New developments in Del Norte Manhunt

CRESCENT CITY - The Del Norte County Sheriff’s Office continues to search for a second suspect involved in a vehicle theft and high speed chase. Earlier Tuesday night, detectives interviewed Daniel Buchert but it was determined he wasn’t a suspect.

Monday, Daniel Cardy was arrested after allegedly leading authorities on a high speed chase in a stolen vehicle out of Brookings. He reached speeds of over 100-miles per hour before crashing near Wilson Road and Highway 101 in Smith River. A manhunt was conducted today with sheriff’s deputies and law enforcement from Pelican Bay. They went door to door in Smith River but couldn’t locate a second suspect. The Department of Justice’s crime lab will inspect the vehicle Wednesday for more evidence.
