On Wednesday June 12th, a Fortuna detective recovered 2 pounds of methamphetamine during a routine traffic stop on Riverwalk Drive in Fortuna.

While on patrol, Detective Brian Taylor observed the driver of a Honda Accord make a traffic violation.  Upon making initial contact with the driver, he noticed the smell of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle.

While he was speaking with the driver and passenger, an investigator from the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office Canine Unit was in the immediate area for another assignment.  Because the officer smelled marijuana during the traffic stop, the canine was requested and immediately signaled that it sensed the presence of illegal narcotics.

During a subsequent search two packages were located in a duffle bag in the back seat area of the car which was determined to contain methamphetamine.

The driver, 18 year old, Angelica Carrillo Villalobos of Fortuna was interviewed and released at the scene.

Her passenger, 23 year old, Miguel Carrillo Villalobos of Fortuna was arrested for Transportation for Sale of a Controlled Substance; HS Code 11379 (a), which is a felony.  He was transported and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility.

The two current Fortuna Police Department Detective positions are fully funded by the Measure E tax approved by Fortuna voters in November 2016.
