Park Rangers with Redwood National and State Parks are requesting the public’s assistance in apprehending two individuals suspected of criminal behavior in the parks. In early September a vehicle was broken into while parked on the Newton B. Drury Parkway in Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park. Several items were taken from the vehicle. Not long afterward, a credit card stolen during the burglary was used at both Target and Walmart stores in Eureka, Calif.
Security cameras captured the two suspects and their vehicle at Walmart and captured one suspect at Target. Rangers were able to identify one of the suspects as Candice Swain, 30 years old, of Klamath. However, Ms. Swain is known in the past to sometimes reside in Crescent City, Calif. Attempts to locate Swain have been unsuccessful.
The other suspect is a male with a shaved head wearing a white shirt and jeans. Rangers have not been able to identify him. The two suspects were associated with a black four-door sedan. Redwood National and State Parks asks that anyone with information on either suspect or their whereabouts to call Ranger Pero at (707) 465-7761.
