Hum­boldt Hill

The fol­low­ing was com­piled from a Hum­boldt County Sher­iff’s Of­fice news re­lease:

CHILD ABUSE: On Mon­day, the Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tions Divi­sion served a search war­rant at a home in the 2300 block of Park­wood Boule­vard as a re­sult of a child abuse in­ves­ti­ga­tion, While serv­ing the war­rant, deputies ar­rested Christophe­r

Mark Best, 31, and Gaylia Jean Wilson, 58.

Best was booked into the Hum­boldt County jail on sus­pi­cion of sodomy with a child, lewd or las­civ­i­ous acts with a child, re­cur­ring sex­ual con­duct and un­law­ful in­ter­course with a mi­nor. His bail is set at $195,000.

Wilson was booked into the jail on sus­pi­cion of child en­dan­ger­ment. Her bail is set at $55,000.

The sher­iff’s of­fice asks any­one with in­for­ma­tion about this case or re­lated crim­i­nal ac­tiv­ity to call the of­fice at 707-445-7251 or its crime tip line at 707-268-2539.


The fol­low­ing was com­piled from a Cal­i­for­nia High­way Pa­trol news re­lease:

PEDES­TRIAN STRUCK: Early Tues­day morn­ing around 1:21 a.m., of­fi­cers re­sponded to a re­port of a pedes­trian struck by a ve­hi­cle on south­bound U.S. High­way 101 at the Cal­i­for­nia Red­wood Com­pany cross­ing just north of Harper Mo­tors. When of­fi­cers ar­rived, emer­gency med­i­cal per­son­nel found Amanda Dy­ball, 38, of For­tuna, suf­fer­ing from ma­jor in­juries as a re­sult of the in­ci­dent. Dy­ball was taken to St. Joseph Hos­pi­tal for treat­ment.

Of­fi­cers in­ter­viewed the driver of the ve­hi­cle, iden­ti­fied as Jorge Martinez, 32, of Santa Rosa, and his pas­sen­ger, Paula Bana, 36, also from Santa Rosa. A pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion sug­gested Dy­ball walked across High­way 101 di­rectly into the path of Martinez. Be­cause it was dark and rain­ing lightly at the time, it in­creased the dan­ger of cross­ing the high­way.

The Hum­boldt area CHP of­fice in con­tin­u­ing to in­ves­ti­gate the crash and asks any­one with in­for­ma­tion to call the of­fice at 707822-5981 or email to hum­boldt_ area.hum­

Hum­boldt County

The fol­low­ing was com­piled from a Hum­boldt County Sher­iff’s Of­fice news re­lease:

CANNABIS EN­FORCE­MENT: The Mar­i­juana En­force­ment team ended its 2019 erad­i­ca­tion and sup­pres­sion pro­gram for the 2018-19 grant cy­cle.

Dur­ing the past year of en­force­ment ef­forts sup­ported by a $220,000 grant, the sher­iff’s

of­fice con­ducted 86 op­er­a­tions at cul­ti­va­tion and pro­cess­ing sites that lacked proper per­mits. As part of those ef­forts, 206,966 plants were erad­i­cated; 39,788 pounds of pro­cessed cannabis was de­stroyed; $94,718 was seized in cash; 81 firearms were seized and 16 ar­rests were made. There were also nu­mer­ous environmen­tal vi­o­la­tions found.

The Hum­boldt County Sher­iff’s Of­fice has re­ceived funding through the pro­gram for the past 20 years. It covers deputy over­time costs, equip­ment costs, air­plane rental costs and travel and training costs.

While the grant cy­cle ended, the team will con­tinue to con­duct cannabis en­force­ment ef­forts with a fo­cus on in­door cul­ti­va­tion op­er­a­tions.

The sher­iff’s of­fice would like the pub­lic to re­port il­licit cannabis op­er­a­tions by call­ing the sher­iff’s of­fice crime tip line at 707-268-2539.
