WILLOW CREEK — This past Wednesday, February 15th, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office was alerted to the whereabouts fo one Joshua Wentworth (28), a wanted fugitive on the hook for three misdemeanor warrants for resisting arrest, driving on a suspended license, and possession of a Billy club.
Just after 10 AM, deputies from the HCSO Trinity River Division, along with CHP officers, arrived at a motel on the 39000 block of State Highway 299 where Wentworth was reportedly staying with his girlfriend, Tamara Conley — also a wanted fugitive.
Due to Wentworth’s status as armed and dangerous, authorities established a perimeter and called for Wentworth to surrender.
Both subjects stepped out and were taken into custody without incident.
Wentworth is now housed at the Humboldt County Correctional Facility.
