Humboldt County Sheriffs responded to a residence on the 4300 block of Little Fairfield early Wednesday morning after receiving a report of a robbery. At about 1:45 a.m. deputies arrived at the house and were told by a man and a woman there that they had been inside when they heard their back door crash open. The couple reported that three men entered their house. Two of the suspects were holding handguns and ordered the couple to get on the floor. They both complied but the suspects struck them multiple times. The suspects began going through the couple’s belongings. The couple reported that they were ordered into a bathroom where they were tied up. They said they heard the three suspects inside the house as they freed themselves and crawled out a bathroom window. The couple ran to a neighbor’s house and called 9-1-1. The three suspects were gone when deputies arrived. The victims said the suspects took miscellaneous electronic equipment, a shotgun, 65 marijuana plants, two pounds of processed marijuana, and four pounds of recently harvested marijuana.
The suspects are described as follows:
Suspect #1: White male adult, blue eyes, possibly blonde hair. Wearing a black sweatshirt, faded blue jeans, tan boots and a black ski mask with a blue and yellow sticker in the middle of the mask.
Suspect #2: Black male adult, possible in his 20’s with a muscular build wearing all black clothing and tan boots.
Suspect #3: Black male adult, average height and weight, but was wearing a handkerchief over his face.
One of the victims, Daniel G. Jarrette, 21, had three outstanding felony warrants out of Virginia for conspiracy to sell marijuana, larceny, and money laundering. Jarrette was arrested and transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility where he was booked under California Penal Code 1551 which initiates extradition proceedings.
Anyone with information regarding the robbery should call the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at (707) 445-7251.
