They just keep on coming and going down.

On Tuesday, November 13, at about 8 in the morning, investigators with the Eureka Police Department’s Problem Oriented Policing (POP) Unit served a search warrant at a suspected marijuana sales house on the 1600 block of ‘R’ Street, Eureka.

The warrant was obtained after the POP Unit developed information the residents were involved in a for-profit marijuana cultivation operation, according to the EPD release.

Resident Kevin James Hulcy, age 30 of Eureka, was detained during a traffic stop away from the residence.  During a subsequent search of the residence, investigators located and seized approximately:

  • 24 pounds of processed marijuana bud packaged for sale in 1/2 pound and one pound bags
  • 5 firearms,
  • $38,706.00 cash (suspected marijuana sales proceeds)
  • And other evidence indicative of illegal, commercial marijuana cultivation.

Investigators also found evidence of an earlier indoor marijuana grow in a detached garage behind the residence.

Hulcy was arrested and transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility where he was booked for possession of marijuana for sale and maintaining a space for unlawfully manufacturing, storing, or distributing a controlled substance.

Similar charges are expected to be requested against a female resident (Hulcy’s girlfriend) who was not present at the time the search warrant was served.

During the course of this investigation, POP investigators also procured evidence identifying the location of a second (rural) property in the Dinsmore area associated with the suspects.  This information was relayed to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office’s Community Response Unit.

That afternoon, Deputies, assisted by agents with the Humboldt County Drug Task Force and a POP investigator, executed a search warrant at the property.  A large amount of processed marijuana was located there.

Anyone with information concerning suspected drug activity occurring in the City of Eureka is encouraged to call the Problem Oriented Policing Unit at (707) 441-4373 or the Humboldt County Drug Task Force at (707) 444-8095.

Anyone with information for the Sheriffs Office regarding criminal activity, including drug activity, is encouraged to call the Sheriffs Office at 707-445-7251 or the Sheriffs Office Crime Tip line 707-268-2539.

Not the best location for a grow-op and/or sales.  Word has it many officers with different agencies live in that hood, not to mention nosy neighbors with eagle eyes and discerning noses.

There’s been spirited discussion on Facebook about the multitude of raids targeting marijuana by law enforcement.  Some feel too many busts and resources are devoted to pot cultivation– when meth should be the primary focus as the more dangerous and prevalent life-destroying drug in our community.
