FORTUNA - Two wanted men are arrested after a vehicle pursuit ends near the Eel river.
Taken into custody was 35-year old Joseph Olivo and 29-year old Mario Nunez. Just before 10 yesterday morning, Olivo was observed by two officers in a parked car near Strong’s Creek Plaza. As law enforcement approached, Olivo fled in a vehicle towards Highway 101 leading authorities on a chase that ended on Singly Road in Loleta. He surrendered without incident.
Nunez had exited the car before the chase and was found in a business at Strongs Creek. Both were booked into the Humboldt County Jail on outstanding felony warrants. Nunez had an added charge of possession of narcotics.
Should the Humboldt County Correctional Facility provide more re-entry fairs for prisoners?
