The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office continues its Monday press release extravaganza with the following tale of a grower/trimmer relationship breakdown:

On 11-06-17 at about 6:24 AM four deputies and a Sergeant responded to the County Line Creek Rd area of Mad River for a reported marijuana theft in progress. It was reported the person watching the property had been hit on the head and suspects were actively stealing marijuana.

Once on scene deputies were told that a trimmer was upset about not getting paid and arrived on the property with several subjects, one who was armed with a baseball bat. An unknown amount of marijuana was stolen and the suspects left the scene. The reporting party declined to cooperate with the investigation.

These type of incidents are becoming more common place and are straining our limited resources.
