Humboldt County Sheriff’s Vehicles Gathered in Fortuna Today; Marijuana Arrests and General Buzz About Helicopter Activity
About 10 a.m. today, “at least eight” Humboldt County Sheriff’s vehicles gathered at the River Lodge Conference Center in west Fortuna, according to reports from witnesses. Yesterday, a similar group of Humboldt County Sheriff vehicles congregated in the Carlotta area. Several reports noted they had a chipper. One reader insisted she saw several different convoys.
The information posted by the Sheriff’s Office today indicates that three were arrested yesterday by Humboldt County’s Drug Task Force for growing/cultivating marijuana. These were likely related to the law enforcement convoy/s out Hwy 36.
In what may be a totally unrelated development, Southern Humboldt is buzzing about what appeared to be a series of low flying helicopter reconnaissance flights–reports have come in from Shelter Cove, Blue Slide, and Salmon Creek.
We have requested more information from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office and will update when possible.
