Drug Task Force Arrests Two and Scoops Eight Pounds of Meth Last Night
The Humboldt County Drug Task Force snagged two men and eight pounds of methamphetamine in Carlotta yesterday evening after an investigation led to them obtaining search warrants for two locations and one vehicle, explained Lt. Brian Quenell.
Two men, Juan Carlos Barraza-Hidalgo and Ezequiel Martinez-Hernandez, were arrested after officers located eight pounds of methamphetamine in their vehicle. They were charged with possession of an illegal substance for sale.
The task force then served the search warrants on the two locations. “They found additional evidence of sales,” Quenell explained. The investigation is still ongoing but he promised more information by tomorrow.
