On March 18, 2022, at about 6:52 p.m., Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a residence on the 1100 block of Peeples Lane in McKinleyville for the report of a home invasion armed robbery.
Deputies arrived at the residence and located multiple victims, including two young children. No one was physically injured during the incident. During their investigation, deputies learned that four male suspects arrived at the residence brandishing firearms. The suspects reportedly bound the adult victims and stole cannabis, jewelry, electronics and cash from the victims. The suspects then reportedly fled the area.
The suspects are described as follows:
- A black male adult, age 20-30’s, possibly known as “James,” approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall, 180 pounds, with short black dreadlocks. He was last seen wearing a turquoise jacket, blue sweatpants with a white stripe down the leg, socks and sandals.
- A black male adult, age 20-30’s, possibly known as “Mike,” approximately 5 feet 6 inches tall, 200 pounds, with long black dreadlocks. He was last seen wearing a black zip-up sweatshirt, a black shirt with red lettering, black sweatpants, and black and orange sandals.
- The other two suspects are only described as black male adults, age 20-30’s.
A vehicle possibly associated with the suspects is described as a 2013 black Mazda SUV, unknown license plate, last seen fleeing east toward Willow Creek.
