[Captured] Man Runs Off With Two Handguns (Now With Video)

Press release from the EPD:

On December 26, 2016, at about 4:57 p.m., officers with the Eureka Police Department responded to a sporting goods store on the 3600 block of Broadway for the report of a theft of two handguns.

The suspect is described as a white male, in his 20’s, thin build. He was wearing a red hat, glasses, gray sweatshirt, tan cargo pants, blue and white shoes, and a blue bandana around his neck.

Anyone with information relating to this incident is asked to call the Eureka Police Department.

Update: Now with video of the suspect failing to smoothly exit the scene.

UPDATE 7:16 p.m.: According to Chief Andrew Mills, the Lollipop Bandit was captured. “Officers got him [with] a gun,” he confirmed. We’ll update with more details when we learn them.
UPDATE 8:11 p.m.: The suspect is David Aumiller.

  • Wow! I thought they were only allowed to remove one item at a time? Same with jewelry stores. I hope they get them. We all know where they will end up… local heroin dealers.

  • Or sold/traded to gangs in eureka, guns are one of their money makers

  • What does this idiot have in his mouth–a Tootsie Roll Pop? Fake glasses and a lollipop. Real class act.

  • Employee responsible should be fired! Too f.ckin dumb to work at a gun shop.

  • Usually when showing a semi auto there is no magazine in the weapon. I hope that is the case here.

  • Is this the next stop and rob bandit? One made every minute. [edit]

  • Too bad he didn’t run out in front of a speeding garbage truck

  • He’s been caught. I’m sure someone watching the news turned him in.
    Didn’t say if the guns were recovered. I certainly hope the were.

  • Thanks for getting this POS off the street that he kissed trying to get away. Let’s hope all the guns are found.

  • Hey gun theft suspect David Aumiller – did you enjoy your trip?
