HUMBOLDT, Calif. — The Humboldt Drug Task Force and the Eureka Police Department raided two separate residences in the 300 block of West Del Norte Street early Thursday morning, to the elation of area residents who have long claimed the houses were an epicenter of drug activity.

EPD Sgt. Patrick O'Neill said the raids resulted in the arrests of nine suspects — seven adults and two juveniles — and the seizure of about one ounce of methamphetamine, as well as items consistent with sales and other paraphernalia.
