On Aug. 17, 2022, at about 7:55 p.m., Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a residence on Stamps Lane in Manila for the report of an assault.
While enroute, deputies were notified that the suspect, 39-year-old Daniel Dean Egger, had left the residence on foot. Deputies located and detained Egger in the area of Highway 255 and Stamps Lane. At the residence, deputies located a heavily damaged vehicle and an adult female victim. During their investigation, deputies learned that Egger and the victim knew each other and were involved in an argument outside the residence. At some point during this argument, Egger reportedly threatened the victim with a brick, then used the brick to vandalize the victim’s vehicle. Egger then reportedly entered the victim’s vehicle without permission and attempted to drive away, crashing the vehicle into a metal pole.
Egger was arrested and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on charges of carjacking (PC 215(a)), assault with a deadly weapon other than a firearm (PC 245(a)(1)), throwing a substance at a vehicle (VC 23110(b)), violating a court order (PC 273.6(a)) and dissuading a witness from testifying (PC 136.1(a)(1)), in addition to warrant charges of vandalism (PC 594(b)(1)) and battery against a spouse/cohabitant (PC 243(e)(1)).
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.
