The Humboldt County Drug Task Force (HCDTF) arrested two Eureka residents Tuesday after a search warrant yielded heroin packaged for sales and drug paraphernalia, plus cash believed to be from narcotics sales, according to officials.
On Sept. 11 at 11:30 a.m., special agents served a search warrant at a home on the 900 block of Dowler Drive in Eureka. Agents had previously received information that two people who lived there were involved in narcotics sales.
Upon arrival at the home, 38-year-old Matthew Taylor Sigler and 39-year-old Kelly Marie Sigler were arrested without incident. the HCDTF reported.
Agents searched the home and found 17 grams of suspected heroin which was individually packaged for sales, digital scales, drug paraphernalia and other packaging material. Agents also seized approximately $4,000 in cash believed to be the proceeds of illegal narcotics sales. This currency will be held pending asset forfeiture proceedings.
Matthew Sigler and Kelly Sigler were subsequently transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility where they were booked for possession of a controlled substance for sales, according to the HCDTF.
