Humboldt County resident experiences two thefts in three days


She has been a dental hygienist for 16 years, but after the California fires she decided she wanted to attend nursing school at College of the Redwoods to help those in need. Unfortunately, luck has not been on her side since moving to Humboldt County.

Celene Odell and her grandmother had one last night out before her big move, but as the night went on, Odell found that her wallet was missing from her purse.

And just three days later, she went to the DMV in Eureka to replace her stolen driver’s license. She then called the Eureka Police Department to file a report. She tells me there’s no way her car could have been towed or repossessed. She parked legally and she also paid off her car just last month.

Even with two major thefts in just three days, Odell said it could have been worse. She hopes others will take extra precautions after hearing her story.

Odell asks all those to look out for her 2012 black Jeep Grand Cherokee with the license plate 6XLB225. It’s in new condition, but may be dirty.
