On 10/19/2022 local Wildlife Officers with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) received a call for assistance from the California Highway Patrol (CHP) in Garberville. The previous evening, CHP received a report from a landowner in southern Humboldt concerning a possible poached deer.

Wildlife Officers responded to the parking lot of Ray’s Food Place in Garberville where CHP had a suspect vehicle stopped. Wildlife Officers took over the investigation and found 2 suspects in possession of a male deer. After interviews and examination of physical evidence, Richard Elmer Frederick, 61, of Burnt Ranch, CA and Jerry Don Williams, 62, of Lodi, CA were cited and released for the illegal take of deer and trespassing on private property for the purpose of hunting.
