EOD Investigation on Humboldt Hill

An EOD Robot investigates a suspicious object with a sheriff patrol car in the background

On Feb. 14, 2020, at about 9:30 a.m., a citizen contacted the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Emergency Communications Center to report a suspicious object discovered on the side of the road in the area of the 7000 block of Humboldt Hill Road, Eureka.

The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Team was dispatched to investigate. The Humboldt Bay Fire Department responded to assist in temporarily closing Humboldt Hill Road between Skyline Drive and Austin Street. During this time, local residents were advised to stay indoors while deputies investigated.

Utilizing an EOD robot, deputies determined the suspicious object consisted of modified fireworks. Deputies rendered the object safe and collected it for further investigation. Humboldt Hill Road was re-opened to traffic shortly after.

There is no perceived threat to the public at this time.

Anyone with information regarding this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at 707-445-7251 or the Sheriff’s Office Crime Tip line at 707-268-2539.

The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind the public that if you see something suspicious or out of place in your neighborhood, do not touch or move it, but contact your local law enforcement.
