Law Enforcement Have Detained a Man Wearing an Orange Jumpsuit in the Area of the High Rock Conservation Camp
We have received multiple reports of a man in an orange jumpsuit being detained by law enforcement about a mile north of the Honeydew exit including one from Supervisor Estelle Fennell. Yesterday, an inmate, David Carter, fled the High Rock Conservation Camp.
One reader described seeing three CHP going over 90 mph northbound on 101. She said they pulled over just before Redcrest and went “over the guardrail with assault [rifles].”
Another reader, Tori Miclette of
Myers Flat Garberville, said that the man detained matched the photo of the escaped inmate from last night. According to Miclette, she was driving on Hwy 101 when a CHP “passed by really fast.” Then later, “just before the Honeydew offramp, I saw a black man in an orange jumpsuit in cuffs sitting on the side of the road …between two law enforcement vehicles.” Afterwards, she checked our posted photo of the escapee and said, “Definitely, the guy in the photo now that I saw his photo.”
We have not received replies to our calls to the California Department of Corrections and are not able to confirm the man in the orange jumpsuit is Carter.
