On Friday, 07-08-2016 at 7:30 a.m. the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office and the Arcata Police Department assisted the Humboldt County Drug Task Force with a Humboldt County Superior Court search warrant at a residence located in the 800 block of Wiley Court, Arcata.

When officers arrived at the residence they set up a perimeter. Officers then knocked on the front door to announce themselves as law enforcement and they had a search warrant. Officers then noticed a male suspect later identified as 33 year old Dustin James Daher climbing onto the roof of the residence. Officer then made entry into the residence and detained a female inside. The female was later released with no charges. No other subjects were located inside of the residence.

Officers were aware that Daher had multiple arrest warrants including one for resisting arrest. Daher was lying on the floor on his stomach with his hands underneath him next to his waistband.

Officers attempted to grab Daher’s hands and were giving him verbal command to put his hands behind his back. Daher refused the officers command and was actively resisting their attempts to place him into handcuffs. Several Officers had to forcibly place Daher’s into handcuffs and as he continued to physically resist their commands to comply with being handcuffed. After Daher was placed into handcuffs he was transported to a local hospital to be treated for a minor injury he received during his arrest.

  • Oh the hypocrisy. Only yesterday there was an article advertising hash oil. Just goes to show the truth behind the cannabiz.

  • LEO that cannot safely and confidently take a man down is in the wrong job

    • Normally I wouldn’t say anything, but with all of the anti-police sentiment going around lately I am compelled to support the police when a person doesn’t do what they are told to do. I am not passing judgement on what the person was doing to attract the officers attention.

      Once once the law is on your door step it is completely stupid to do anything but what they tell you to do. That should be part of your pre-plan if you intend to engage in criminal activity. If you are not a criminal you have even less reason to run and be stupid.

      To do anything but comply is dangerous to everyone near you, the officers, and especially yourself.

      Man-up, and don’t endanger yourself and others. Yes there are bad cops. We should all be vigilant and report bad cop activity. However, for the very most part, cops are good and they are out there protecting us from stupid people that think they can make crime pay instead of getting a job. We should all thank a cop!

      • At least 75% of police are corrupt in one way or another. The targeting of cetain people for crimes due to race or whatever it be while others don’t get charged with same crimes is another big issue.
        These are main reasons we’re having all these issues, the ones we hear about are only a slight percentage of how often it hapoens, be it beatings, sexual violations, taking private pay under the table from businesses for “extra security”, or just plain stealing of property and money during police raids. And they know they can get away with it! Thats the scariest part. They remind me of gangs.

        If you’ve never dealt with a violent cop then lucky you, but remember you don’t know that feeling when it’s made clear someone with authority and a gun knows they can do whatever they want to you with no repurcussions. Its scary in a whole different way. Like watching a cop kick someone’s head in while saying “stop hitting my boot” & then arrest said person for assault on a cop. (Personally witnessed that one a few times)

        And hey HCSO get a new writer, the suspects full name was never even listed in the release? Did I miss it?

        • No, I am appalled to say that I somehow deleted his name. I’ve restored it.

        • The article is not about bad cops, but the opposite, good ones trying to do their job. Meth and hash labs go hand in hand in Humboldt. Wake up

        • Reality check
          If you witnessed inappropriate behavior by a cop I hope that you reported it. One report will certainly be ignored, but the cop is told about it and it is put in his file. After 35 or so reports of bad behavior the management will begin to pay attention. Cops have been let go for bad behavior, but it takes citizen reporting them. To not report bad cops is also stupid. I know that I have witnessed some bad behavior that I didn’t report myself, guilty. We need to start paying attention to bad cops and support the good ones until we have a good police force. Give me a better choice if you have one. I’m pretty certain that anarchy doesn’t work.

    • You expect…” Come here Mr. Bad Guy I have some handcuffs for you. Oh you don’t want to go?! Ok we will try again tomorrow.”????


  • Thanks law enforcement for getting another Humboldt hypocrite off the streets for a bit .Such a huge problem why our local leaders can’t call it a crisis is beyond me.

    • I call them hippycrites™®

      • I love it. A good example is a liberal that preaches free speech then gets upset and censors someone when they don’t agree with their opinion, especially true with hippies and dopers.

        • There’s freedom of speech and freedom of hate speech and i have the right to be upset with the feedom & acceptance of your hate speech

          • roundandroundwego

            lol, you do not get to define what speech is to the rest of us…you can run your mouth all u want but u do not get to define speech for anyone, ever.

        • I call those liberazi’s™®… basically Nazi liberals.

  • Not as fast at 33 as he was at 23. Time to mellow out. Settle down. please don’t have kids.
