The Humboldt County Drug Task Force are raiding a residence in the 1500 block of 6th Street in Eureka searching for drugs. The search warrant was served around noon today.

One man and one woman have been handcuffed and detained. Reportedly, methamphetamine, heroin, and marijuana have been located in the home. (See here for a video from North Coast News.)

We’ve requested more information and will update when we can.woman police officer [Stormy Taylor]

UPDATE 9:15 p.m.: We spoke to Lt. Bryan Quenell of the Drug Task Force, he told us that earlier reports that heroin and marijuana were located were incorrect. Although a drug sniffing dog was brought in, only one gram of meth was located in the home along with packaging indicating sales, and three firearms, said Quenell. The firearms were not registered.

Quenell said, the DTF will be asking for warrants for the residents but as the amount of drugs found was a misdemeanor amount, no one was arrested at this time.

  • THe weed is harmless enough but the rest of the crap they were selling is VERY bad news!!! Those 2 substances really do make you do what Reefer Madness tried to say Cannabis did/does!!! As in Rape, Kill, Rob, possibly even go full on Alice’s Restaraunt (Eating Dead Burnt Bodies etc)!!!! :-/

    • Honeydew Bridge Chump

      Like the new Department Of Justice head said last week, ‘ good people don’t smoke marijuana ‘.

      • But lying to congress is ok.

        • QQ he didn’t lie to anybody. He answered a direct question with a direct response.
          I’m not a Trump fan, but it’s so wrong to let lies fly by.

      • Good people don’t support Hair Hitler The Chump trump. Only useful pawn idiots, [edit] cops, and peabrain party of STUPID Conservatives are against cannabis. Hopefully you all get sick and do not use cannabis to beat it.

      • And good presidents don’t troll on twitter.

  • That RV looks kinda familiar.

  • At least EPD is doing something about it. When was the last time we heard that the lame downy sheriff office busted a drug house in our county .,for meth or heroin they better do something the pot cash cow is not so much anymore .earn your money cops ,and bust a dope house at least once and awhile .

    • This was a bust by the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Drug Task Force.

    • sharpen your pencil

      Lol, hey smart one, Quenell is a sheriff. The HUMBOLDT Drug Task force IS part of the HUMBOLDT County Sheriff’s department. But don’t let that stop you from being less than intellegent!

  • The slang terms “marijuana” and “marihuana” are offensive. They have anti-Mexican origins.

    Thank goodness they got that whole gram of meth before it hit the streets! I feel so much safer now.

  • That is funny!

  • I take back thinking it was EPD it did say they were involved ,so I assumed they were in charge .sorry I don’t keep up with which agency was involved my bad sharpen your pencil .some people aren’t as smart as you .my bad for wanting something better ,for or community .instead you belittle people if they don’t have the facts .but like I said when was the last time they the Humboldt co sheriff dept busted a large scale meth heroin shit hole .a gram is very sad on there part a couple pounds of meth and heroin .all that man power for a gram of meth really !!!!!sharpen your pencil I suggest you find something better to do with your time .I also thought having un registered fire arms was a arrest able offence.,but I’m sure sharpen your pencil knows all the facts .

  • Meth and unregistered guns is not nothing.

  • Unregistered guns and meth is not nothing.
    Different people are seen there every day, but they never go in.
