The Humboldt County Drug Task Force (DTF) served warrants today around the town of Hoopa.

Lt. Brian Quenell of the DTF clarified an earlier report and said, “We were serving two search warrants at three locations today.” Besides the one in Hostler Field housing, he said they also served one in Upper Campbell Field Housing and off just of Hwy 96 near Hoopa.

Two people were cited and released, Quenell said. Mike McCovey was arrested for being in possession of a controlled substance and a felon in possession of ammunition.

“We were being assisted by the US Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management and officers from the Department of Justice.

  • Ahhh, the lovely mccovey family up to their old tricks. scumbags!

    • Ah the lovely pt family back to their old tricks. Oh wait a minute not all pt family members are scumbags. Nor all of the McCovey family. Some are lawyers, educators and normal middle class. So Mr pt do not make generalizations, it makes you sound very Trump-like.

    • Not cool my Grandsons a McCovey😡

  • >”Two people were cited and released, Quenell said. Mike McCovey was arrested for being in possession of a controlled substance and a felon in possession of ammunition.”

    They just ‘cite’ you and ‘release’ when you are a felon with guns/dope ?????
    Hopefully that ain’t true.

  • They honestly don’t care how we have to live up here (in Hoopa). Truth is most residents live a good life, work, don’t do drugs & want a safe community. These losers are holding us hostage and killing our community. I’m a community organizer and am about to leave and throw in the towel.

    Oh and it would be nice if the Hoopa people don’t defend these douche bag drug dealers. Sick of it.

    • I also reside in the valley and 100% agree with everything you said. It’s time to clean this place up..

    • It’s a shame, but definitely not exclusive to the valley. It just seems to get extra attention when it’s in the valley

  • Natasha Cottier

    So the “Down To Fucks” served a warrant huh? Neat.

  • Who’s on first? Seeing that we did not elect the highest county official (shameful of us), and he wasn’t sworn into office, it seems that there’s no chain-of-command in place. An elected County Sheriff is someone the people delegate power to, to express our power. He, or she, is the Posse Comitatus “Power of the County,” and, therefore, has been delegated the power to draw a line in the sand and tell both Fed and State to go pound sand.

    It looks like we have many standing armies, U.S. Dept. of Forestry, BLM and DOJ, Not of the land jurisdiction.

    • Central Hum Co, did you put your name in to run for Sheriff in June? No….that’s what I thought. Nobody else ran for Sheriff except Honsal who is doing a good job. Go sit down and shut up along with the rest of the complain and non action takers. Your comment is baseless and has no value.
