Humboldt County Drug task forceOn June 1st at about 1:00 P.M. Special Agents with the Humboldt County Drug Task Force with assistance from United States Postal Inspectors arrested 22 year old Qiday Powell at the Post Office in Hoopa. She was arrested for possession of a controlled substance for sale.

Earlier in the week, Special Agents became aware of a suspicious package being sent via the US Postal Service with the final destination of the package being the Hoopa Post Office. The package was addressed to a local resident with a Post Office Box. Based on the suspicious nature of the package a narcotics detection K-9 was asked to investigate. The K-9 alerted to the odor of a narcotic in the package.

Special Agents wrote a search warrant for the package and met with Postal Inspectors in Hoopa, who brought the package with them for delivery. At around 1:00 P.M. Qiday entered the Post Office and said she was there to pick up the package.

Qiday signed for the package and it was handed to her, at which time Special Agents detained her. A search of the package revealed one pound of methamphetamine.

This investigation is ongoing and future arrests are anticipated. Anyone with information related to this investigation or other narcotics related crimes are encouraged to call the Humboldt County Drug Task Force at 707-444-8095 or the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Tip Line at 707-268-2539.



  • LMAO!! Oh boy hoopa not happy. Keep getting rid of that shit!! I still can’t believe they would even attempt to do that,pretty stupid! WOW

    • Bust Local Meth Labs Now

      That’s good that the DTF was able to intercept this pound, but I’m still waiting for them to start busting and closing down our local meth labs. Don’t bother to tell me it’s all coming from the cartel. I know different!

      She is a mule, her complexion is way to nice to be a constant user.

    • The cartel makes me sick. 454 on the button, what about the weight of the bag chincers. Lol knome tumbout

  • Some of us remember when it was stupid to mail pot. I wonder what made it a suspicious package. Did some one write peace, love and dope on the package? Maybe, meth is best? I hope that they get 100 of pounds more before it gets distributed.

  • So, can I mail meth to someone and get them busted?

  • bad thing is she was played by some one bigger up the dope chain to pick up & mule the package home,,,she’ll go down as they dance away forgetting all about her,,,course in the real cartel world,,,,she or members of her family would have to pay for that pound regardless of the fact she got popped and it was confiscated,,,sick twisted world we live in kids

    • Your probably right, human lives are despensible in the criminal mind, addicts are easy prey..the story will come out eventually, hope no children get tangled in this web. 😞

  • I can only wonder, if 1lb was caught then how many got through? And how much heroin?

  • Are those beginning dreads n eye shawdow…. or just up for to many days. Lol

  • You see what that shit does to your hair….

  • The Hupas native American are going to go crazy without their dope.Its about frickin time DTF now you get her the prep to give up her supplier. common sence if you follow these simple steps ,and you will get to the head of the snake,and cut it clean off ,but bravo one pound less the street ,and ruin mpre lives .

      Wow! One long stream of unintelligible babble. Sadly, our public education system has failed you.

    How many junkies does a pound service?

    I know a pound of marijuana would service about 10 marijuana addicts for a month, how many speed freaks would this feed and for how long?

    A pound of marijuana sells for about $800, what is the price of this speed stuff?

  • Damn Amazon really does sell everything!

  • Capitalist pig

    Good job coppers

  • (almost) Everybody knows Fed-Ex is best.
