According to residents of Shelter Cove in Southern Humboldt, federal law enforcement agents are at a piece of property on the corner of Redwood Road and Shelter Cove Road. “Multiple vehicles and officers at both houses,” according to one reader. He said, “There are two houses next door to each other…both have uniform officers taking black trash bags out.”

Reportedly the officers stayed overnight at an inn there and then went to this property today. The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed they are not involved.

We have not been able to confirm which federal agency is in charge. We are currently reaching out to the Bureau of Land Management in an attempt to learn more.

UPDATE 11:17 a.m.: The BLM said this is not their officers.

Update 1:20 p.m.: Lt. Ken Swithenbank of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office spoke with the Pittsburg branch of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and they have confirmed that they have an operation in the area.
