape the jail with ease . Remember?
