Dazey's burglary suspect Levi McDonald pleads guilty; agrees to drug treatment and probation

Levi McDonald plead guilty today with an offer of probation instead of additional jail time.

He had served 42 days in jail and got 42 days in good time credit for a total of 84 days jail time.

Upon release, which is today, McDonald is ordered to contact probation and participate in drug treatment.

McDonald also agreed to the $3,000 + amount of restitution requested by Dazey's.

After sentencing him, Judge Marilyn Miles wished him luck and urged him to deal with his drug issues that seem to be the root cause of his incarceration. McDonald thanked Judge Miles for this chance.

HCSO Press Release:

On 10/10/2016 at 9:45 a.m., Humboldt County Sheriff's Office Deputies responded to Dazey's Supply, 3082 Redwood Drive, Redway, to investigate the report of a commercial burglary.
Upon arrival, Deputies spoke to a store employee who reported that someone had burglarized the store's warehouse sometime during the night. There was evidence of forced entry into the warehouse and several thousand dollars worth of merchandise was stolen. Upon reviewing the store's surveillance cameras, Deputies recognized the suspect and positively identified him as Levi Andrew McDonald (age 30).
On 10/12/2016 at 2:59 p.m., a Humboldt County Sheriff's Office Sergeant was patrolling in the 500 block of Empire Avenue, Redway. The Sergeant observed McDonald attempting to flee through the Melody Trailer Park, 3220 Redwood Drive. After a brief foot pursuit, the Sergeant was able to take McDonald into custody.
McDonald was subsequently transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility where he was booked for burglary and vandalism.
Deputies are continuing to follow up on investigative leads for this case. At least one other suspect has been identified as a person of interest in assisting McDonald during the commission of the burglary. It is also believed that a third suspect knowingly accepted the stolen merchandise after the burglary was committed. Warrant requests for their arrest(s) will be forwarded to the District Attorney's Office. The identities of these suspects will be withheld until warrants have been issued.
