Bust North of Laytonville Yesterday Explained (Hint: Firearm and Shopping Cart Involved)

This is a press release from the Mendocino 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:

Theodore Burgess regina Gibbs On 11/29/2016 around 2:47 PM Mendocino County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to the 56300 Block of North Highway 101 in Leggett CA regarding a domestic dispute with a firearm being discharged.

Deputies contacted the 41 year old male victim who advised that he and Suspect Regina Gibbs had a previous relationship, are no longer seeing each other, but live on the same property.  Shortly before calling the deputies the victim approached Gibbs to recover some property of his that she was in possession of.  While looking for the property outside the main residence the victim saw Gibbs enter her residence and a short time later he heard a gun discharge inside.  Gibbs then exited the residence holding a large caliber handgun.  The victim recognized the handgun as belonging to him and said it had been stolen approximately 4 weeks before.  He said he had not reported the firearm stolen and he was also missing a .223 caliber rifle. The victim approached Gibbs and tried to get the handgun from her where a minor struggle ensued, over the weapon, and the firearm was discharged again.  No one was injured by either shot that was fired.  The victim was able to gain possession of the weapon and other property from Gibbs and he left to his own residence located on the same property where he called the Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies attempted contact with Gibbs at that time but she refused to open the door or speak to them.  The investigation showed Gibbs was a convicted felon thus she was prohibited from owning, possessing, or having access to any firearms or ammunition.  Deputies then authored a search warrant to enter the residence to search for firearms, ammunition, and or evidence of the crimes reported.  Deputies also authorized a Ramey (arrest) warrant charging Gibbs with discharging a firearm in a grossly negligent manner, being a felon in possession of a firearm, and being a felon in possession of ammunition.

On 12/4/2016 around 9:45 AM members of the Mendocino Inter-agency SWAT Team assembled to serve the two warrants.  Due to Gibbs’ previous criminal history, the fact that she had used a firearm in this case, and the fact that she might be in possession of additional firearms belonging to the victim SWAT was determined to be the best unit to effectively serve the two warrants.  The SWAT Team approached the residence and Gibbs attempted to flee via the rear door of the residence where she was confronted by SWAT team members who demanded she stop, which she did.  She was taken into custody without further incident.  At the time of her arrest she was armed with a large knife but no other weapons were found on her person.

While at the location Suspect Theodore Burgess was also contacted.  Burgess was found to have an outstanding warrant for his arrest for illegal possession of a shopping cart.  Gibbs and Burgess were both arrested and booked into the County Jail.  Gibbs was booked for negligent discharge of a firearm, being a felon in possession of a firearm, and being a felon in possession of ammunition.  Her bail was set at $150,000.  Burgess was booked into the County jail on the outstanding warrant and his bail was set at $2500.

  • Haha warrant for illegal possession of shopping cart! Where is the drugs?

  • Umm…maybe I’m way off but…a shopping cart and a crazy lady shooting a gun in her house? How much did this exercise cost us? Perhaps we are better off letting the crazy people shoot each other or whatever, stopping it if it leaves the property and saving a ton of money. At some point we need to stop extorting tax money out of working peoples’ pockets to expensively supervise the crazy people.

  • I’ confused, did this occur in Leggett or Laytonville?

  • Mr. Burgess eyes remind me of Charles Manson.

  • Hey Kym, just thought of Jeff Joseph and remembered there were bones found in hoopa was there any other update on that article since? Thanks.

  • Humboldt County, Nova Scotia.

    “People don’t realize how much money there are in carts.
    I take these home and fix ’em, sell ’em to a different mall for 18 bucks.”

    “So I guess I gotta stop growin’ dope, get a job.”


    • Honeydew Bridge Chump

      Unless Mr.Leahee gets in the way of that shitapple!

      • You troll this blog with your “send in the Marines and eradicate all the weed in Humboldt” nonsense and are a fan of Trailer Park Boys,
        a show that’s essentially celebrating the foibles and follies of underground weed growers in an East Coast area that’s socially and economically not unlike Humboldt.

        Nearly unbelievable. And further confirming: you are a troll.


  • Shows how much crime we really have. Makes me feel safe. Last time swat went up spyrock with 100 officers for a telephone call with a false report,now for a couple tweekers. Glad its not crime families,gangs, etc. Lets keep it that way. AMERICA!!!LOL

    Maybe build a wall around Detroit, legalize drugs there so the mutants can use it as a homeland?

    Might be cheaper than jails or deploying The Marines.

  • Hope she gets the help she needs.
