Fleeing Suspect Injured in Southeastern Humboldt
This morning a number of law enforcement vehicles headed east on the Alderpoint Road in what neighbors are telling us is a raid on a marijuana operation. They stopped at a property off of Belles Road not far from the New Harris Store. A Fish and Wildlife Warden was chasing a fleeing suspect when the suspect fell injuring his ankle, according to Lt. Dennis Young of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office.
According to residents, a medical helicopter flew to the scene, landing at the intersection of Alderpoint Road and Bell Springs Road to pick up the injured person.
We have not been able to reach a Fish and Wildlife spokesperson for more information. We have requested more information and will update when possible.
