HSU Students Being Warned About Suspect in Armed Robbery
Information from Humboldt State University:
The University Police Department is advising the Humboldt State University community to be on the alert for a suspicious individual.
In May 2018, 22-year-old Jesus Alonso, who is not an HSU student, is suspected of being involved in an armed robbery during an illegal drug sale on campus. A criminal investigation by University Police was conducted and forwarded to the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office for review. However, criminal charges against Alonso were not filed, based primarily on a lack of admissible evidence.
Last seen on campus Saturday night, he was asked to leave and has been warned that he is not allowed on campus. Alonso may also be armed and is known to carry a rifle underneath an outer garment, or in a bag.
He is described as 6 feet, 2 inches, 180 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen driving a white 2016 Honda Accord with a California license plate of 7SFF594.
If you see or encounter Alonso on campus, please contact University Police immediately by dialing 911, calling (707) 826-5555 or extension 5555 from any campus phone.
