Wanted man, woman arrested with firearm, drugs

LOLETA, CA. – Two are arrested in Loleta with drugs and guns, and the male suspect had an escape warrant out of Washington State.

34-year-old Terrance McCovey was parked at the north end of Singley Road on Saturday in Loleta with a passenger, 20-year-old Maxine White, when they were found by a Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office sergeant.

The sergeant says the pair had a meth pipe sitting out plain view, and further inspection of the car turned up a .22 caliber pistol, a large number of hypodermic syringes, marijuana and methamphetamine.

White and McCovey were both arrested and booked into the Humboldt County Jail.

McCovey had been previously arrested in McKinleyville on September 2 for having a .45 caliber pistol and two assault style rifles in a vehicle.
