On Nov. 14, 2022, at about 6:46 p.m., Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a residence on the 100 block of Hansen Drive near Fortuna for the report of an unwanted person attempting to gain entry into a residence.
Deputies arrived at the residence and located 38-year-old Kristopher Sean Mobley Jr. nearby a broken window of the residence. When contacted, Mobley began acting erratically toward deputies and physically resisted them upon detainment. After a brief struggle, Mobley was taken into custody without injury.
During their investigation, deputies learned that Mobley and the resident were acquaintances. The resident told deputies that Mobley had arrived at the home that evening uninvited and the resident asked him to leave. Mobley refused to leave, began banging on the resident’s exterior door and then broke a window.
Mobley was arrested and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on charges of felony vandalism (PC 594(b)(1)) and resisting a peace officer (PC 148(a)(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.
