A Humboldt County Deputy Sheriff arrested a Crescent City woman last night after finding crystal methamphetamine in the car she was driving. Valorie Annette Larkins, 30, was wanted by the Eureka Police Department in connection with an active burglary case they were investigating. At about 8:00 pm yesterday evening, Deputy Marvin Kirkpatrick recognized Larkins as she was driving on W. Sonoma Street. Deputy Kirkpatrick stopped the vehicle and arrested Larkins for Eureka Police Department’s burglary case. After placing Larkins under arrest, Deputy Kirkpatrick found her to be in possession of crystal methamphetamine, a digital scale, other items associated with the sale of a controlled substance. She also had several stolen checks, credit cards, and a fraudulent driver’s license.
Larkins was transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility where she was booked on charges from both the Eureka Police Department’s burglary investigation and the Sheriff’s Office’s drug arrest. Eureka PD’s charges include six counts of burglary and six counts of fraudulent use of a credit card. From the Sheriff’s Office’s case, Larkin was booked for possession of a controlled substance, the transport/sale of a controlled substance, and possession an illegal weapon. Her bail for both cases has been set at $200,000. Additionally, at the time of last night’s arrest, Larkin was out of jail on bail bond stemming from a May arrest by the Fortuna Police Department. In that case, Larkin faces charges of forgery, possession of stolen property, and possession of a controlled substance.
