Sheriff’s Deputy Discovers Pot-Free Arcata Area House

[Press release from undisclosed Herald sources.] At 5:30 pm on August 24th, Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies located a lost dog in the vicinity of Route 299.  Based on information found on the dog’s collar, deputies transported the dog to a house on the 3000 block of West Summit Road.  An approximately 35 year old Caucasian male responded to the officer’s knock, and confirmed that he was the dog’s owner.

No marijuana, crack, or heroin was observed on the premises.

    Obviously an inadequate investigation.

    I laughed like hell at the post and Julie’s comment.
    Thanks to all involved.

    5:30pm or 24th of August , one of these numbers is incorrect

    It’s the media, “by the numbers.” I wouldn’t trust it all that much.

    Did they check the basement and the detached garage?

    Fact checker,

    The PR didn’t say. It was also notably silent about meth.

    If the pic is “the dog”, the white male Caucasian is gay!

    Obviously a very sophisticated grow.

    “If the pic is “the dog”, the white male Caucasian is gay!”

    And obviously has a sophisticated sense of “cute.”

    Obviously a very sophisticated grow.

    Nah. If it were that sophisticated, they never would have offered a reason for the deputy to knock on their door. I doubt we ever hear about the sophisticated grows in police reports.

    I can’t believe you people who have judged this man to be innocent. He is going to have to live with this the rest of his life. At least there is no identifying picture like those crime-voyeurs at Lost Coast…

    It’s our policy at the Herald to never identify the innocent. No person is shown in an identifiable manner in the photograph we selected. The dog is guilty of running away, and is therefore acceptable to photograph (or to steal from google). We do not, however, sit in judgment upon the dog, other than to note its disgusting cuteness, and we have removed all references to the dog from Herald databases.

    What dog?

    For that dog to run free, and naked I might add, there had to be an accomplice. Turn that dog on its back and scratch its belly til it fesses to who helped him get out. Was it an inside job? Mitch, there are still many questions to be asked.

    there had to be an accomplice.

    -the other guy, not the prodigal dog but the one seen behind him on the couch, looks suspicious. My guess is that he’s turning his head to hide an incriminating neck tattoo.

    Have to agree, that dog on the couch is hiding something…. and the empty bottle on the floor?

  16. suzy blah blah
    August 24, 2012 at 9:38 pm

    -right, the bottle will not look good if the case gets to a jury. And isn’t that a hippie grow-light ballast on the table? It could be that the dogs are K9s trained by the grower to alert on his vehicle to show him if he used enough turkey bags before he embarks on a business trip. That would explain why the crazed thing was running up and down 299 sniffing at cars.

    Breaking news: “Bulgarian dope dogs in drag busted in Arcata! International canine ringleaders Mitzi and Ralph apprehended after Mitzi’s drunken barking spree on Highway 299. Investigation ongoing, but pawprints have placed this hairy pair of dope thuggees at numerous growsites around the county. Local law enforcement seizes milkbones, couch and cheesy curtains under asset forfeiture laws. DA declines to comment, stating ongoing investigation.”
    Boy this will put our town on the map!

    Pot pushing pederast puppy pulls police ‘pon parents. Pulitzer promise!

  21. August 25, 2012 at 12:18 pm

    Remember the days before the war on drugs and the cops were not feared and this kind of activity was their norm? I bet the old cops miss those days too.

  22. August 25, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    Clearly these are the dog days of August…!

  23. August 28, 2012 at 2:40 pm

    This is how I know you are lying Heraldo. A headline saying something in Humboldt is pot free. Pffft. Never

    Cops are not feared by the great majority of us who aren’t breaking laws Peter.

    Straighten up your act and you will have no reason for fear either.

    Cops are not feared by those who are ready to submit to authority, legitimate or otherwise. Submit to all authority, legitimate or otherwise, and you will have nothing to fear from cops.

    U.S. “authority” has reinvented child labor for its industries who hid $21 Trillion in income overseas, tanking this nation’s infrastructure, education and social services. They gamed the mortgage system, tanking the world economy, then they looted the U.S. Treasury after they were “caught”. After all, industry’s lobbyists wrote the laws.

    It’s only those who author the laws that have the least to fear from the enforcers.
