McKinleyville Man Calls Sheriff’s Office to Report Being Robbed at Gunpoint of 10 Pounds of Processed Weed
From the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office:
On Sunday, 08/27, at about 9:30 PM, Humboldt County Sheriff Office deputies responded to an apartment complex in McKinleyville regarding the report of a robbery.
When the deputies arrived at the incident location, the victim told the deputies he had been robbed at gunpoint of 10 pounds of processed marijuana.
The victim identified the suspects as two black male adults. After the robbery, the suspects left the area, on foot, in an unknown direction of travel.
The victim met the suspects at a bar in Arcata and arranged to sell them the 10 pounds of marijuana. Unfortunately, the suspects had a different plan of exchange.
Fortunately, the victim was not injured during the robbery. A “be on the lookout” bulletin was sent to all neighboring law enforcement agencies, but the suspects are still outstanding.
