HCSO, Arcata Fire and medical dispatched to 2300 block of Mckinleyville

Scanner call and sirens about an hour ago. 2300 block of Mckinleyville Avenue, suspicious circumstances/ possible drug overdose. Medical, Arcata Fire, HCSO responded.

Two sheriff cars and ambulance were headed back to their respective stations, just minutes ago. Have contacted HCSO for more information.

Here is your chance to give feedback to CDCR on the disaster that is Prop 57 and make an impact on pubic safety

From Association of Deputy District Attorneys:

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) is accepting public comments on the regulations to implement Proposition 57, which was approved by voters last November. 

CA property owners, especially in rural areas, should pay attention to Republican effort to defeat fire tax


“This is a huge victory,” Assemblyman Devon Mathis (R-Visalia) said. “Six years ago the fire tax illegally forced people in fire-prone areas to pay $80 million a year, and not one cent has gone to putting more boots on the ground.”

HCSO in Salyer interuppt alleged burglary in progress

HCSO sees a burglary in progress in Salyer. Getting a response on the weekend is always hard, especially now with no permanent PIO.

Trying to confirm if arrest occured and get more details.

When you have a BOLO for an armed and dangerous suspect, a tattoo can be very helpful

An arm tatoo cannot be disguised or altered by growing a beard or shaving facial hair.

Elijah William's arm tatoo and another photo below, (as a recent as in the last two weeks):

Copters in Arcata, law enforcement in Samoa, who or what are they looking for?

Two helicopters flying around in Arcata this morning.

Five law enforcement vehicles parked in Samoa, still there around 5 p.m. Tip had no specific location or more information.

Contacted both APD and HCSO to see if this is anything major.

When Elijah Williams is taken into custody, maybe APD could question him about his stab wound reference on April 15 2017
