Car purchase at Benbow campground turns into alleged robbery and car theft

On Thursday, April 21, 2016 at 12:30 a.m., Humboldt County Deputy Sheriffs responded to the Benbow KOA Campground for a report of an armed robbery. Deputies arrived on scene and spoke with the 32 year old female victim. The victim stated she met “Brian,” (suspect #1), because he stated he wanted to purchase the car she was selling. Brian left, claiming to return with cash for the vehicle, and returned with two other suspects.
