This morning, Sgt. Justin Braud of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Department spotted a vehicle associated with a burglary in Loleta parked at a business at the corner of 4th and Broadway in Eureka. He called for backup. Eureka Police responded as did other deputies.

One suspect fled through the business and out the back. Witnesses reported that he jumped into a utility trailer there and may have been carrying something concealed, possibly a gun, under his shirt. Meanwhile, other law enforcement detained one suspect at the vehicle and located a loaded handgun under the seat of the vehicle, a Dodge Ram, which was discovered to be stolen.

It was determined that the fleeing suspect, Beau McClung of Eureka, had warrants out for his arrest.

‘We took it slow and set up a perimeter,” said Eureka Police captain, Steve Watson. It took repeated calls but, he said, “Fortunately, [McClung] chose to surrender.”

This was great teamwork, Braud said complementing the Eureka Police.  Watson, also, said both the Sheriff’s Department and the EPD worked very well together.

  • Muddy Black Dodge

    Glad they caught em. Parading around in a stolen truck, with a gun or guns. [edit]

  • That’s my old landlord’s son. He stole so much stuff from me, and his dad Bill McClung, my LANDLORD, actually lied and covered for him! I hope that POS gets himself locked up for a long time.

  • Amimissingsomething

    Nice to see spray paint being used for some other crime than tagging! Check out the quality of these late night idiots idea of new paint job…Really sad commentary on Eureka!

  • Honeydew Bridge C.H.U.M.P.

    Stealing for marijuana growers plotting the next 911?

    • more like stealing from everyone. chump this is one of yours. a local redneck loser offspring. he even has the facial hair to go with it.

      • Honeydew Bridge C.H.U.M.P.

        Real rednecks wear cowboy hats and four wheel drive through Neo-Hippie marijuana grows…

        Real rednecks don’t steal-

        We have honor, values, and morals, something weed growing terrorists plotting another 911 to usher in The Marijuana Caliphate will never have.

        We’ll stop you, though.

        If you look at a redneck truck, that dent on the back just above the bumper-

        That’s where we cut hair and shave beards, if you’re in the society.

        You Neo-Hippie types smoke dope, your women grow beards, the men grow breasts and wear tye dye bras, and you free range pit bulls.

        The Redneck Caliphate will rise faster and more solid than The Marijuana Caliphate, plus y’all are in decline, we’ll still be here because a country boy will survive.

        Y’all need to watch Urban Cowboy and get your stereotypes correct.

      • Yep he’s been ripping off for years. Also deals drugs.

    • dont feed the trolls

  • omg Mr chump you realy should seek processional help. any way I wonder why the
    bridge Ville carlotta highway 36 resident deputy is doing In pukereaka or tweekreaka no wonder I’ve never seen him posted up on highway36 on patrol,yet if he would just write tickets to all the jackasses that got to get to the depo to pull the tarps ,so that just proves we get nothing .he is the deputy with the blond hair arresting the prep. if he even busted speeders he could save a lot of lives ,so now I know why. I guess we no longer have a resident deputy. look on the bright side the deputy got another scumbag Thief off the street until he bails out or OR D,and I just got to say he should be arrested for wearing those hideous pants.

    Good pictures kym… Thrives are parasites

  • Seems like most all arrested these days have warrants. My guess they are for failure to appear for similar offenses or just drugs. Our catch and release court with low bail isn’t making much sense letting criminals out to victimize people over and over. They have no intention of coming back to court on their own, so the ‘revolving door’ just keeps on spinning.

  • >”the bridge Ville carlotta highway 36 resident deputy is doing In pukereaka or tweekreaka”

    They called in a ‘gun’ crime scene. Typically that brings in extra LEO.
    Sheriffs and EPD both on scene.

  • Thanks for the info Mr bozo .
