EPD Chief Andy Mills:
187 suspect from NYC in custody by POP and CIS. #Don'tvisitgrows #callBrittany
Press Release will be out shortly but I got this much from EPD Crime Analyst Brittany Powell.
"POP and CIS detectives were working following up on an unrelated case and a male fled out the back of a residence. Turns out he has a hormicide warrant out of New York. "
On March 7, 2017, at about 10:15 a.m., Detectives from the Eureka Police Department's Problem Oriented Policing Unit (POP) and Criminal Investigation Section (CIS) were following up on a felony investigation on the 2000 block of California Street when an unknown male fled out the back door of a residence.
Detectives were able to detain the male, who then gave multiple different identities. After further investigation, it was determined the male was Jonathen Delvalle, 24 of New York. Delvalle was found to have warrants out of the City of New York for homicide and a felony drug charge.
Delvalle was booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility and is awaiting extradition.
