Fortuna Police Officers Apprehend Wanted Sex Offender


On August 28, 2018 at about 9:00 PM, The Fortuna Police Department received a citizen’s tip that Pulido Segura, age 34 of Fortuna, who was sought on several felony charges, was at an apartment on Rohnerville Road.  Fortuna Officers responded to the residence and learned that the suspect was on the property, and possibly armed. Officers set up a perimeter around the residence. Fortuna Police were assisted by the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, Eureka Police K-9 and Humboldt County SWAT Team in searching the property and surrounding area. Ultimately law enforcement was unable to locate Segura, who most likely fled the property prior to the SWAT deployment.

Pulido was wanted on at least eight separate felony charges related to allegations of child sexual abuse. A statewide bulletin had been distributed to law enforcement agencies throughout the state seeking his apprehension.

On August 29, 2018 at about 7:00 AM a resident on the 3900 block of Rohner St. called to report that a subject was possibly sleeping in her backyard behind a compost barrel. Fortuna Police Officers responded and located Segura sleeping at the location. Segura was taken into custody without incident. 

Fortuna Police department is grateful for the tip provided by a community citizen that ultimately led to his arrest.
