Location: Eureka


On 03-06-2012, approximately 9:30 a.m. a deputy sheriff working undercover assigned to the Humboldt County Sheriffs Office Community Response Unit met with two suspects at the corner of F street and Harris Street, Eureka. The deputy was meeting with the two suspects after one of the suspects, Jason Cecil Bacon, 41 years old from Eureka, attempted to buy a motorcycle using marijuana. Jason called an online ad for a used motorcycle that was for sale and offered to buy the motorcycle. Jason asked the seller, who turned out to be a non-sworn employee of the Humboldt County Sheriffs Office, if the employee would accept $8,000.00 worth of marijuana in exchange for the motorcycle. The seller turned the case over to the Sheriff’s Office Community response Unit who set up an exchange.
