Fortuna Police Locates and Arrests Two Suspects Wanted on Federal Warrant Out of Alabama


Fortuna Police arrested two suspects wanted on a federal warrant for the shooting of an individual out of Alabama, and “considered armed and dangerous.

Based on information provided to the department by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Fortuna Officers were on the look-out for two suspects thought to have been staying in a campground in Eureka but were believed to still be in the area.  After an investigation by Fortuna Detective Brian Taylor, he located and identified two vehicles belonging to the individuals on the 2100 block of Riverwalk Drive.

Two women originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma; Tierzah Faith Mapson, 27, and Elisa Anne Mapson, 28, were quickly located by Fortuna officers and taken into custody after a brief struggle.  

According to the warrant, both women were wanted for “conspiracy and interstate domestic violence related to an incident where someone was shot with a rifle but not killed.”  Tierzah Faith Mapson was  taken to Humboldt County Correctional Facility to await extradition back to Alabama.  Elisa Anne Mapson will be transported after obtaining medical clearance from a local hospital.
