  • Great work!

  • You know what F this. Meth and gun in the waistband. Should be a special prison they immediately ship them off to designated for drug and crime offenses

  • groba dude osnt trustafarian

    Cierra, Cierra, Cierra, how many times will you be arrested in the company of a druggie loser?

    Tired of seeing your bruised face on here, girl…

    Get. Your. Shit. Together.

    Go to rehab. Get therapy. Don’t let a man hurt you! Ever!

  • They might have been housed over night, but they will,be released.

  • Cierra,please, you are worthy of much better. Fuck the chumps, help yourself.

  • Stupid meth. Pray for your children and search their bags :(:(:(:( God help us.

  • Being addicted to a drug is something I can understand and agree that help and rehab is a possibility; BUT…..in possession of a gun in your waistband, which most often is stolen or illegal, is a ‘choice’ you make which should carry a harsh sentence with NO bail. These guys should never be allowed back out in public. The only way this will get better is to make people afraid of getting caught, which is accomplished by making and enforcing strict consequences. This has gone on way too long!!

  • It’s pretty amazing that this guy and girl were just in the news for the same thing about 2 months ago correct? You can’t even buy a gun with a marijuana card but this guy continually gets caught with a gun and meth. The system here is like a cat playing with a mouse, let him run for a second then snag him back up. Glad your keeping the streets unsafe by letting these wack jobs run around. It’s safe to say carrying a gun in eureka to protect ourselves from tweakers is about as bad a crime as stealing a candy bar so why not just risk it.

  • Yikes, those look like track marks and needle bruising on her neckage.

  • They need to shut down all these sleazy hotels on Broadway/101/4th/5th streets. When is enough going to be enough.
