[UPDATE 8:40 a.m.] ‘Morning Meeting’ of Law Enforcement at the Dyerville Overlook off Hwy 101
Readers have been letting us know that there is a gathering of law enforcement at the Dyerville Overlook off Hwy 101 near Founders Grove north of Weott.
“There was probably 50 to 100 sheriff cars, sheriff trucks, unmarked vehicles…,” reported one reader. He said when he drove by there were officers “putting on bullet proof vests” and having “a morning meeting.”
However, another witness said she saw “there was about six or seven Sheriff’s with a chipper.”
We’ll be updating with a more accurate count when we can get information.
UPDATE 8:40 a.m.: We spoke to Lt. Ken Swithenbank of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office and, while of course, he couldn’t tell us where the crew were heading, he did say that there must be around 15 vehicles. “There are at least five of us, then County Code Enforcement, Fish and Game, and other agencies,” he said.
