On September 4th, 2018, Special Agents with the Humboldt County Drug Task Force, with the assistance of the Fortuna Police Department, served search warrants at two locations in Humboldt County. Agents had previously received information that William Henry Jeffers (age 23) and Jessica Renee Peters (age 36) were dealing narcotics in the Eureka and Fortuna areas.
At approximately 10:00 a.m., agents served a search warrant at a residence located within the 2300 block of Freshwater Road, Eureka. Agents contacted and detained Jeffers and Peters at this location. Agents located approximately 3 ounces of suspected heroin and small amount of suspected methamphetamine. In addition, agents located scales, packaging material, and a variety of illegally possessed medication.
Both subjects were placed under arrest for possession of a controlled substance for sales and subsequently transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility for booking.
Agents then served a search warrant at a residence located in the 100 block of Palmer Boulevard, Fortuna. Although this location was unoccupied, agents located an additional 2 ounces of suspected heroin and drug paraphernalia. Jeffers and Peters were also found to be in possession of a combined total of approximately $15,000 in U.S. currency. This money is believed to be the proceeds of illegal narcotics sales and will be held pending asset forfeiture proceedings .
