UPDATE Sunday: Victim Describes Myers Flat Home Invasion



  • Is it just me or has there really been an increase in robberies lately?

    • Desperate times. There’s no money left in growing it but stolen weed is pure profit. Expect much more of this type of thing as our local economy crashes.

      • Stinky Wizzleteats


      • She’s still stuck with having to pay the taxes on it too, I imagine.

      • Great observation,current prices & old habits cause the “green rush”crime rates to soar.The folks who put brand Humboldt on the map wil be hit hardest.

      • Growers are getting a taste of what it’s like to be a real farmer: hard work for a modest income. Just cause the days of million dollar harvests for mom and pop are gone doesn’t mean there’s no money in it. If you want to continue to grow change your lifestyle.

        • Unpaid Excise Taxes on Monday

          There were never days of million dollar harvests for “Mom & Pop”. Unfortunately all the -Come-latelys working for the County and State regulators believed the bullshit, and got greedy, before reading the tea leaves. The only ones to survive at this rate are the ones skirting the rules. Following the rules gets you f#^ked. SC labs was failing 20% of tests. 14% for asperilligus, for the 2016 Emerald Cup. It’s worse now. (But can you find any data on this? Supervisors? Regulatory results aren’t very transparent) You just breathed in 5 spores reading this, it’s so common. try imagining 20 % of cows you ship getting delivered, then being unsaleable.( then stolen and sold on the black market) What if 1 out of 5 log trucks’ loads had to be burned?( then stolen) Thats only if you can get a distributor to look at it. They are busy selling their own weed.( and the “failed” shit out the back, I suspect) The Counties went crazy charging high fees on the most forthcoming, honest, and together growers. They are charging the excise taxes only on the 200 farms that had their shit togetherthe 1,300 incomplete, late, and inadequate applications get a free pass, while the good ones go bankrupt. There is absolutely ZERO incentive to go legal now, maybe with the slight exception of selling shake.

    • Doom and Gloom for most of the country sad to say are County Supervisors sucking the blood out of Humboldt while Trump and his cohorts and the big bankers suck the money out of the entire country well the real Revolution starts in the garden growing food the green man knows the way stop paying taxes to the corporate greed

      • OR you could all clean up, grow up, and stop being giant babies high on dope and stupidity. Stop promoting drugs. Stop dressing like gangsters and driving grow dozers. Stop watching fantasy porn on Netflix and playing video games all day long. GROW UP, NOT GROW DOPE. Blame yourselves, not the president. He inherited the vile society you all made. This is an adolescent, criminal county, filled with crybaby gangsta wannabes and old dieheard hippie stoners, fat-bellied leftist traitors and media-obsessed teenagers. Makes me sick.

        • Oh yeah, you sound really grown up. Got anymore hate filled stereotyping you want to do before continuing with your mature day in wonka wonka land.

        • “ . . old diehard hippie stoners . .”

          You mean the Only ones who walked out on, one of the: ALL wars are, banker’s war? You mean the rock stars of the past – cuz they were all r e a l high. You mean the “baby boomers” largest generation on planet Earth . . . ever wonder why?

          What was it? Move, —something, something, — or get out of the way.

        • Try looking at it like a real business, like agriculture. You can’t do it. Voters legalized the product. Regulators are treating the ones who came forward like criminals, and not making decisions that promote the legal markets. Your prejudiced comments illustrate the attitude taken by politicians and regulators. Why shouldn’t legit Farmers take on a new crop? well right now if you run the numbers, and observe the results only 3 months into the first “legal” harvest, you’d see bankruptcy, any slight profit from a part-time seasonal crop goes to over eager regulatory agencies who don’t DO anything but bill you.
          Better to stay with what you know, like Artichokes, and Strawberries.

          • “Better to stay with what you know, .. .”

            LEGAL OR LAWFUL?
            It is crucial to define the difference between “legal” and “lawful.” The generic Constitution references genuine law. The present civil authorities and their courts use the word “legal.” The following is from A Dictionary of Law (1893):

            Lawful. In accordance with the law of the land; according to the law; permitted, sanctioned, or justified by law. “Lawful” properly implies a thing conformable to or enjoined by law.

            Legal. Latin legalis. Pertaining to the understanding, the exposition, the administration, the science and the “practice” of law: as the legal profession, legal advice; legal blanks, newspaper. “Legal” looks more to the ‘letter of the law’ [form]. And “lawful” to the spirit of the law. “Legal” is that the proceeding is correct in method, that rules prescribed have been obeyed. A writ or warrant issuing from any court, under color of law, is a “Legal” process, however defective.

            Legal matters administrate, conform to, and follow rules. They are equitable in nature and are implied (presumed) rather than actual (express). A legal process can be defective in law. To be legal a matter does not have to follow the law.

            Lawful matters are ethically enjoined in the law of the land – the law of the people – and are actual in nature, not implied. This is why whatever true law was upheld by the organic Constitution has no bearing or authority in the present day “Legal” courts. It is impossible for anyone in “authority” today to access, or take cognizance of, true law since “authority” is the “law of necessity.” 12 U.S.C. 95.

            Therefore, it would appear that the meaning of the word “Legal” is the “color of law.”

        • No what we have here is a lack of respect for others, a lack of compassion, and most of all a lack of love for your fellow beings. I wish you and your family the best for the holidays.

      • My favorite go to news site always brightens my spirit.
        Maybe it will help to brighten yours.

        • I went to that site and the first story I saw was about a soldier prosecuted for attempting to provide material support to ISIS. How hypocritical, when it’s common knowledge the US military and our tax dollars created and support ISIS, AL Qaeda and the other jihadist groups that mushroomed after 9/11 and Bush’s illegal war against Iraq and Afghanistan and continue to kill innocents in places like Syria. Now that corporate America has their ducks in a row and their hands in the pie from both the regulatory and industry angles, cannabis will become America’s latest end-stage capitalist commodity. Hopefully, scientists will continue to discover the herb’s medicinal properties, however I expect profits over people will keep the price of any medicinal advancements high. When laws are writ and bent to benefit the few, those who live outside them must be honest. Everybody knows the deal is rotten. All power to the people.

      • what money is Trump taking from the country? do you know what you are talking about? are you sure the bailouts for banks werent from another president?

        • I’m sure the tax cuts for the wealthy came from your fat boy.

          • There were no tax cuts for the wealthy. In fact, the wealthy pay way more than regular folks. The top one half of one percent pay 20% of all taxes, the top %20 percent pay %80, etc. Stop listening to the communist idiots who lie every day about this stuff. Find a decent news outlet, or look up the tax rates and amounts for yourself, instead of being one of the sheep who cannot think for themselves. To be honest, finding ways to not pay taxes is the best way. This state and county are thieves and need to be starved. Our underground economy can fiscally bring this county to it’s knees if we do it right. Why feed assholes? Pay cash, or barter, and corporate America can starve.

            • Kinda hard to drive on roads that the government can’t fix. Kinda hard to go to Garberville Hospital when they don’t have the support from taxes.

              • We don’t need the government to fix our roads! They certainly don’t fix most roads in sohum with the money they steal from us(taxes). I live on a 30 mile long private road. The residents voluntarily pay to maintain it. It’s usually better maintained than the county roads. Why couldn’t that just happen all the way to town? Why couldn’t a similar model be applied to the hospital? There’s a private alternative for everything

                • There are private roads that people pay to maintain. Sometimes it works. On my private road there are several people who have lived there for decades and have rarely if ever contributed towards the upkeep. And then there are others who pay double.

                  The private model has its issues. I suspect you’ll see them as cannabis prices continue to fall and money to fix roads becomes more scarce. It’s one thing to pay for maintenance costs. And another to replace a whole section that slid out and will cost millions to replace. How for instance will the private model work on Last Chance Grade?

                • 30 Miles? thats almost Ettersburg to Trinity County!
                  people have a hard time processing how much wealth the richest have. if you earn more than you can spend in a life time you should pay it back. most of the wealthiest inherited it. they earn more than you can spend in your lifetime just from interest on wealth generated generations ago. Remember when “America was Great” we also had higher tax rates on the wealthy. After WWII only one person was in the top tax bracket. That is how we built the Interstate Highways. Used to be you drove two lane roads across the country. You wouldn’t be able to buy your Amazon Crap like that. A person on disability, who worked their whole life, makes $10,000 a year. there are people earning $10,000,000 a year, who don’t do shit. If $10,000 is a millimeter, $10,000,000 is a meter. If One Billion is a Kilometer, that $10000 is only a centimeter. some people live on the centimeter, some live on a kilometer. Look up the income of Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Kim Kardashian! They aren’t THAT much better than you! Why defend those assholes’ wealth?

                • Someone, whether it’s paid by taxes or by private subscription, always gives more and some always pay nothing. The people who pay more sometimes complain about it but apparently the people who pay nothing object to that.

              • Wrong Kym, It’s not can’t fix, it’s won’t fix. We pay 60 cents a gallon to the state, and they put it in the general fund and squander it on vote-buying social programs. End welfare, you breed them, you feed them. So lame, yet able bodied, and you can’t feed yourself in the most prosperous country on the planet, starve. Want to know where the road money goes? Start with the bloated bureaucracy called Cal-Trans. There’s a fine line between compassion and stupidity.

              • But, SHCHD actually received the support of 75.42% of the 10% of registered voters who actually voted for the district tax. So now they can continue to waste your taxes, operate the hospital-like facility with a staff of predominantly women (because women can be paid less and they won’t complain, apparently),
                when they refuse to provide women’s health in a meaningful amount. And, since the hospital is largely supported by the State and Federal Government, through Medicare and Medi-cal payments, it IS actually supported by taxes! Just not taxes from pot-farmers, who of course, do not pay taxes. Also, if you are in your right mind, why would you want to consume care at SoHum Health? Oh yes, they changed the name since they have a poor product, are poorly regarded by the general public, fail to hire with diversity, and, have discriminatory and unfairly applied internal policies, which they may or may not follow… At least they made the un-elected board members stand for election, finally… Proving that they follow my advice, sooner or later!

  • Disgusting supervisors

    Abatement. Sit back and watch the sad show. Only the beginning

    • Remember even if you paid the one to three dollar tax per square foot you are still shit out of luck.
      Recall Estelle!

  • Maybe if locals stop hiring illegal immigrants to work their LEGAL farms it would reduce the amount of illegal imagrants n the area n some local and legal residents could get some jobs

    • Maybe if most locals where not lazy drug users , oh and most are not dependable and have a outlook unlike others who come and are thankful for the opportunity as a local would most likely (not always ) cost more , use more , and complain more . Give me the Hmong, [Edit: Bulgarians] , Spain..etc . Don’t get me wrong hella good locals , but deff 9 times outta 10 I would never hire a local.

      • Importing people who have not been injected with the entitlement disease then doing everything that can be done to ensure that they know they are automatically exploited is like grabbing the tiger’s tail. It can never be let go but must always import fresh people who have not yet be conditioned to think of themselves as victims because they are not equal in every aspect without working for it.

        Since this is the very exploitation so complained of, these imported workers are easily persuaded they are abused. The next generation will certainly be both hostile and have an aggrieved sense of entitlement. Such is the reward of a schizophrenic social theory of belief in owing people a decent life without requiring hard work simultaneously with objecting to the laziness and truculence that this very idea creates.

  • Am curious WHERE she was. In Myers Flat town? Or in the nearby hills? How far off 101/the beaten track? Many of us live 10-15 miles from the town of our ‘address’. So, those details are pertinent. It matters to those of us watching industry trends.

    • I don’t usually give addresses of victims. I’m sure you would feel victimized twice if that were you.

      • Understand. And absolutely! Was just looking for a general approximation of whether it was in town or away in the hills. (The sad irony is that with a permit, the address of the farm is public record and available to those who ask).

    • The truck stolen from the Wilder Ridge rip-off was dumped on the ‘Avenue. Did they drive home, or just to the heroin dealer?

  • political moderate

    Weed deal gone sour?

  • Did she have a permit? Me thinks not, so haha shame on you greedy grower. No sympathy, go get a job and pay taxes like the rest of us.

  • why so many negative coments….like willie mahem….wow go back to lost coast thunderdome,naysayer

    • Ouvh the permits are not cheap to get or maintain. Excise taxes were due in Friday.
      Then property taxes . Ouch!! Trying to get compliant and pay the bills has been hard!!

      • I’m ready to hear how many are late on tuesday. ( less than 300 have even received the excise tax bills. we had to pay twice the area we grew in 2017, and 150% of what we grew this year, plus $8,000in staff time bills, all this last year. thats $26,000 [almost a teacher’s salary] prior to any sales, and prior to the other 1200 grows who filed half assed)Will the Supes study, and admit the percentage who are late in public? The first, most complete applications get punished. the slackers got a free pass. If you turned in a late or incomplete application: no bill. If you got to the point of track and trace you’re done. If a distribution place even wants to look at outdoor flower, you have a 50/50 chance you will lose your weed to testing for a non problem. Labs are testing for DNA of one of the most common fungal spores around. you breath in 1,000 a day of asperilligus, but no dna allowed on weed. even though humans have been smoking worse for thousands of years. I don’t know a single permitted farm that has successfully sold permited flower on the white market. Meanwhile Black market prices are half what they were last year. That demonstrates a pretty clear failure on the part of regulators. Good job bankrupting the most honest players in the biz.

  • You guys are really something . So many homes are being broken into in Redway . All over really . You act like people Deserve it . Shame on you .

  • Legalization breeds crime, it will get worse before it gets better.

  • Wow. So many robberies lately! But if people think legalization is going to end this.. your wrong. Unfortunately. I mean banks get robbed all the time, and they are a legal industry.
    It is very unfortunate that the supervisors, most notably Estelle decided to enact policies tanking the economy. To be fair it is not just he county. It is also the state enacting very skewed laws. For example.. to get a nursery licenses is like $5000 for one year, for any size. And it is ridicuously regulated because the state is afraid of plants enter the “black market”. But it is extremely ridiculous regulation because that has not stopped the BM before, and one mother plant in a closet can literally turn out 100’s and 100’s of clones. You can’t even sell to your plants to another farmer without a nursery license.. wtf! Maybe this is the wrong thread for this. My condolences to the victim! I am super afraid this might be the new norm in the triangle. Watch out! 🍀

    • When a government falls into idolatry, it collects information from you because it must know where everyone and everything is, in order to tax or seize it. The Age of Deception must end.

      Thus amplifying awareness and sharing truth becomes vitally important – thank you for your post Small Fly.

      Never depend upon institutions or government to solve any problem. All social movements are founded by, guided by, motivated and seen through by the passion of individuals.

    How do I love this story? Let me count the ways…

    An Interim Permit is NOT a permit! Why are you producing 100, no wait, 30 pounds of weed, anyway? What is more illegal, growing stupid amounts, or selling it, or stealing it?

    You. Are. A. Lawbreaker!

    Sorry, no sympathy.

    Under current law, it is illegal to possess, sell, or buy 100 or 30 pounds of your precious but useless Marijuana. Reporting to the police that your drugs were stolen, seems specious, infantile, delusional, puerile. You are obviously somebody who feels that they are “above” the law, so, tough beans! Get some thugs of your own to protect your drug crop, or buy one of those Benelli Autoloaders that the Vaqueros of Trinity appear to be so fond of, and learn to use it!

    Meanwhile, don’t make drug-deals with strangers! It’s your problem only, if your drugs get jacked by pirates! What did you expect? Normal sensible commerce with ordinary drug-dealers in Humboldt? Out in the boonies of Myers Flat?

    You yourself might be not too sensible, or maybe you’re just stoned…

    Meanwhile, guys, not everybody should participate in drug dealing! It’s a shady occupation, the cops and just about anyone else, they just don’t care if you suck at drug dealing and get your drugs stolen! And then say that it was 100, no wait, 30 pounds! Who cares? Make it 10,000 pounds! No difference! Nobody cares!

    When you use, you lose! When you grow, someone will know!

    Yesterday is history,
    Tomorrow’s a mystery,
    Today is a gift!
    That’s why we call it the present!

    Good luck, and good night!

    • I think you have a fundamental misunderstanding of cannabis law. An interim permit allows the cultivator to sell cannabis while they are in the process of getting their actual permit. In addition, 100 pounds is not a large amount of tomatoes, grapes, etc. Nor is it considered a large amount of cannabis legally. Nor is there any limit on how much cannabis poundage that can be grown only how much land can be cultivated.

      Under current state law, which the Federal government is agreeing to abide by, the grower may possess or sell whatever is grown in their legally permitted area.

      I learned of no indication that the cultivator was doing a drug deal with strangers. But rather that the home was invaded by strangers.

      Reading this, I am considering instituting a new rule that attacking the victims of a crime will get you deleted. Disagreement is one thing and healthy discussion about that is necessary but such an outpouring of insults is neither healthy nor productive.

      • Yeaa Kym!

        Sometimes it’s good to have the enemy’s plan* spelled out – condensed for me.

        Thanks 😛

        *meaning i don’t read code.

      • Groba dude trustafarian osnt

        I think you should have a new rule which deals with heavily reported stories that don’t sound true…

        I am not the only one who doesn’t believe some of the reports on this blog…

        • I find my tolerance for being insulted by a person who likes to insult the area I love greatly is not as strong as I would like it to be.

          • I like stars too!

            Well it would be pointless to argue Cannabis Law with a Humboldt County pot farmer, in any case. Growing a lot of drugs does not necessarily it make legal, and if dope were free, as it should be, people would probably still steal it!

            The point here is, yes, it’s very naughty, and totally wrong to break into someone’s house, or even enter the house without permission. The account of this crime, is, however, sketchy.

            My advice, if you have your weed stolen, don’t tell a story that sounds untrue. You might not want to answer the door at night in certain locations in Humboldt, like most of it, if you grow weed.

            Dealing drugs is not for the faint of heart, and is hardly a sensible occupation. Whether or not it’s legal, it’s known to be dangerous, so a word to the wise…

    • Billy[edit]. I guess it is difficult for you to keep up with the changing times.

      • Billy Casomorphin

        I’m sick?


        Sober? Straight?


        Non-drug users, reformed pot-smokers, recovered alcoholics, all will tell you that being clean is better than being high! RamDass and Tim Leary said it, and I believe!

        You too can get high without chemicals, alcohol and marijuana! Try it!

        Smoking pot is for idiots! And people who are “sick”…

        Pot should have been legalized in 1972 with prop 19, but the people decided to continue to jail people and waste money on prohibition for another 45 years. I used to smoke dope, and now I wish I hadn’t wasted my time with it. At least the harm should go out of it, eventually, but I worry about the future, the major healthcare problems we face behind addiction to high potency cannabis and cannabis concentrates.

        If that is sick, then how about this: pot should be free, it should grow everywhere (and eventually, it will).
        If you rely on income from pot farming, get ready, for the times will change for you, too!

        And careful, you could get censored for insulting!
