On 11/23/10, at about 7:00 AM, Eureka Police Department officers responded to a business in the 3100 bock of F Street after a passerby reported the business’ front window was shattered. Upon arriving and meeting with the owner, officers discovered an unknown suspect had forced entry into the business via the window sometime overnight. The suspect took only the victim’s “prized Roosevelt Elk antlers,” which had been in the front room.
According to the victim, the antlers had recently been measured and rated, and they were going to be listed in the Boone and Crockett Club’s records book. The trophy antlers had an estimated value of $10,000.00.
Anyone with knowledge of the antler’s whereabouts and/or the suspect’s identity is asked to call the Eureka Police Department at (707) 441-4060 or 441-4044. (Investigating officer, Justin Winkle, reference case #3C10-9607).
Members of the media wishing to speak with the victim, Michael Grundman, may do so with his permission by calling (707) 496-2679.
