On 07-14-17 Deputies responded to the California Redwood Coast-Humboldt County Airport in McKinleyville for a report of an airline passenger attempting to board a commercial flight with a large amount of marijuana. Once on scene deputies contacted Michael Mogensen (36 years old) of Arcata. Prior to deputies’ arrival, TSA had located 12 one pound bags of processed marijuana in Mogensen's checked baggage. The marijuana was seized as evidence and Mogensen was issued a citation for transportation and possession of marijuana. Mogensen was then allowed to board the flight. This investigation will be forwarded to the DEA and the FBI for possible prosecution.
