Here’s the background and pictures of what happened yesterday:

guns5On February 12 at 9:00 a.m., Humboldt County Sheriff’s Deputies and California Highway Patrol Officers returned to 500 Flint Rock Road in Garberville.

Deputies obtained a Humboldt County Superior Court search warrant for the residence and property after receiving new information from citizens about possible additional stolen property in the residence and on the property.

When the deputies arrived they located Deanna McDonald, 33-years-old and her two small children at the residence.  Deputies searched McDonald’s vehicle parked at the residence and
found a loaded .45 caliber semi-automatic
handgun.  McDonald was issued a notice to appear

person and released at the scene to care for her two
small children, one which was an infant.

Deputies also located a stolen new UTV Kubota Tractor on the property, along with a stolen concrete cutter, air compressor and what is believed to be numerous stolen chainsaws.  Many of these items were reported stolen from local residences in the Eel River Valley, Dyerville and Highway 36 areas.

Deputies continued the search for a cache of firearms that they believed was stashed somewhere on the property based on the numerous empty gun cases they found during
earlier searches.

guns3During the search of the 55-acre property, an alert deputy located a cave in some rocks that was covered with brush.  Upon further investigation the deputy discovered the cave was filled with numerous firearms.

Deputies recovered 100 weapons on the property, 99 of which were in that cave.  Of the weapons recovered at least 20 are confirmed as stolen.

Deputies recovered a fully automatic MG 42 caliber WW II Machine gun that is belt fed– and with a belt full of ammunition.  In the weapons cache were numerous assault weapons
including SKS, Colt AR-15’s, sawed off shotguns with
pistol grips, and Tech Nine assault weapons.

Several of the assault weapons are to believed to be
fully automatic.  Many of the weapons were loaded.

Deputies are continuing to try to determine what is– and what is not– reported stolen property.  Citizens that are missing property, especially a firearm and who live in the area of Flint Rock Road may E-mail Sheriff’s Property Technician Ryan Chamberlain at Rchamberlain@co.humboldt.ca.us.

guns4This is an ongoing investigation.  Additional charges against Ryan Floyd, who resembles Alfred E. Newman, will be sought.

 

PREVIOUS UPDATE:

The investigation into Ryan Floyd is continuing, the HCSO said.

Deputies initially located 42 grams of hashish at Floyd’s residence, an additional four grams of suspected methamphetamine, an additional stolen trailer ( besides the stolen car), thousands of rounds of various ammunition, twenty ballistic
vests, numerous tactical holsters and empty rifle
cases, and a total of 6 high capacity magazines.

guns6The Sheriff’s Office is continuing their investigation into this case and the California Highway Patrol is assisting with processing the numerous vehicles on the property to determine whether or not they are stolen.

The total amount of dried marijuana bud seized on the property was approximately 117 pounds.

Previously, on February 7, at 8:30 a.m., Humboldt County Sheriff’s Deputies and Humboldt County Drug Task Force Agents conducted a probation search at the residence of Ryan Floyd, 30-years-old, in the 500 block of Flint Rock Road (off Wade Road ) in Garberville.

guns7When deputies arrived at the residence they located Floyd and arrested him on the outstanding no bail felony warrant for his arrest.  Deputies on scene conducted a probation search of the residence.

So far deputies have located:

  • 45 pounds of dried marijuana bud
  • $12,000.00 cash

  • 1 oz of suspected heroin
  • 2 grams of suspected methamphetamine
  • Body armor

bear cameraOne of the vehicles is confirmed stolen.  Deputies anticipate being at the residence for a lengthy period of time conducting their investigation and searching the property and vehicles.

Besides the outstanding arrest warrant, Floyd was arrested for:

  • Possession of a controlled substance
  • Possession of a controlled substance for sale
  • Cultivation of marijuana
  • Possession of marijuana for sale
  • Illegal possession of a firearm magazine
  • llegal possession of ammunition by a convicted felon
  • llegal possession of a firearm
  • Violation of probation

Other charges may be added as the investigation continues.  He was transported and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility where he his being held without bail.

gerbilDeputies also located a second male on the property identified as Gregory Benson, 48-years-old, from Garberville.  Benson was arrested and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility for illegal possession of ammunition and a firearm by a prohibited person.  His bail was set at $50,000.

So how did it all begin?  With a very slow speed chase.

On February 2. a deputy attempted to pull over a black Chevy Silverado pickup truck for driving erratically and with no rear license plate on Dyerville Loop Road and Fort Seward Road in the Dyerville area of Humboldt County.

When the deputy activated his overhead lights the vehicle
failed to stop– and a pursuit was initiated.

madA slow speed pursuit traveled east on Fort Seward road at speeds of around 30 mph.  At one point the pickup traveled onto the middle fork of the Eel River on the gravel bar before looping back onto Fort Seward Road.

A second HCSO deputy caught up with the original deputy and they continued pursing the vehicle on Fort Seward Road at speeds of approximately 30 mph.  When the vehicle drove up to the intersection of Dyerville Loop Road and Fort Seward Road, it turned south onto Dyerville Loop road.

Approximately one half mile later, the vehicle drove off the roadway and down a hillside before crashing into a tree.  When deputies reached the vehicle it was unoccupied. 
Deputies learned the vehicle was registered to a
residence in the 29000 block of Alderpoint Road in
Garberville.

When contact was made with the registered owners of the truck, they were on vacation out of the area.  A relative checked their residence and learned the vehicle was just stolen from their residence and their residence had been burglarized.

 

The Sheriff’s Office was asking for the public’s help in locating Ryan Floyd, until they recently found him.  His companion, Honey Walsh, is a persons of interest in this case and presumably still wanted for questioning and some ’splainin’ to do.

floydFloyd was described as follows:

  • White male adult
  • 30-years-old
  • 5-8 and 155 pounds
  • Strawberry blond hair

Floyd currently has a no-bail felony warrant for his arrest for being armed while possessing narcotics issued by Humboldt County Superior Court.

Honey Walsh is described as:

White Female adult

  • 29-years-old
  • 5-6, and 130 lbs
  • Brown hair and green eyes

Miss Honey-Pot is from the Cave Junction, Oregon, area.  She has a misdemeanor warrant for her arrest for possession of a controlled substance out of Humboldt County Superior Court.
