On April 15, 2023, at about 11:27 p.m., Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the Samoa area for the report of an armed robbery.
Deputies contacted a 45-male-victim and learned that the robbery reportedly occurred near the intersection of New Navy Base Road and Cookhouse Road. The victim told deputies that he was walking along the roadway when he was approached by an unknown dark-colored truck with two male occupants. The men reportedly brandished firearms at the victim, demanded he drop his belongings and threatened to kill him. The men then took the victim’s belongings and fled. The victim did not sustain physical injuries during this incident.
The suspects remain outstanding at this time. They are described as follows:
- Suspect One: White male adult, approximately 30-years-old, medium build and short hair. He was last seen wearing a blue-colored jacket and dark pants.
- Suspect Two: White male adult, thin build, with facial hair and possibly long, “slicked back” hair. He was last seen wearing a green jacket.
This case is still under investigation. Anyone with information about this case, the suspects 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, reference case number 202301773.
