[UPDATE 9:25 a.m.] Operation Connected to an Attempted Homicide, Say Sheriff’s Office] Convoy of Humboldt County Sheriff’s Deputies in Miranda
Just before 8 a.m. today, a convoy of seven to eight Humboldt County Sheriff’s vehicles rolled up School Road in Miranda, according to a witness. According to traffic over the scanner radio, Code 33 was declared—only emergency transmission allowed to make sure the line remains clear for officers’ communications. As of 8:10, Code 33 is still in effect even though one person was detained, according to scanner traffic.
We’ve requested more information from the Sheriff’s Office and will update as soon as possible.
UPDATE 8:25 a.m.: An ambulance is staged (waiting at a safe location close to the action but not in it) at the Miranda Market.
UPDATE 8:43 a.m.: According to Lt. Ken Swithenbank of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, two individuals have been detained at this point but “Code 33 [is] still in effect.” This means that officers are still looking for more individuals.
UPDATE 8:57 a.m.: Code 33 is cancelled.
UPDATE 9:20 a.m.: Lt. Swithenbank tells us that this operation was in relation to the woman who was shot in the leg on January 19--an attempted homicide. At this point we don’t know who was detained or what are the charges if they were arrested.
UPDATE 9:25 a.m.: Casey Felt was arrested, Swithenbank tells us. “SWAT just cleared the scene. Detectives [are] remaining on scene for a further investigation.”
