    Just wondering in this person happened to be in Ashland recently?

    This guy hangs around Arcata. Or used to. He claimed his name was “Shamus” and that he was from Ireland. He used an Irish accent, which is fake. Has dyed black hair. He reminds me of a sociopath and a pathological liar. He is actually from Massachusettes and is supposedly a meth addict, he drinks a lot. He has arrest records in Florida and Montana as well for forgery, assault, theft…basically he is a con man. He may be homeless and likes to couch surf and steal people’s stuff. When you meet him he acts very helpful and nice, almost tries TOO hard to be your friend. If he ever gets out of jail…watch out.
