Multiple law enforcement agencies are searching for a suspect wearing a gray sweatshirt south of Table Bluff. Details from scanner traffic are sketchy but it appears the suspect has multiple warrants and fled from a deputy.  CHP and Humboldt County Sheriff’s units have been searching the area for over an hour. A Fortuna K-9 began searching just before 10 a.m.

UPDATE 10:39 a.m.: An officer reports via scanner a “pursuit in the field” and requests the K-9. He states he sees an Indian male, with a “white tank-top, camo pants.” He describes the man as “parolee at large.”
