  1. Last Friday at about 5:30am, still dark, I witnessed a shirtless man being handcuffed and put into a patrol car at the corner of G St and Sonoma. I heard the name Travis. How do I get info on arrests in my neighborhood? thanks for your postings, H...

    1. All arrests that result in someone being booked into jail are listed online on the Humboldt County Sheriff's website. For that location, that man may or may not have been arrested. You can try calling EPD to see if there was a report. Thank you for your comment.

  2. Doesn't your post about arrests on Church Street in Fortuna justify overwhelmingly that Fortuna needs the 0.75% sales tax increase for my police officers? This is validation beyond contest to support this tax and have everyone vote in favor Nov. 8th. God bless you all.
