Yeah, Probably Not The Best Time To Sling Nugs On The Street – April 19, 2011
DOWNTOWN – On Monday April 18, Officers from the Arcata Police Department Special Services Unit and Agents from the Humboldt County Drug Task Force, teamed to conduct an undercover drug sting on and around the Arcata Plaza.
The operation was in response to concerns from downtown Arcata merchants and patrons regarding illegal drug sales activity.
APD Officers and DTF Agents working in “plain clothes” walked the
Downtown Arcata area and allegedly purchased drugs from a number of subjects. Those individuals were then taken into custody by uniformed officers.
The following subjects were arrested during the course of the operation and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on the listed charges:
