A couple were arrested on the westside yesterday as the Eureka Police Department’s Problem Oriented Policing unit continues to hunt down drug houses.

McElroy and Stogner

At about 2:22 p.m. on Wednesday, EPD investigators executed a search warrant at a residence on the 2600 block of Union Street — one which was obtained after local residents informed the POP unit that heroin was for sale at the property.

The residents, Derick Johnathan McElroy and Ashley Rose Stogner, both 22 years old, were arrested and transported to county jail on charges of possession of heroin for sale and possession of stolen property.

The item in question was a .40 caliber Springfield Armory XD semi-automatic handgun with ammunition; it was reported stolen during a recent residential burglary elsewhere in the city, according to a statement by EPD sergeant Steve Watson. Investigators also seized a half-ounce of tar heroin, over $4,700 in cash, digital gram scales and drug sales packaging materials.

Anyone with information concerning suspected drug sales activity occurring in Eureka is asked to call the POP unit at (707) 441-4373.
