  • The mustache looks like he’s been snorting baby shit 🤣 awesome job epd! 68 and still doing that shit, I’m sure they will be rehabilitated this time.

  • Great work starting to arrest, and hopefully keep, these addicted dealers off the streets. Maybe our local LE is finally doing something to improve the huge crime problem.

  • Ugly. A matched pair.

  • Well, I am sure they were just trying to make a decent living and honestly pay their outrageous rent, which was driven up by all the indoor grows…

    It’s no worse than alcohol, after all… And at least they were not selling MARIJUANA!

    Assassins of youth…

    • You accidently wrote indoor instead of outdoor. There are hardly any indoor grows left. The value of cannabis vs the cost of indoor production makes it no longer feasible.

  • The amounts sound like personal. I mean come on policia let’s get some kilos or at least some ounces. No self respecting Dept should spend the time and our money on the petty stuff. Really…. How boring….

  • Mere peanuts

  • Now that they can’t bust pot as much now they got to deal with the coke meth ,heroin ,but let’s get some pounds of meth ,and heroin off the streets.

  • Cabin in the woods

    I’ll pass on them crackers.

  • If that was in Eureka,then what is all of the cops inclueding FBI doing in Rio Dell at the appartment across from the post office on main street,today? Plus as I was checking out the river at the Rio Dell bridge I see a bunch of orenge jumpsuits down on the river bar at the end of edwards.they wear skipping rocks.odd & they were pritty good at it to. Lol I keep trying but I suck at it.
