Traffic Stop Nets Large Amount of Meth and Heroin, Says Sheriff’s Office
This is a press release from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. The information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty:
On Wednesday, November 18, 2015 at approximately 9:40 a.m. a Deputy with the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office recognized the driver of a vehicle as 25 year old Robert Glenn Adam Ellis, of Fortuna. From prior contacts the Deputy knew Ellis’ driver’s license was suspended and he is on multiple counts of probation in Humboldt County with a search and seizure clause. The Deputy conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle on Brenard Rd on the Bear River Rancheria.
The Deputy contacted Ellis and Ellis admitted to the Deputy his driver’s license was still suspended and he also claimed to not have any drugs on him. There was a female passenger in the front passenger seat and a male passenger in the rear seat. The female passenger, Allissa Chad Brock, age 25, of Willow Creek, told the Deputy she had needles in her purse. Brock exited the vehicle and then told the Deputy she had heroin and methamphetamine in her bra. The Deputy directed Brock to remove the narcotics from her bra and she placed them on the patrol vehicle.
Daniel Michael Langevin, age 25, was not on probation and did not have warrants. Langevin requested to leave and the Deputy said he was free to go. Langevin got out of the vehicle and started walking away.
The Deputy continued his search of the vehicle and located a box on the floor next to where Langevin was sitting. Inside the box were two plastic bags containing what appeared to be a large quantity of heroin and methamphetamine. Before the Deputy mentioned the narcotics to Brock and Ellis, both exclaimed the narcotics did not belong to them but to the subject walking away. The Deputy drove a short distance and located Langevin. The Deputy explained to Langevin he found evidence that would send all three people to jail unless he could determine who the owner was. Langevin described the location, container, and type of narcotics located within. The Deputy estimated the bags each contained one half ounce each.
Brock was released on scene with a citation for HS11377(a)- Possess a Controlled Substance; HS11350(a)- Possession of Heroin; and HS11364(a)- Possess Drug Paraphernalia. Ellis was released on scene with a citation for VC14601.1(a)- Suspended License; and VC16028(a)- No Insurance. Langevin was transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility and booked for HS11378 – Possession of a Controlled Substance for Sale; and HS11351- Possess or Purchase a Controlled Substance for Sale.
