HCSO Log: Patrolling Humboldt’s dark underbelly

Thursday, September 28 3:06 p.m. A deputy received information about a female allegedly involved in prostitution and selling drugs. Later in the day, the deputy came across a black Cadillac Escalade associated with the woman parked east of Arcata near Hatchery Road. A male and female were standing near the Caddy. Before the deputy could even turn around, they fled on foot. A search of the vehicle revealed a plastic baggy full of meth and a wallet with a driver’s license belonging to Aronis Harter, who is also the registered owner of the car. The Caddy’s registration expired in April but it had tags showing the registration was good through December. A warrant has been issued for Harter’s arrest.

• Friday, September 29 6:07 a.m. A couple came all the way from Wales to visit our little slice of paradise. They parked their rental car at Samoa Beach, marched through the dunes and marveled at the natural beauty.

9:07 a.m. Kayla Camilla was driving a vehicle with broken taillights on Scenic Drive near Trinidad when she got pulled over by a deputy.

Unfortunate things were found by the deputy. Camilla was arrested on suspicion of giving false information to a police officer and for violating probation. Her passenger, Anthony Smith, was arrested on suspicion of possession of meth, possession of heroin, possession of syringes, possession of counterfeit currency and possession of a baton. They were booked into the county jail.

The deputy discovered that Jones was on probation with a search clause and had a warrant. Graham also had a warrant. A search revealed syringes, meth and Xanax. Jones was arrested on suspicion of being drunk in public, possession of Xanax without a prescription, possession of meth and syringes, and for a warrant.
