Indoor grow discovered on 3rd Street

Written by
According to a Eureka Police Department News Release, dated April 27, 2011:
On 4/26/11, at about 2:20 PM, Detectives with the Eureka Police Department’s Problem Oriented Policing Unit (POP) went to a residence on the 1800 block of 3rd Street, Eureka, to follow up on neighborhood complaints concerning suspected drug and gang related activity there.  Detectives contacted the primary resident and another male outside.  While speaking with the subjects, detectives smelled a strong odor of growing marijuana emanating from a detached second residence located behind the main house.  Upon further investigation, Detectives discovered a large indoor marijuana growing operation inside the two-story structure (a converted garage and apartments).  The grow had recently been harvested and approximately 150-200 plants were found hanging in a drying room.  An additional 258 growing marijuana plants in pots were found inside a second upstairs nursery.  These plants were in various stages of growth ranging from small clones to mature budding plants.  

Officials with the City of Eureka’s Community Development and Building Departments responded to the scene.  Numerous building code and electrical violations were found.  Additionally, the grow was determined to be far outside the provisions of Eureka’s Medical Cannabis Ordinance.  Detectives also uncovered evidence the grow was intended for commercial use (for profit) and may involve several individuals.  Residents were only able to produce a single expired medical marijuana recommendation (the primary suspect is also unemployed).  A PG&E technician was called to the scene and the electric meter to the residence was pulled due to the existence significant electrical/fire hazards.  

The investigation is continuing and an illegal marijuana cultivation case (felony) is expected to be submitted to the District Attorney’s Office for review for prosecution.

According to a Eureka Police Department press release, dated April 5, 2011:
On 4/05/11, at about 10:00 AM, Detectives with the Eureka Police Department’s Problem Oriented Policing Unit (POP) and Criminal Investigation Services served a search warrant at a residence on the 3700 block of H Street, Eureka.  The warrant was in response to neighborhood complaints concerning a suspected grow house there. After announcing their presence and purpose and receiving no response, detectives forced a back door open and entered the residence.  Detectives encountered and detained one male inside, Jesse Ichiro Breckels (28 of Eureka).  During a subsequent search of the residence, detectives located and seized approximately 710 marijuana plants in various stages of growth, scales and packaging materials, 40 pounds of processed marijuana, and approximately 180 pounds of green drying marijuana.   

An examination of the house revealed it was being used solely for the purpose of marijuana cultivation and not for residential living.  Several false walls/rooms had been built inside for this purpose.  Personnel from the City of Eureka’s Community Improvement Team (CIT) accompanied detectives, including members of the Eureka Fire Department, Building Department, and Community Development Department.  An inspection of the residence uncovered numerous building, electrical, fire, and Eureka Municipal Code violations.  The power meter was subsequently pulled due to illegal wiring creating an electrical/fire hazard.  The grow was also way outside the provisions of Eureka’s new Medical Marijuana Ordinance.  

Additionally, 4 pitbull dogs being raised in small kennels in the backyard were removed and taken to the Humboldt County Animal Shelter. Breckels was arrested and transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility where he was booked for possession and cultivation of marijuana for sale.

According to the KMUD News Department:
On March 13th 2011, the Arcata Police Department received a report of a deceased subject in Janes Creek near the 1700 block of 11th St. Officers located a deceased male partially submerged in Janes Creek. With the assistance of the Arcata Fire Department the body was recovered from the creek. Arcata Police Department Detectives and the Humboldt County Coroners Office launched a joint investigation and positively identified the subject as Jeremiah Holland Jones, age 22 of Eureka. Jones had been reported to the Humboldt County Sheriff's Department as a missing person in mid-February of this year.

Jones was last seen in Arcata on February 12th. Jones was in a vehicle near Janes Creek reportedly driving recklessly. Apparently, upon seeing a patrol car in the area, Jones and another occupant abandoned the vehicle in the roadway and fled on foot. The other occupant, Ian Henry, 21 of McKinleyville, was located nearby and arrested for public intoxication. A search of the area was conducted, but Jones was not found. It is believed that after fleeing, Jones tried to hide in Janes Creek where he drowned. 
According to the KMUD News Department:
On March 14th and 15th 2011, in response to neighbor complaints, officers from the Arcata Police Department's Special Services Unit served two search warrants in residential neighborhoods in Arcata. Both search warrants were served on single family residences where illegal marijuana cultivation operations were suspected to be taking place. The first search warrant was served on the evening of March 14th in the 400 block of California Ave. Officers discovered a large scale indoor marijuana cultivation operation. Nearly 700 marijuana plants and more than 2 pounds of processed marijuana, along with an array of cultivation equipment, was seized. David Semple Johnson, age 36, of Arcata was arrested and booked into the Humboldt County Jail for possession of marijuana for sale, operating a house for the manufacture of drugs, cultivation of marijuana, transportation of marijuana, possesion of concentrated canabis and possesion of psilocybin mushrooms.

The second search warrant was served at a residence in the 3200 block of Zelia Ct. Officers located and inspected a marijuana growing operation located inside the residence. It was determined the growing operation was in compliance with proposition 215 guidlines. No arrests were made and no property was seized. City of Arcata building inspectors discovered numerous building code violations at both residences, necessitating the immediate disconnection of electrical service.

If you suspect illegal drug activity in your neighborhood, please contact the Arcata Police Departmet Special Services Unit at (707)-822-2428
