Press release from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office:
A Rio Dell man wanted on felony warrants was arrested this morning after attempting to shoplift from a Eureka business.
On March 6, 2018, at about 1:17 a.m., Humboldt County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a business on the 2500 block of Harris Ave. in Eureka for the report of a theft that had just occurred.
Upon arrival, deputies contacted and detained three suspects associated with the shoplifting in the business’ parking lot. One suspect, Garret Ross Wilson, 32, gave deputies a false name and identification. Upon further investigation, deputies discovered Wilson’s true identity. Wilson was also found to have two felony warrants for burglary and possession of a controlled substance for sales.
Wilson was arrested and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on his two felony warrants and an additional charge of false impersonation.
The business declined to press charges. The two other subjects were released at the scene.
