Yesterday, a large number of law enforcement went to a property on the Samuel’s Loop Road in the Salmon Creek watershed. The property had in the past been in the Humboldt County cannabis permit process but has also been the subject of multiple complaints from neighbors. The property was reported to have been purchased last year by a new owner.

According to an email received from Samantha Karges spokesperson for the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office yesterday afternoon, “Our Special Services deputies are serving a search warrant in the Miranda area.” She wasn’t able to provide more details at the time. The Sheriff’s website
however says that Special Services includes “the Drug Task Force (DTF) and the Marijuana Enforcement Team (MET).
Nine law enforcement vehicles including one pulling an enclosed trailer were reported to have left the area late yesterday by two different witnesses. At this point, we don’t have information on the reasons law enforcement visited the property.
