Man in Garberville gun cache case pleads not guilty

EUREKA — A Northern California man has pleaded not guilty to charges of keeping a cache of weapons, ammunition and drugs in Humboldt County.

The Times-Standard of Eureka reports (http://bit.ly/YesUdj ) that 30-year-old Ryan Floyd appeared in court Wednesday on 11 felony drug and weapons charges.

The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office said last week that it found 110 guns stashed inside a cave on Floyd's 55-acre property in Garberville. Sheriff Mike Downey says at least 20 of the weapons were stolen and likely bound for the black market.

Deputies also found 117 pounds of dried marijuana, $12,000 in cash, thousands of rounds of ammunition and jewelry and vehicles that had been reported stolen.

Floyd is due back in court on April 3.
