Wanted Man Allegedly Attempts to Flee (Again) But Captured by EPD (Again)
On October 12 about 12:10 a.m., a Eureka police officer saw a vehicle that matched one belonging to a probationer, Pia Cheng, age 31 of Eureka with outstanding felony warrants. Pia Cheng, wanted for several violations (see earlier story of his attempt to flee here) was allegedly driving on B Street near 6th. The officer followed the vehicle and called for backup because Cheng was believed to carry firearms.
Cheng, Powell said, was soon located in common hallway of an apartment complex near the intersection of California and Chope which was across the street from the abandoned vehicle. Cheng was taken into custody without further incident.
Officers “recovered meth and meth pipes and over four pounds of processed marijuana from his Cheng’s car,” reported Powell.
Both Pia Cheng, 31 and Alexandria Lozano, 33, both of Eureka were booked on charges of possession of marijuana for sales, possession of methamphetamine for sales, and possession of paraphernalia, according to Powell. “Cheng was also booked on outstanding warrants for possession of methamphetamine for sales.”
