On 04/24/15 at about 6:08 a.m., Officers from the Eureka Police Department were dispatched to the vicinity of Dean and 16th Streets for the report of a suspicious male and female who were checking door handles of vehicles. Several callers directed officers to the location of the suspects.
Officers located Trevor Adam Gibney, 25, and Misty Marie Mililgan, 29, both of Eureka, at the 2200 block of Harrison Ave. Gibney was searched per his probation status and was found to be in possession of property not belonging to him. Milligan told officers that Gibney had smashed a vehicle window and removed property from inside and gave it to her. Officers were able to locate two vehicles in the vicinity that had been broken into. Some of the property located in Gibney’s possession contained the names of the vehicle owners.
Gibney and Milligan were arrested for burglary and probation violations. Milligan was booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility. Gibney was medically declined by jail staff due to an existing injury and was transported to the hospital for evaluation. He was ultimately cleared and transported back to the jail for booking.
