A McKinleyville resident reported to the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office Tuesday afternoon that a large gun safe and pickup truck had been stolen from a residence, according to a Wednesday sheriff's office press release.
After leaving the residence located on the 1700 block of Letz Lane around 8:30 a.m. and returning at 4 p.m., the victim found that a large gun safe -- containing eight rifles and shotguns, 15 handguns and a large amount of money -- and a light metallic blue 1998 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck were missing. Sheriff's deputies are investigating the case and have yet to identify any subjects. The press release states that the truck has a 4-inch lift, a matching canopy with "Kneeland Helitack" and "Fear no fish" stickers on its window and license plate number 5V44678.
