–A Bike and a Life of Crime–

On Tuesday, December 11, at approximately 6:00 in the morning, the Sheriff’s Office received a call that a citizen was in foot pursuit of a burglary suspect on Ashdown Avenue in McKinleyville.

When deputies arrived they met with a citizen who resides in the 600 block of Montana Road.  The citizen told the deputies he was in his garage when he heard his car alarm sound.  He immediately exited his garage and saw the passenger side of his vehicle– which was parked in his driveway– had been smashed.  There was a male standing near his car with a pit bull-mix dog.

The man immediately started telling the victim he was “Sorry,” as he was backing away from the citizen and his vehicle.

The citizen tried to grab the male suspect to detain him for law enforcement.  After a brief struggle, the suspect pulled away and rode away on a bicycle with the victim chasing after him.

The suspect began yelling at his dog to “Attack!” the citizen, so the citizen discontinued his pursuit.  The citizen told the responding deputies the damage to his vehicle was approximately $450.00 and there was five dollars in cash missing from the center console.  Deputies checked the area for the suspect and could not find him.

Yesterday, December 12, at approximately 11:00 p.m., the citizen called the Sheriff’s Office and told the investigating deputy he saw the suspect again with the dog.  The citizen followed the suspect to a residence in the 1300 Block of Anderson Road in McKinleyville.

Deputies responded to the home on Anderson Road and located Rob O’Neil Harvey, 28 years old, from McKinleyville.  The citizen identified Harvey as the one he saw and chased.

Harvey was arrested for burglary and violation of probation.  Harvey was on probation for possession of burglary tools.

He was booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility and his bail was set at $50,000, the HCSO reported.

A nation governed by a culture of impunity ... a culture in which […]
