One of SoHum’s Most Wanted Taken into Custody for Felony Narcotic Warrants
This is a press release from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. The information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty:
On 06-27-2017, at approximately 2:00 p.m., Sheriff’s Deputies received an anonymous tip that wanted fugitive, Shaun Maurice Stringfellow, was seen walking in the 3200 block of Redwood Drive, Redway. Stringfellow was previously featured on the Sheriff’s Office “Southern Humboldt’s Most Wanted” poster.
Within minutes, Sheriff’s Deputies located Stringfellow and took him into custody for his felony narcotic warrants. Stringfellow was subsequently transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility where he is being held without bail.
Since the distribution of the Southern Humboldt’s Most Wanted poster in October 2015, the Sheriff’s Office has made dozens of arrests; many of them as the direct result of community-based tips. The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the public for their continued vigilance and determination when calling to report the sightings of wanted fugitives. This has undoubtedly resulted in safer Southern Humboldt communities.
