Heroin Bust On The Bus

Eureka Police Department Press Release

On 6/09/11, at around 11:50 AM, Investigators with the Eureka Police Department’s Problem Oriented Policing Unit were conducting surveillance on an apartment on the 1300 block of 6th Street, Eureka. POP had obtained a search warrant for the apartment after receiving complaints and developing information the residents there were dealing heroin.

The suspects were observed leaving the apartment and boarding a Eureka Transit bus, which then left traveling westbound on 6th Street. POP Detectives stopped and boarded the bus after it stopped to pick up passengers at 6th and L Streets. The suspects, 59-year-old Danny Herring of Eureka and a 72-year-old female, were detained and escorted off the bus.

Detectives subsequently searched the apartment and located approximately 1/2 ounce of tar heroin (including 55 individual bindles packaged for sale), numerous hypodermic syringes, drug packaging materials, and illegally possessed prescription pills including Roxicet (a controlled narcotic analgesic).

While detectives were still conducting their investigation, the apartment’s phone rang. A detective spoke with a male who asked to meet with Herring behind a nearby gas station on the 1300 block of 5th Street to purchase heroin from him.

Herring admitted to being an addict himself and to selling heroin. He was arrested and transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility where he was booked for possession of heroin for sale, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of hypodermic syringes.

The 72-year-old female was determined not to be directly involved in Herring’s heroin sales. She was released at the scene.
