On 06-15-2014, at approximately 8:30 p.m., the Humboldt County Sheriff’s was notified of a possible burglary in a commercial building at the End of Depot Road, Fields Landing. Deputies responded and were able to determine the building had been forcibly entered, but were unable to determine what if anything was stolen. The suspect(s) had entered through a window after cutting away metal bars. The Sheriff’s Office learned the building was owned by Humboldt Bay Harbor District, but the contents inside belonged to the Sea Scouts, who are affiliated with the Boy Scouts. A representative of the Sea Scouts was notified what had occurred and agreed to secure the building that evening and determine what was missing.
On 06-16-2014, at approximately 9:00 a.m. the representative contacted the Sheriff’s Office and reported a green, two person, Canoe, CF9437HM , an orange, two person, Kayak with sit on top benches, two black Pelican brand paddles, a 15 Horse Power Motor and a large green inflatable raft were stolen. The representative said the items were last in the building approximately two weeks ago. It appeared the items were removed by a roll up door after the suspects gained entry though the window.
The total estimated loss is estimated to be at least $1,500.00.
