Earlier Chapter: Seven Raids Conducted Simultaneously as a result of Long Investigation, says Humboldt County Sheriff



  • Can we assume Mexican cartel?

    • Who cares? The HCS Department needs to keep pressing and run with this momentum. These are pretty good size weight amounts, not personal use. There is obviously a drug problem in this county that needs to get dealt with. Picking up the parasite users are not slowing down the problem. Busting the bigger players should be focus. Keep it up!

      • Who wouldn’t care?

      • I second Exactly what you are saying whole heartedly 24 kGold! HCO, keep the momentum rolling. Do not start Resting on your Laurels now! Run with the investigation that you have and then when you are finished, keep investigating which ever Cartels that are involved. Then work your way up the mountain to the King Pins!!!
        You WILL have your Community’s full support.
        I Pray for your safety and health along with the ability to maintain the momentum of Arrest’s!
        In Jeses name,

    • These chili choking methicans need to be eradicated! Shit can the Liberazi’s sugar coated bullshit! THE METHICANS ARE A PLAGUE! So are the Bullshitgarians..stop selling land to these greedy parasites!

    • https://panamapapers.icij.org/20160425-cartel-arrests-uruguay.html

      Five members of a couple of the numerous cartels were arrested recently, for laundering money for drug trafficking organizations.

  • what’s the term given to all these good ol’ boys/neighbors/cousins/nephews/brothers/sisters/ – born n bred in the redwoods and mountains and towns here…
    you know, our THOSE native son dealers in dope?

    i think i’m out of the loop…

  • No. You’re the one that is looped.😵

  • hmmm….Those 1911 pistols chambered in .38 Super aren’t very common…Interesting..

    • I have heard for years that the .38 Super is popular in Mexico as the “military” .45 and 9mm were not legal for civilians. Whether there is any truth to this I don’t know. Sounds legit.

  • Food for thought

    No face craters? These Guys are definately cartel.

  • Happy Cinco de Mayo!

  • Better call Saul.

  • If they were illegal aliens, would the press release say that?

  • Time get down on your knees and pray to Jesus Malverde and with any help from him you may be released before your maker calls for your return.

    Unless these pinche bastards are charged federally they will probably be out in a NY minute.

    Let’s hope they have a hold on them. Not like the last guy who walk w/in 1 hour.

  • Ya the methican walked and never came back .If the cops would check there imagration status if they’re illegal they should be held for the federal government to take care of it. They should do all their time, and then get deported. The IRS should be investigating .I’m sure there were no taxes paid on 155,000
