Subject: Possible Bomb at 14th Street near Short Street

On January 18, 2023 at approximately 8:14 a.m., Officers with the Eureka Police Department (EPD) responded to the report of a suspicious device located near a business at 14th and Short Streets. Officers secured the area around the device. Upon examination of the device it was determined a mutual aid request was warranted and the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) team responded to the scene. EOD was able to render the device safe while at the scene. The investigation to this point has revealed that the device was manufactured to resemble an explosive device, however we are unable to determine if it was an actual functional device.

The Eureka Police Department would like to thank the HCSO EOD team for their assistance and our community for your patience while we conducted this investigation. If anyone has any information about this incident you are asked to contact EPD at 707-441-4044.
