  • Caught with a substance thought to be meth… just look at that kisser! Guaranteed meth!

  • That’s great! I kinda feel like people, and le are taking back this county. Now if california repeals prop. 47, we’ll be in good shape.

    • Thank you Sharon. A lot of good people thought prop 47 was a good idea. A lot of good people have changed their minds

      • How does prop 47 relate to these people or their arrests?

        • Because they get arrested and are almost immediately back on the streets ripping people off……again, again and again. Prop 47 has created a revolving door for these losers and they know it, there is no punitive incentive to change their ways.

  • Score one for the good guys!!

  • Good to hear that the scumbags aren’t safe hiding out in Alderpoint.

  • Meredyth Phillips

    Former student of mine. Sad.

    • Chase Ganey and his brothers used to come to our house. They were among the most respectful and polite of my son’s friends. They offered to do dishes, take out trash, etc. I have no illusions about who they are today, but I agree with you, it’s sad.

    • GrammarLivesMatter

  • OMG miss rose cooper,finally caught.its about time.maybe they’ll keep her this time.ya right

  • Beat up from the feet up ,tore up from the floor up ,need a check up from the neck up .rose cooper

  • Humboldt keep up the cleaning efforts, we are slowly taking back the communities, towns, and County!!

    See a wanted individual drop the dime so they will do the time.

    Ganey went down a dead end street according to article above, dead end is right. And spider woman, ouch, who would hire her to represent their business??

  • Wait, are they new deputies, or a new duo of seasoned deputies.

  • Ship them off to a female camp already, have them make gravel from boulders, or make license plates. This earth and it’s inhabitants don’t need these scumbags mixed into the general population!
