Camera Recovered; Search for Parolee Edward Vercoe Continues
On the afternoon of January 28, detectives from the Eureka Police Department’s Problem Oriented Policing Unit (POP)
responded to a neighborhood complaint in the 2500 block
of Union Street in Eureka.
The complaint alleged excessive foot and vehicle traffic coming from an apartment located in the alley.
Detectives contacted a female living in the apartment, who advised them one of the subjects living with her was Edward Charles Vercoe (Date of Birth: 12/28/69). Vercoe is in on active PRCS Parole and is subject to search and seizure at anytime.
During a subsequent search, detectives located ½ gram of heroin and a Sony HD video camera they believed was related to a weekend burglary of News Channel 3.
Employees from Channel 3 were contacted and responded to the scene where they positively identified the Sony camera and related cables. The employees from Channel 3 stated there are additional cameras and equipment outstanding.
Vercoe was not on scene at the time the search was conducted and is currently wanted for being in Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of Stolen Property.
Anyone with information regarding Vercoe’s whereabouts can contact the Eureka Police Department, at (707) 441-4060, or call the Problem Oriented Policing Unit at (707) 441-4373, EPD said.
