Our deputies sometimes have the chance to work with other states in locating wanted felons. On Friday, deputies received a tip from the Texas Attorney General's Office that wanted sex offender Lance Cochran was in the Garberville area. Cochran had been on the run from Texas authorities for about a month. Our deputies were able to locate Cochran leaving the Lone Pine Motel in Garberville. He is currently in the Humboldt County Correctional Facility awaiting extradition back to Texas on charges of indecency with a child. Great work to the deputies who promptly began investigating and were able to locate Cochran quickly! And of course, thank you to the community's help for being cooperative during the investigation process. Your cooperation helps us solve crimes and arrest offenders! #cleanuphumboldt #wanted #deputysheriff #southernhumboldt

Do you recognize these people? These are the two suspects captured on surveillance footage believed to have burglarized a commercial storage facility in McKinleyville yesterday. If you recognize either of the two, give us a call at (707) 445-7251 or call the Sheriff’s Office Crime Tip line at (707) 268-2539.

While on patrol early this morning in McKinleyville, one of our deputies observed a hole in the fence of a commercial storage facility on Murray Rd. with a lot of suspected stolen items piled outside the fence. While investigating, deputies spotted two suspects running away from the facility. They also observed several storage units with locks cut, and several others that had been opened and rummaged through. Thanks to our deputies the burglary was cut short. It is unknown if any personal property was stolen, other than that recovered near the fence. #Greatwork #BurglaryFoiled A BIG thanks to YOU for enabling around the clock service with #MeasureZ!
