Rio Dell Police and the DTF did it again on Pearl Harbor Day, hot on the heels of last week’s marijuana bust.

On December 7, at 8:00 in the morning, Humboldt County
Drug Task Force and the Rio Dell Police assisted the
California State Department of Justice Bureau of Narcotics
Enforcement with a search warrant at a residence located in
the 1000 block of Riverside Drive in Rio Dell, the HCSO reported.

Officers detained a subject, who lived at the residence and
identified as Nikolai Kaley Erickson, 37.

When officers searched the residence they located 279 individual one-pound bags of processed marijuana bud.  Additionally, another approximately 40 pounds of loose marijuana bud was located in the residence hidden inside of pickle barrels.

Officers seized $12,482 dollars in cash from the residence for possible asset forfeiture.

Mr. Erickson was arrested for possession of marijuana for sales and was transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility in Eureka.  His bail was set at $ 75,000 dollars.

At the same time that officers were serving a search warrant at Erickson’s residence in Rio Dell, Humboldt County Drug Task Force
Agents assisted California State Department of Justice Officers with a
search warrant at two parcels located off Bear Creek Road in Dinsmore,
which were owned by Erickson.

At the property in Dinsmore, officers located evidence of an outdoor marijuana growing operation. Officers detained 9 subjects who told officers they were hired by Erickson to help manicure the marijuana.

Officers seized over 377 pounds of dried marijuana bud from the Dinsmore property.  The nine subjects were identified and release from the scene, the HCSO said.

A street value of the marijuana seized in this investigation is over one million dollars, they noted.

This case is still under investigation by the State of
California Department of Justice/ Bureau of Narcotic
Enforcement.

Another bud bust?  700 pounds?  $1 million dollars?  Who buys all this weed?
