A man out on parole on drug counts is back in trouble. Tuesday morning, officers with the Eureka Police Department’s Community Safety Enhancement Team (CSET) were conducting routine patrol in the greenbelt area of the 500 block of V Street, due to numerous complaints of trespassing, illegal camping, and other violations of law. A group of about six subjects was soon contacted.
One of the subjects was identified as Ronald William Knight (50 years old of Eureka). A records check of Knight revealed that he is on formal probation for possession for sales of controlled substance(s). One of his terms of probation is a search clause. A search of Knights person revealed approximately 4 grams of suspected methamphetamine (packaged in several small street sales amounts), packaging material, and a scale.
Knight was taken into custody and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility (HCCF) on fresh charges of Possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of sales and probation violation.
