Dufay eventually provided her true identity to the deputies. It was determined that Dufay is a wanted parolee at large from Curry County Oregon with full extradition.
Dufay was placed under arrest for her parole warrant. Dufay was searched and found to be in possession of suspected concentrated cannabis.
Dufay was transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility where she was booked for falsely identifying herself to law enforcement, possession of suspected concentrated cannabis, and the parole warrant.
