Unauthorized Vicodin Giveaway In Garberville

A man trying to give away Vicodin in downtown Garberville landed himself in jail yesterday afternoon after annoying several local residents.

At about 1:30 p.m. Monday, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office heard from a Garberville woman that a man had just approached her, opened a pill bottle and tried to give her Vicodin. After she declined, he then allegedly walked away, urinated in the public hallway in front of several business entrances and made verbal threats towards her.

Responding to the scene near the 700 block of Redwood Drive, deputies found the man pounding on the door of a nearby residence. As the cops approached, the door opened and the suspect entered the residence, closing the door behind him. When the deputy knocked on the door, a teenage male opened it and said he had no idea who the suspect was, as the man had simply walked inside the residence when the door was opened.

According to lieutenant Steve Knight in a release, the deputy entered the home to find the suspect yelling and shouting in the living room of the residence. After taking him into custody, an adult female told the cops that she also didn’t know the man and did not understand why he would enter her home other than to escape the deputy.

Identified as 56-year-old Robert Scott Cree of Garberville, the suspect was arrested for sales or offering of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of a prescribed drug and public intoxication — upon their search, deputies found Vicodin and another prescription drug in his possession. Cree was transported to county jail and held on $50,000 bail.

    He’s kind of like the Easter Bunny, but with drugs instead of colored eggs. I guess you can’t even give Vicodin away these days, what with all the medical marijuana around.
