--PREVIOUS 1/4/2021 ---

On Dec. 30, 2020, at about 11:30 a.m., Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to an elementary school on the 4000 block of Fieldbrook Road in Fieldbrook for the report of a burglary.

According to an employee of the school, two unknown suspects forced entry into a garage at the school during the night of December 29, stealing a van, tools and other items.

On Jan. 1, 2021, Sheriff’s deputies received information connecting 35-year-old Troy Curtis McCluskey to the burglary. Upon further investigation, deputies learned that McCluskey had five outstanding warrants for his arrest. At about 9 p.m. that evening, deputies on patrol in the area of G and 1st Streets in Blue Lake located a vehicle being driven by McCluskey and in violation of a vehicle code. Deputies conducted a traffic stop on McCluskey and took him into custody on his warrants without incident. During a search of McCluskey’s vehicle, deputies recovered multiple items reported stolen from the school.

McCluskey was booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on fresh charges of possession of stolen property (PC 496(a)), in addition to his warrants for burglary (PC 459/461(b)), possession of stolen property (PC 496(a)), felon in possession of a firearm (PC 29800(a)(1)), possession of a controlled substance (HS 11377(a)), driving with a suspended license (VC 14601.1(a)), violation of probation (PC 1203.2(a)(2)) and hit and run (VC 20002(a)(1)).

The stolen vehicle remains outstanding at this time and is described as a gray 2004 Chevrolet AstroVan with a California Exempt License plate number 1187988.

Additionally, the second suspect remains outstanding and has not been identified at this time.

This case is still under investigation. 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.
