  • Book and release, 60,000 isn’t nothing.

  • I’m so sick of thieves! S.S.S all day!!!!

    • It’s the California circle Shawn. Jobless because your sick. Do drugs to cure your sickness. Steal sh!t to feed your drug habit. Go unpunished when finally caught. Rinse and repeat……

      • Hopefully you never utilize cannabis as a medicine and simply succumb to your illness. The less closed minded anachronistic the better.

  • “Come wit me little one,,I’ll show you how to fast track to fuckin up early in life”

  • Any chance this is yet another McCovey from the Hoopa clan? Man that name keeps popping up with this kind of stuff!

  • Ah the mccoveys at it again.

    • There are good people in that family too. Big family. That’s why I asked my question. Not to smear the name but to connect dots…I don’t know them. But since the name keeps popping up in criminal stories… perhaps they have a line or two of cousins with serious issues. There are very honorable people in Hoopa with that same name….we don’t choose our family and I would never expect anybody to abandon their own blood.

  • I wonder if they smoked pesticide contaminated marijuana that had it’s results falsified from a testing lab like this one which was shut down?
    Dope growers and their organic weed soaked in dangerous pesticides continue to injure people as growers place money above safety and ethics.

  • Maybe if the moderators of this site didn’t allow chicken shit pussy ass bitches to use pseudonyms we’d have less of the ridiculous comments. I appreciate the reporting on this site but this is the second time I’ve been compelled to respond because it concerned my family.
    No matter what the situation talking shit about a a large family (that is also in the paper for winning national awards and recognition) in a small community is not okay. If you have an opinion have the guts to say it with your name, why throw out a blanket comment about a family that has 2,000+ people in it and not say who you are? If you don’t want to be called on your shit shut the fuck up.
