From the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office:
On 09-18-2012, approximately 6:19 p.m. the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call from a citizen in the 2000 block of Terra Vista Place, McKinleyville. The citizen told the dispatcher she thought someone had broken into her residence and was still inside the residence. When deputies arrived on scene at 6:23 p.m. they met with the victim who told the deputies she had been away from her residence. When she arrived home and entered inside she heard what she thought was a noise upstairs. As she walked into the kitchen, she saw a window and door was opened. It appeared the suspects had entered through a window. She immediately called 911 and exited the home while waiting for the deputies to arrive.
After deputies arrived and spoke with the victim they entered the residence after announcing their presence. After entering the residence deputies found a male suspect in the master bedroom wearing a backpack and exiting onto the back deck. Deputies immediately took the suspect into custody. The suspect was identified as Cole Christopher Foos, 27 years old, from Eureka. When the deputies took him into custody they located stolen property from the home in his possession, along with ammunition. No gun was found on Foos.
Deputies also located a 1996 Red Toyota pickup truck with Oregon plates parked and concealed near the residence. An adult female, identified as Lindsey Karen Fisher, 27 years old from McKinleyville, was in the pickup truck driver seat. Deputies knew Fisher from previous contacts and that she was Foos’ roommate and friend. Deputies spoke with Fisher who told them she was there with Foos. A warrant check revealed that Fisher had two outstanding warrants for her arrest, one for vandalism, another for possession of stolen property, possession of a controlled substance and possession of an illicit drug. Fisher was arrested on the warrants. Fisher was also arrested for burglary, conspiracy to commit a crime, possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, possession of prescription drugs without a prescription and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility where she was booked and her bail was set at $135,000.00.
