This is a press release from the Humboldt 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:
On 07-10-17 a Main Station Patrol Sergeant was traveling through the city of Eureka when he saw a vehicle parked in the 500 block of Broadway Street. He recognized the vehicle which was reportedly involved in several local burglaries. Standing near the vehicle he saw 40 year old Beau McClung and a female. The Sergeant turned around and drove up to the vehicle. At this point McClung disappeared from view. The female was contacted and later released. The associated vehicle returned as stolen and during a search of the vehicle a loaded Glock 19 pistol was located. While still on scene the Sergeant learned that McClung had been seen running from the area. An additional citizen reported McClung had crawled into a nearby trailer and hid. It was unknown if McClung was still armed.
With the help of the Eureka Police Department the trailer was surrounded and McClung surrendered without incident. McClung was booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility for possession of stolen property and felon in possession of a firearm.
