The LoCO has received two reports of a law enforcement convoy gathering in and then leaving the area behind the Circle K [Gas Station] at the far north end of Eureka this morning. Reportedly the vehicles are “approximately 20 sheriffs pick-ups, black Ford Explorers…as well as the green sheriffs pick- ups (fish and game?)… .”

LoCO has a question in to the Sheriff’s Dept. We’ll be updating you throughout the day as more information becomes available.
