[UPDATE 1:45 p.m.] Two Detained, Three in the Bush on Island Mountain After Pursuit
The officers eventually managed to stop the suspects. By what means is unknown. Two of the suspects were
arrested detained but two three managed to elude capture.
Neighbors in the area are advised to lock cars and remove keys as well as be alert for suspicious activities.
UPDATE 10:15 a.m.: According to Sgt. Tamera L McCanless of the California Highway Patrol, the suspects were wanted for “a theft from Rays Food Place in Garberville.” She added in a voice message to us that there is “no reason to believe they were armed or otherwise dangerous.”
I hope to be able to speak to her later today and gather more information.
