On June 16, 2017, at about 9:00 A.M. Special Agents with the Humboldt County Drug Task Force with assistance from a Humboldt County District Attorney's Office Investigator served a search warrant at a residence located in the 2500 block of C Street in Eureka.

Along with the drugs, evidence of sales and narcotics use were found throughout the residence. These items included digital scales, packaging materials, pay and owe sheets, hypodermic needles, straws and glass pipes.
