This is a press release from the Eureka Police Department. The information has not been proven in a court of law and the individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty:
On 10/20/15 at about 10:33 p.m., An Officer with the Eureka Police Department conducted a vehicle investigation on a parked Nissan sedan near 6th and N Streets after observing the occupants acting suspiciously.
The Officer recognized the passenger as Perry Bailey, 29 of Eureka, from previous law enforcement contacts. Bailey attempted to claim he was his brother, as he’s done to the same Officer in the past. Bailey was ultimately identified by his tattoos. The driver was identified as Sara Dorey, 21 of Eureka.
On the center console, the Officer saw a paper plate covered in tin foil and initially thought it contained tacos. Upon further investigation, it was determined the plate contained a large amount of Methamphetamine. In total, Officers located over 3.6 ounces of Methamphetamine in the car.
Bailey and Dorey were arrested and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility for possession of Methamphetamine for sales and transportation of Methamphetamine. Bailey was also booked on probation violations and outstanding warrants for drug possession.
