Shell stationJust before 4 a.m., a man wearing all black clothing with a black mask entered the Fortuna Shell station on Riverwalk Drive. According to Lt Matt Eberhardt, “A single suspect entered the business and utilized a reportedly semi-auto handgun.” The suspect took an undisclosed amount of money and left the area on foot.

“There were no injuries to the clerk,” Eberhardt said. The situation is currently under investigation and officers are reviewing the video surveillance in hopes of getting further information.

    “Friendly”

  • I thought this was supposed to be the friendly city, I see more homeless day by day tweakers and generally p o s. We as citizens of Fortuna need to take back our safety, if any degenerates enter your home or property dont we have the right to protect ourselfs, i know i will may not be the right way but i wont let anyone hurt me or my loved ones.

  • HAPPENS EVERYDAY ALL OVER THE WORLD. ITS FREE MONEY. DON’T SNIVEL AFTER YOUR DEAD LAYING ON THE SERVICE STATION FLOOR. CRIME PAYS WELL IF YOU DON’T GET CAUGHT!

  • Meanwhile fortuna pd is doing a speed trap operation on fortuna blvd. how about active patrolling the neighborhoods and take out all the tweaker trash

    • Speed traps in Fortuna bag a hell of a lot of tweakers. It’s usually someone that is jacked up on meth, hauling ass down the Blvd. Can’t count the times I’ve seen guys cuffed and stuffed after a traffic stop. If you don’t think Fortuna PD is doing their job, you haven’t been paying attention. Two years ago you couldn’t walk down the street or get out of your car at a gas station without being slobbered over by some pock marked filthy tweaker, or stinky trimmigrant wanting money. Now it is a rare thing. Hmmmm? Time to give the PD a little credit? This is Kalifornia, and the cops are the ones that are handcuffed. They aren’t the ones that are responsible for all the criminals on the loose. Thank the bleeding heart liberals and your elected officials next time your car or home is broken into.

      • Agreed, the drug epidemic is everywhere but fortuna PD has been doing more than anywhere else to keep it at bay. I wish other cities would follow in suit.

        • Citizen on patrol

          never said the pd wasn’t doing its job, was just wanting them to focus on the foot traffic up and down the streets in fortuna going to the same drug houses over and over. Officer Beechel is outstanding and takes care of business.

      • ITS JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG, AS YOUR SOCIETY DECAYS FROM DRUGS AND ALCOHOL. THE LAW CANT SUPERVISE EVERYBODY ALL THE TIME, THEY JUST PICKUP WHAT THEY FIND.

  • Saddened by all this

    I wonder where the homeless people SHOULD go. There must be a place where there are jobs for them, & houses they can afford, right? They are just too lazy, right? Oh, and drug addicts. There must be treatment available somewhere, right?

    • i dont understand why you enable subhuman existence. those who cant or wont be productive of their own initiative should be given work to do, not another handout. id prefer to see a person live with self respect and dignity rather than be “free” to make poor choices. homelessness should not be an “alternative lifestyle”. inclusion over freedom

  • Sorry shitty they deleted me again this site is beginning to suck.

    • Don’t worry I think kym sees my name and deletes me. I’ll go for feeding her information instead…but in my line of work I think I’ll be breaking protacall and liability actions.

    • Trump Is A Traitor

      Dude, I actually had a response to one of your posts earlier that was deleted. Someone asked if your online name came about as a result of vehicle ownership, and I made a smart-ass comment that for the life of me I cannot figure out why it was deleted.

      Please let me know if this offends you sufficiently to necessitate deletion from this blog:

      “I thought they called you the roadrunner, because you run really fast, get chased constantly by an incompetent coyote, and say MEEP MEEP for no reason.”

      Seriously, that was deleted for some unexplained reason.

  • For instance how come the cops have never busted the s*** hole on rohnerville Road Frank Middleton Place and one next to it Floyd’s hoysingtons dump . There’s been dopers in and out of there for 25 plus years but Fortuna’s Finest would rather catch you talking on your cell phone ,and look at you like you shot their mother when they catch you.ive even asked the chief of police. He didn’t have answer the gist that I got it was just too much trouble to f*** with it.

  • Glad that didn’t happen when I worked there, as the first hippie gas station attendant in Humboldt (circa 1973)!!

  • About time that all these 24hr gas/market stations put a buzzer lock on their doors for selected hours. The worker has to see you and you have to look at a camera, with no hood, for a photo to get let in. Either that or put bullet proof glass at the counters.

  • Mr guest you have a point ,but why is it they look the other way because when it comes to the Middleton s*** hole on rohnerville Road watching scumbags go in and out of there getting dope for years and years and years like every time I drive by it’sa blight on the friendly City. Just my observations over the last 25 years.
