Did You Lose Your Drugs?
Found outside the Patriot Gas Station early this morning one striped purse with needles and 59 grams of meth. To claim, contact the Garberville Sheriff Substation at (707) 932-2761.
Okay, so that’s not a real ad. But the meth, needles, and etc. really were found. When we learned of the find, we asked Corporal Chad Zeck of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, “Is 59 grams a lot of meth?
He kindly explained that meth is often sold by the 1/4 of a gram so this could represent potentially close to 240 sales. There were, he said, a number of empty baggies, a scale, and a list of phone numbers included with the striped purse discovered at the gas station in Cooks Valley this morning.
“If we had found this on someone,” he explained, “this would be a solid possession for sales case.” However, tracking down the owner of the meth will be very difficult–unless, of course, they would like to come in and claim it…
“But, getting this much meth off the street is great!” he said.
