  • Who cares Obamas gone

    • No he’s not. He’s finally coming to get your guns! Watch out, now he’s finally coming for some random, worthless, paranoid jerk like you!

      Actually, Trump and Jeff Sessions are about to start locking up weed growers again. Also, Trump has already been taking away peoples’ gun rights [edit]

      • “Also, Trump has already been taking away peoples’ gun rights, but you’re too stupid to notice.”

        Would you care to elaborate? He has only been president for 2 days.

  • Lmao. What is this area coming to?

  • This fucking county I swear, if this was at the Eureka Campus’s library and it is the atm in that hallway by the bathrooms then the security office was literally 100 feet away… Were they caught? Glad they found the truck

  • HEY! Everyone in Humboldt! You are not high/drunk enough if you can:

    Find your car keys.
    Afford gas for your god-damn pickup.
    Tell the difference between a Dodge and a Toyota.

    Best go do some more drugs, I recommend a combination of Vodka, Meth, Smack, Xanax, Stupidity Weed, and, OH go down to the clinic and get some Fentanyl patches!

    Hopefully THAT will make you druggies stop breathing, since death is what you seek anyway!

    As for everyone in the 5% of the population busy making a living while clean and sober, doing something other than selling drugs, growing instant stupidity weed, and making illiterate comments on RHBB, guess what, things are no better anywhere else in Northern CA.

  • Wow! I’ve never heard of such a thing. Either the crime is escalating rapidly here or I’m just paying more attention these days.

  • ATM at CR. Financial aid may have come in – basically stealing government money. Not the sharpest tool in the shed obviously. Regardless of a criminals drug status, it’s not the drugs… it’s the person making the decisions. Stop blaming drugs for their/your behavior people. I say take all the druggies and put them on an island. Let them work it out. They will never change. We have too many enabling government agencies tossing money out to these people, why would they work? They don’t have too. They keep having babies and bringing them into “their world” … it’s a vicious cycle. Generations of dysfunction.
    Yes it angers us, however – youth being raised in this is what we have to focus on. Get those babies out of those homes and shelters. If we allow addicts to keep having and raising kids (more kids more welfare money) we are just contributing to the problem. Stop the cycle, these addicts won’t and can’t. Safe our future by saving these children. They have no voice.

    • Many people took this into consideration on November 8. Keep on marching for your rights though Ladies.

    • More people are negatively affected by prescription drugs than by illegal ones. Shall we put them on the island too?

      • An addict is an addict. Some, not all, will get their hands on whatever they can get or what ever they can steal. Being “negatively affected personally” is not the same as Negatively affecting/infecting their children and society with their behaviour. Drive down any street in Eureka and you will see soulless people, who CHOOSE to use and want that lifestyle. It’s everyone’s fault but their own. — no compassion for the criminal addict. I Do have great compassion for the mentally ill and our beloved veterans who have fallen pray to addiction after what they have suffered. they deserve our compassion. I am speaking of the Criminal drug addict.

  • Well I doubt they stole the money to buy groceries.

  • Check pics/ video of yesterday’s Hillary rally. Guaranteed this perp was at the rally. Probably went broke making vulgar signs and needed cash on the way back to wherever.

  • CR reports that the ATM was not successfully stolen, and that some parked cars were unsuccessfully broken into. Also, the truck used to break in was apparently a stolen vehicle.

  • This person probably didn’t want to take the time to find a backhoe in order to do the smash and grab, like was done to the Blue Lake gas station a few months back.

  • A while back three guys tried to cut open the Ferndale ATM, and were snagged by the local constabulary… one of them tried to run away out the front door and was stopped by the thick polycarbonate (not glass) in the door… “Boing”… and right back into Deputy Dawg’s arms.

    This kind of theft is more common in larger urban areas, so far… like this YouTube from Spokane…

  • Was their even money in the Atm??
