Today’s Rio Dell Raid–The Story According to Police Chief Graham Hill
Hill told us that his officers had been collecting information on this residence for some time. People who have been associated with the residence were arrested with similar drug related crimes leading officers to believe that the residence was involved in drug sales, he explained.
About 11 a.m., Hill said that officers from the Rio Dell Police Department along with the SWAT team (a multi-agency critical incident unit overseen by the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Department) and deputies from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office served a warrant in the 300 block of First Avenue.
The two suspects, Hill said, were taken into custody without incident. He thanked the other law enforcement involved for helping serve the warrant. “The Rio Dell Police Department is very appreciative of the assistance it received from other agencies,” he said.
