Over $5000 Worth of Equipment and Two Quads Stolen From Samoa Drag Strip

Sometime between the 15th of this month and 3 p.m. today, the Samoa Drag Strip was burglarized. One 16′ tall door was broken open. “Once it was busted, they were able to drive a quad out,” explained Danny Wright, President and CEO.

Two quads were taken. In addition, other items include a sprayer built and donated by an individual out of his own pocket, power tools, three new batteries, and a number of supplies out of a work truck and an ambulance including two service bags which contained neck braces, splints, anything medical personnel would need.)

Wright said that about $5000 worth of equipment plus the quads was taken. “We’ll have to put up security cameras,” Wright worried. “We’re just a volunteer organization. This is coming out of our pocket.”

Just a year and a half ago, the drag strip was victimized by thieves who stole electrical wiring. Luckily, the community rallied and helped raise the money to replace the wiring.

If you have any information, contact the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. Anyone wanting to donate money or other assistance can contact Wright at 707 845 5755 or P.O Box 1211, Eureka, CA 95502

    I am so sick of all the effing lowlife thieves around here

    • When weed is fully leaglized, there will be more criminal activity in the area as the price of weed drops and the commercial grows move elsewhere.

  • So sick of the thieves just helping themselves to our hard earned property. Even in our rural areas aren’t safe anymore.
    We need to take back Humboldt!

    • Not just in Humboldt.

    • Zaniah is right Dennis, take back Humboldt! Humboldt first, then we will take back the rest. Someone knows something, somewhere, about this one for sure. Taking back Humboldt involves honest citizens turning in those less honest.

      You need to make the call if you see something wrong.
