The methamphetamine and Oxycodone pills that were found after HCDTF served several warrants.
The Humboldt County Drug Task Force seized one-fourth pound of methamphetamine and about 1,300 Oxycodone pills after serving several warrants in unincorporated areas of Eureka.
The warrants were in response to "a seizure by customs agents in Peru who intercepted multiple packages containing large
quantities of Oxycodone that were being shipped" to the Eureka
addresses where the warrants were served.
According to the release, agents located financial documents of the suspects allegedly wiring large amounts of money back to Peru and they were in possession of packaging materials showing they have received multiple packages from Peru in the past year.
Law enforcement arrested Major Neil Gutierrez Flores, 41 years old from Peru, and John Alberto Gutierrez Flores, 37 years old from Peru, for alleged possession of controlled substances for sale and possession of methamphetamine for sale.
