  • The Punisher?

  • Boots and hats confiscated as evidence?

  • That’s to bad. He comes from a good family!

  • Honeydew Bridge C.H.U.M.P.

    Marijuana Caliphate for sure, prolly that weed only will last a day, but still weed off the streets is less weed.

    For such a drug of peace there sure seem to be lots of illegal weapons that go hand in hand with weed.

    Wonder what is in that box with the green triangle on it? Possibly a Marijuana Caliphate Manifesto that is handed out at grade schools?

  • This guys a genius. Hauling that kind of hardware in a vehicle with no registration and a headlight out. That screams pull me over to law enforcement. Also, where’s the rest of the evidence? The rifle ammo is 5.56. That’s typical for AR style rifles. The AK typically fires 7.62X39. And who shoots Hornady superformance out of a semi auto?

  • Looks like pretty standard equipment for driving around here, where’s the meth?

  • This is his 4th time pulled over with a loaded rifle, he has been arrested each time.Hes a felon and has been arrested previously for home invasion, burglary, weapons, drugs, etc. Yet he is still on the streets… Keeps finding new rifles….

  • Another familiar criminal face. Find him and keep him this time.

  • Cannabis and lions tigers and guns oh my….. like everybody living in Rural Humboldt doesn’t have bags of pot, ammo, pistols and rifles…..
    Stupid lame laws anyways….. we live in the country, rural america….. Cannabis shouldnt be the deal breaker for owning firearms, I would way ratger prefer that drinkers and alcoholics were denied access to firearms…. alcohol makes people do some pretty stupid stuff….. Hope he gets away!

  • Seems pretty simple to me. Catch this guy and lock him up for 20 years.

  • I agree with mr. Guest that’s what you need to drive through Eureka safely.just saying .

  • a suppressed 9mm, i wonder if it’s selective fire? that heater will bring decades of federal time your way.

  • Timothy McVeigh's ghost

    Can anyone identify the assault rifle in the picture?

    • it’s the item to the south of the assault boots and north of the assault cellphone. all of which are lying on the assault table. i can assault you with just about anything, which is why many feel “assault” weapon is a nebulous term.

    • One is a typical AK-47 with the folding stock removed, the other one is a suppressed MP5.

    • RetDEA TaskForceAgt

      It is an MP5 replica that is chambered in .22 Long-Rifle, it is not a Suppressed MP5 H&K, but a .22 clone

  • >”a suppressed 9mm, i wonder if it’s selective fire? that heater will bring decades of federal time your way.”

    They caught him with full-auto rifles last November… and drugs, and an active warrant.
    Why was he ‘out’?

    (Quote from Times Standard)

    > “Crews had an active warrant and was found hiding inside the residence. While taking Crews into custody deputies saw drug paraphernalia, several AR-15 type rifles, and high capacity magazines. A search warrant was obtained for the residence and the it was later determined one of the rifles had been converted to fully automatic. “

  • What a genius, like someone said above driving around and in possesion of illegal firearms with no registration and no headlight. I bet you this guy is too sissy to even use any of that anyways. Just for intimidating people and robberies.

  • Rocket scientist!

  • Looks like he also has a key fob for a Dodge. Wonder what’s in that vehicle?

  • roundhouse to your face

    all that and a single pound? wow, wonder whats going on in his head? WTF!

  • Anyone know what the tool in the lower left-hand corner is?
