Subject: Attempted Murder Suspects Arrested
Contact: Brenda Gainey
Case No#: 200308180
Released By: Brenda Gainey

Location: Garberville

Humboldt County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested two Garberville men last night wanted in connection with an attempted murder case from Mendocino County. Yesterday afternoon the Mendocino Sheriff’s Office received a report of a shooting in Willits. Detectives from Mendocino learned that the victim, Jarron Jackson, 38 of Antioch, had been shot once in the arm during a robbery at a residence in Willits. Mendocino County Sheriff’s Detectives learned the identities of the two suspects and issued a “Be On the Loookout” bulletin to Northern California police agencies. The bulletin also indicated that the two suspects were residents of Garberville.

Late yesterday evening Humboldt County Sheriff’s Deputies and officers from the California Highway Patrol went to the suspects’ residence on the 1400 block of Redwood Dr. in Garberville. Arrested at the house were Charles Magpie, 26, and Rudolph King, 28. Both men were taken into custody without incident.

While waiting for Mendocino County Officials to arrive at the scene, Humboldt County Deputies received consent to search the house from one of the residents. Deputies found a sophisticated indoor commercial marijuana grow. Members of the Sheriff’s Drug Enforcement Unit were called and found the following:

· Twenty-eight pounds of processed marijuana; estimated street value of $100,000.
· One thousand growing marijuana plants ranging in size from six inches to two feet; estimated street value of $875,000.
· Two shotguns
· Approximately $16,000 in cash

Also arrested at the home for cultivation of marijuana, and possession of marijuana for sale were Sierra Rose Greene-Magpie, 30, and Mary Elizabeth Magpie-King, 22, both of Garberville. Both women, who had children at the scene, were released and given court dates.

The male suspects (Magpie and King) were both transported to the Mendocino County Jail. They both face charges of robbery and attempted murder with a bail of $500,000 each. Both men will likely face drug charges in Humboldt after their cases in Mendocino County are adjudicated.
