FORTUNA - A Fortuna man was arrested Thursday after law enforcement found a large amount of marijuana, money and guns.

Taken into custody was 29-year old "Justin Christensen". This past Saturday, a BLM officer was making a compliance check at the Humboldt Bay Wildlife Refuge when he contacted Christensen in a pickup truck. After a search of the vehicle, eleven contractor-sized bags of marijuana and equipment associated with the production of hash oil was discovered. The marijuana and equipment was seized and Christensen was released.

Thursday morning, the Humboldt County Drug Task Force served a warrant at Christensen’s home on Pinecrest Drive. A search turned up twelve pounds of marijuana, several ounces of concentrated cannabis, scales and drug processing equipment. Four firearms and $13,000 were also found on scene. Christensen was booked into the Humboldt County Jail on a long list of charges.
