Press release from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office:

HCSO Humboldt County Sheriff's Office BlurOn Sunday, March 20, 2016, at about 6:39 p.m. a Humboldt County Deputy Sheriff observed a stolen vehicle pass his location on School Rd, McKinleyville. The vehicle was a silver 2003 Ford truck. The deputy attempted to pull the truck over but the driver attempted to evade the deputy by turning behind Ray’s Food Place. The truck stopped and a passenger jumped out of the vehicle and fled. The driver continued to drive behind K-Mart, where he then parked and fled the vehicle. The deputy immediately apprehended the driver, a 16 year old male.

The 16 year old male was taken to Juvenile Hall where he was booked for vehicle theft, possession of a stolen vehicle, and fleeing from a traffic officer. The vehicle was returned to the owner. The second suspect is still outstanding.

  • Sounds like another dirtbag is starting his criminal life in Macktown. Congrats to the officer for getting him, but I am sure the punk kid will be back out doing his thing quite soon!

    • Get off yer HIGH horse

      Whatever, Dick. He’s probably from Eureka and just got busted in McK. Way to assume and generalize, tho.

  • Yes the white kid gang in mckville is pretty bad!!! For real.
    White kids playing the gangsters they see&hear are often worse than the real deal. And they get arrested way less often so am glad to see a sheriff follow through.

    I would like to see a running list like the stabbing one Oliver started that lists random vs non-random crimes, crimes by juveniles and crimes by gang members.
    I think we’d all be surprised how few crimes tweekers can actually pull off.
