On April 7, 2020, at about 7 p.m., an off-duty Eureka Police Department officer contacted the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office to report seeing a known stolen vehicle parked on the 1400 block of School Avenue in McKinleyville.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to School Avenue and located the vehicle parked and occupied by a male subject, later identified as 27-year-old Little Eagle Moon. When deputies attempted to contact Moon, he fled in the vehicle, leading deputies on a brief pursuit before colliding with another vehicle on Central Avenue. The driver of the second vehicle was not injured in the collision.

Moon then fled on foot from the vehicle. Deputies pursued Moon on foot, taking him into custody a short time later.

During a search of the stolen vehicle, deputies located a loaded firearm, ammunition and a police scanner.

Moon was transported to a local hospital for medical evaluation and treatment. He was then booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on multiple felony warrants for charges of felon in possession of a firearm (PC 29800(a)(1)) and PRCS Revocation (PC 3455(a)), in addition to fresh charges of vehicle theft (VC 10852(a)), evading a peace officer (VC 2800.2), possession of a stolen vehicle (PC 496d(a)), felon in possession of a firearm (PC 29800(a)(1)), sale of ammunition to a minor (PC 30300(a)(1)), carrying a loaded firearm in a public place (PC 25850(a)), resisting arrest (PC 148(a)(1)), intercepting a police radio (PC 636.5), revocation of probation (PC 1203.2(a)), driving on a suspended license (VC 14601.1(a)), false evidence of registration (VC 4463), possession of marijuana by a driver (VC 23222(b)) and failure to stop at a stop sign (VC 22450(a)).

Anyone with information about 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.
