Eureka Police are seeking a subject who raced away after officers tried to confront him about possible drug use about quarter to one this afternoon.
According to police spokesperson Brittany Powell, after receiving a report of a suspicious person possibly injecting drugs in the 2500 block of Fairfield about 12:45 p.m, Eureka Police responded to the scene. The suspect fled towards Long Street by jumping over fences. The white male in his twenties then fled through the bushes. Eventually, he ran through people’s yards and eventually towards Buhne Street.
Officers lost sight of him around the 700 block of Buhne Street. Officers are keeping a lookout at this point for a white male in his twenties with a baseball cap on backwards and gym shorts. If you believe you have information, please contact the EPD at (707) 441-4060
