imageservlet (55) For the past several months, agents with the Humboldt County Drug Task Force have been investigating a narcotics trafficker who was believed to be supplying large quantities of methamphetamine to persons in the Fortuna area.

On October 30, 2015, agents served a Humboldt County Superior Court search warrant in the 1700 block of Willow Drive, Fortuna. At the residence, agents contacted Edwin Amir PERAZA (Age 29) and a male juvenile. During a search of the residence, agents located approximately 3.5 pounds of suspected methamphetamine, approximately one ounce of suspected Cocaine, a digital scale, and packaging materials.

  • “The Arcata Police Department seized 3.5 pounds of methamphetamine and PERAZA was arrested and convicted for possession of approximately ¼ pound of methamphetamine.”

    Now we know how Arcata pays for all their “Traffic Circles”

  • What is it, a toss of a coin that determines what the bail is or even if they will keep you. Pounds of heroin, coin says you are free to go. Pounds of meth, coins says you stay.

    “During the investigation, agents learned PERAZA had been investigated by the Arcata Police Department in 2012. The Arcata Police Department seized 3.5 pounds of methamphetamine and PERAZA was arrested and convicted for possession of approximately ¼ pound of methamphetamine.” This is a little confusing.

  • Oh its about time ,but they will o/r ,or set bail what kind of trouble did he get for the last 3.5 pds 3 yrs ago No prison time for that one wow , but anyway 3.5 pds off the street awesome job

  • He’ll get out quick,but without the meth.yay for that being off the streets.lets keep rolling with the busts,keep this shit off the streets and away from our precious children so they have a chance at life.They are the future and if they see there’s no future in meth then we all feel better about their future.Sorry for rambling but I have seen 1st hand what it does to a life,to a family and it’s devastating

  • By looking at him I’m just about sure he doesn’t indulge in his product. I’m sure his customers don’t look as healthy.

  • Whats up with the alter set up for the meth shot? Obnoxious or relevant?

    • The Russians kept the Spanish from NorCal, it does appear that we need a cultural revival.

      Either way, glad to see Mexican meth off the streets.

      Only hire Costa Ricans because they don’t like Mexico.

      The Cops should produce a transparent video of it’s destruction, weighed and watched by regular people so the alleged corruption doesn’t become an issue.

      What would they have to hide?

    • Lost Croat Outburst

      There’s a patron saint for drug cartels. Seriously. All illegal narco trafficking. I don’t know if legal weed will have a patron saint pulling for us. Willie Nelson? Not yet. The horseback dude looks like the Christian Roman soldier who cut his cape in half for a beggar. That is just SO not happening! SO first century. Jesus in the middle? Beats me.

  • Its cliche but what is in many movies is too true; this guy will call his “boss” who will pay for an expensive lawyer. The “boss” will then contact whomever they have on the payroll within our county, state & federal systems and get his “employee” out of trouble and back to making money for the “boss”.
    Its not much different than when corporate asses get in trouble, different products and skin color but same game.
    This guy will most likely never step foot in prison.

  • An internet search found reports of average use of 1/2 gram a day which works out to about 15 grams a month or about 1/2 ounce per user per month.

    This was about 1587 grams, so it would be a 3 day supply for 1,000 people, a month’s supply for 112 people, or somewhere in between.

    Either way, that’s still a large number of people to help get off this stuff.

    • Good math! I like how numbers can tell a story.

      What happens when the mutants don’t get a fix? Does crazy crime go up?

      Those would be cool numbers to see….

    • Hell, thats a couple days for the county – I’ll bet 10-50 pounds a week flows through here…..wanna know for sure? Have the sewage outfall of Eureka, Fortuna, etc analysed……they’ll tell you exactly (but only the people that pee in toilets of course ;^p)

  • In Mexico,I wonder what the cost to produce a pound of meth is ? what are the cash rewards for selling it ?

    • $200 plus labor. Elbow….

      Mexico should get the neutron bomb, followed up with waves of guys in pick up trucks.

      Toppling the government there and freeing the people would score big in the eyes of Central and South Americans.

      Having a terrorist nation and culture there has brought down property values.

    • It costs anywhere between $50 and $100/lb to produce in the big labs (more like pharmaceutical factories) The bribes and paying transport adds a lot…..

  • It’s the fuel for the plague in Humboldt only the strong will servive I hope every gram of that retched drug is destroyed at least that will not be destroying anymore lives

  • Patron Saint of Mexican Narcos……..Chapel in Culiacan Sinaloa…….they wear him on gold necklaces , big belt buckles , on their guns, shrines in their pads.

  • Hi Kym. If Peraza is being held without bail, I assume he’s been before a judge. It would be helpful to voters to know the names of the judges in these cases, e.g. the one in Fortuna where the two guys were released on their O.R. Would you be willing to include the name of the judge in your postings? Thanks a lot!

  • I bet the guy wishes he got busted ,for heroin he be on his way to mexico already

  • 2 days ago:
    147lbs Meth; 30lbs Heroin, not sure what “recovered nine farms” means?

  • It costs between 2-300$ to produce a lb in a large pharma lab in Mexico biggest expense being raw affedra. Wholesale they get 6500$ in tijuana or they have their own guys bring it in and break it up and sell it in smaller quantities 20,000$ a lb then. I hate the stuff it’s awful to see someone you care about destroy themselves with it.
