Two people detained after suspicious U-Haul truck attempting to access unlawful properties

Two people were detained yesterday after suspiciously driving a U-haul truck and attempting to access private properties in the area.

27- year-old Nolan Lewis and 32-year-old Monique Solorio were arrested yesterday after Deputies responded to the 8500 block of Wilder Ridge Road in Honeydew.

After searching the truck, deputies located a large number of gear used to impersonate police officers. In addition, they located pepper spray, airsoft guns, a garbage bag of dried, unprocessed cannabis and burglary tools.

Lewis and Solorio were transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility in Eureka where they were cited and released.

According to deputies, they are still looking for a suspect vehicle described as a red or maroon pickup truck with a light bar over the windshield and a front bumper hitch.

This case is still under investigation at this time. Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office encourages anyone with more information to contact them directly.
