ARCATA MARSH – On Tuesday Dec. 20, 2011 at about 7:45 a.m., the Arcata Police Department received information about a vehicle that was reported stolen in Arcata on Monday, Dec. 19.

Daniel Allan Rausch

It was reported by a citizen that the vehicle was at the Arcata Marsh, located at the end of I Street. Officers responded to the area and found the vehicle parked and occupied by two males, later identified as 31-year-old Daniel Allan Rausch, and 28-year-old Aaron Zachery Huber. Rausch and Huber were taken into custody without incident.

A search incident to arrest revealed that Rausch was in possession of suspected methamphetamine, suspected heroin  and hypodermic syringes. Huber was in possession of suspected concentrated cannabis and hypodermic syringes.
“The car was full of stuff to huff and puff and toke and smoke and suck and shoot up and whatever else can be done with drugs,” the owner told the Eye after recovering the vehicle. “It also had lots of stolen stuff in it like tools and bikes and backpacks and skateboards and iPods and cell phones.”
A witness said that Rausch was the alpha of the duo, and that Huber was indignant on his arrest, loudly protesting his innocence. “I didn’t know it was stolen!” he wailed unconvincingly.

Aaron Zachery Huber

Rausch and Huber were booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on the following charges:

Daniel Allan Rausch: PC 496 – Possession of stolen property, H&S 11377(a) – Possession of a controlled substance, and B&P 4140 – Possession of a hypodermic syringe.

Aaron Zachery Huber:  PC 496 – Possession of stolen property, PC 11357(a) – Possession of concentrated cannabis, and B&P 4140 – Possession of a hypodermic syringe.

The vehicle was released to the owner. On recovering her vehicle, the owner approached the car in which Huber was detained and made eye contact with him through the window.

She then crossed her two forefingers into a fearsome “hex” sign and told Huber, “I’m putting a grandmother’s curse on you!”

She said Huber appeared startled at the gesture.
