This is a press release from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. The information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty:

Deputies investigating the theft of a utility terrain vehicle (UTV) made a big discovery Monday in Southern Humboldt.

On Sunday, Jan. 14, 2018 around 11 a.m. deputies were dispatched to a business on the 3500 block of Redwood Dr. in Redway for the report of a stolen UTV. The business reported that the UTV was stolen sometime during the night on Jan. 13.

On Jan. 15, a sheriff’s deputy received a crime tip that the subjects responsible for the theft were possibly camped in a trailer at Dean Creek Resort. Following up on the lead, deputies arrived at Dean Creek Resort and noticed a trailer matching the tip’s description. Deputies discovered that the trailer was reported stolen out of Hidden Valley. Deputies also located a plastic hood piece to a UTV with distinct and custom painted graphics matching those of the stolen UTV.

Deputies surrounded the trailer and requested all occupants exit. The occupants eventually complied. Deputies detained 39-year-old MITCHELL Jason Joseph Mitchell and 25-year-old Cameren Michelle Boudreaux.

During a search of the trailer, deputies located four firearms, a high capacity magazine, ammunition, several pounds of marijuana packaged for sale and $6,000 cash.
Boudreaux was arrested on outstanding Sonoma County warrants for the following charges: possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, false identification to a peace officer and violation of probation.

Mitchell was arrested on the following charges: felon in possession of a firearm, felon in possession of ammunition, buying or receiving a stolen vehicle or equipment.
This case is still under investigation. Anyone with information regarding this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Office at (707) 445-7251 or the Sheriff’s Office Crime Tip line at (707) 268-2539.



  • unbridled phillistine

    You have 6000 bucks and you hide out in stolen trailer? Huh? Prisons full of dumb criminals.

  • Ya that was my utv there pieces of shit go to hell

    • Was the entire utv recovered?

    • unbridled phillistine

      LE should have stacked all the charges they could! No detachable clips, Extended mag. Everything.

    • Jacob, If I were you I’d check for tracks along the river behind Dean’s Creek. They may have stashed it. There’s a person who lives under the bridge there- ask if they’ve seen it. Also, take a drive around Fortuna, especially near 12th st. The Fortuna police won’t check to see if something’s stolen even it’s right in front of their nose. Even if you call them and tell them where it is! I know from experience when my jet ski was stolen from John’s place. Those people probably don’t live there any more but it’s worth a try. A “watch for stolen UTV” with a photo on craig’s list doesn’t hurt either. When my JS was stolen I got a call from someone who saw it.

  • They are most likely out all ready!

  • They won’t be in jail long enough even to receive mail

  • Hopefully I can pick up that bump stock at the next auction

  • Wow, great neighbors to have at Dean Creek. The place is just not what it once was.

    • I sold Dean Creek in 2003 last time I was back to visit my daughter and family I was afraid to even drive through the place. Who owns/ runs the place now?😰Yikes!Bonnie G

  • Let’s see. Bunch of guns. Stolen UTV. Bunch of weed. 6 grand. 39 year old sleaze ball and a 25 years old meth face picked girl living in a stolen trailer. Yep. Sounds just like SoHum. Use that one for the next Chamber of commerce meeting.

  • Humboldt turning,into a bad joke and we all know it kym. Mirandas upswing doesnt make a dent. Get real!
    The legalization you helped smile us into reamed everyones ass so hard its hard to sit and relax these days.

    • Financially, Humboldt County is all hurting. I had hoped we would have prepared better for what I felt is both inevitable and morally right. Yes, I voted for legalization and yes, I think it was the right thing to do. Not for Humboldt or the Emerald Triangle but for the greater humanity–you know the folks whose whole life gets messed up because they have a drug (a marijuana) charge. Not to mention, minorities and poor people suffer in disproportionate numbers from illegality. Legalization here and in other states is a step towards decent scientific research which might and probably will lead to lives being saved and lives being improved. In addition, the cost of the drug war is enormous and the money could be better spent. So I hope I helped “smile us” into legalization. I wish I had convinced our leaders to support the small farmer more and keep the economic base solid here in our area.

  • No sights on that AR. I guess he was going to rely on the power of prayer.
