Monterey County Sheriffs and CHP are on scene on Old Coast Road in Big Sur; the road was boobytrapped with screw-studded boards near the cattle guard, when a tree service inspector got out to look at her tire, she was set upon by 4-5 armed men yelling "alto."
She got away, drove on the flat to a gate near Bixby and got help. Source in Big Sur reports MCSO and CHP have set up a roadblock. She may have stumbled onto an illegal grow, but not sure. This started about 70 minutes ago.
Source reports helicopters are now circling the area and there are police stationed at the gate at Bixby Creek. CHP and MCSO pios aren't picking up right now.
Source, a longtime Big Sur resident, adds: "The first thing you think is a grow, maybe cartel, but it's weird for them. You're giving away your location and that's a lot of dudes when harvest isn't for six weeks."
Source adds that police have asked residents to stay away from the roadblock.
Neighbors down in the canyon are being escorted out...
Update from CHP public info officer: Sheriff's SWAT team is looking for suspect or suspects seen brandishing weapon or weapons on Old Coast Road in Big Sur. They're still not sure what they have on their hands. TBC.
