Written by 

    According to a press release from the Humboldt County sheriff's Office, dated Nov. 19, 2012:

On 11-17-2012, at approximately 5:00 p.m. the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a citizen stating there was a bank owned property located at 340 Fox Hill Lane, Fortuna. The citizen told the Sheriff’s Dispatcher there are currently people wandering around on the property that did not seem to belong there and now a chain was strung up across the driveway.

When deputies arrived at the residence with the Fortuna Police Department, no one was around. However, there appeared to be an indoor marijuana grow in the residence. Deputies attempted contact with a bank representative, however were unable to locate anyone. Deputies sought and obtained a Humboldt County Superior Court search warrant for the residence and located approximately 300 pounds of processed marijuana hanging and drying in the garage and in a shed in the back yard. Deputies determined the suspect(s) had forced entry into the locked building via a back door and then re-secured it. Deputies are currently following up leads into potential suspects in this investigation.
Anyone with information for the Sheriffs Office regarding this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Sheriffs Office at 707-445-7251 or the Sheriffs Office Crime Tip line at 707-268-2539.
