Three Arrested In Arcata On Drug Charges

 

Final suspect found locked inside Valley West motel room

Three local men were popped in quick succession by the Arcata Police Department starting on Christmas Day for various drug charges.

On Sunday at about 11:20 p.m., APD personnel contacted, then arrested Arcata resident James Bauer, 35, on felony parole violation.

This arrest first led to the detention of Bauer’s associate, 21-year-old Jarame Johnson of McKinleyville; these contacts also led to a room at a motel on Valley West Boulevard, where APD suspected Bauer and two associates were renting a room where drug sales were underway.

What followed was a coordinated strike by APD, the Parole Office in Eureka and the California Department of Corrections against the motel room in question.

When APD arrived, however, the room was locked from within, and the occupant did not cooperate when the cops announced their presence and asked him to open the door.  APD proceeded to instruct motel staff to assist them to force the door open, and upon entry, public servants arrested 22-year-old Michael Loughry of McKinleyville without further incident.

A thorough search of the room revealed several pounds of processed cannabis, along with packaging and materials alleged to be consistent with marijuana sales, according to a press statement by APD sergeant Dave Brown.

An illegal weapon and an unstated amount of meth were also found, and all three men were arrested and booked into Humboldt County jail on charges of conspiracy, possession of marijuana for sale and possession of methamphetamine.

Mr. Bauer was also booked on the illegal weapon possession charge; as he was an escaped parolee, he will n0t be eligible for bail.

    You left out the arrest of two transients for public oral sex in the parking lot of Chans, on the corner of Somoa, and H st. It was not pretty, and it sucked to have to explain what was going on to my two year old daughter that pointed it out to her mom and me.
    I turned in the photos and video to the police once they showed up.
