In Humboldt County, Sheriff deputies in the Garberville area observed a Uhaul box truck traveling at a high rate of speed.
Deputies conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle in the area of Alderpoint Road and Wallan Road. After stopping the truck, two occupants fled from the vehicle into nearby vegetation. Furthermore, Deputies searched for the individuals but were unable to locate them due to darkness and terrain. Due to the potential for additional individuals inside the storage portion of the truck, the police conducted a search of the vehicle. During the search, over 3,683 pounds of cannabis was found and the cannabis did not contain California Cannabis Track and Trace information. The illegally transported cannabis was seized for destruction by The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Marijuana Enforcement Team. The case is still under investigation.
