Meth and Firearm Arrest in Eureka

Written by  KMUD News
A Eureka police officer stopped to contact a pedestrian on Brennen near Pine Street at 6PM on July 25th.  The male subject, a parolee later identified as Caleb Fletcher, reportedly became nervous and uncooperative, suddenly throwing down his backpack and fleeing northbound on Pine Street. 
The officer gave chase and caught up to the suspect at Henderson and Pine Streets. Fletcher is said to have aggressively resisted, with the officer being assisted by a citizen who stopped at the scene.
Fletcher's backpack was recovered and reported to contain a loaded Desert Eagle handgun with the serial number removed, approximately 6 grams of a substance believed to be crystal meth, a digital scale and $280 in twenty dollar bills.
Fletcher was transported to the St Joseph ER where he was treated and released into police custody for minor injuries sustained in the apprehension.  The officer also received minor injuries but was not reported to have been admitted to a hospital.
Fletcher was booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on charges of:  
   *     Possession of a controlled substance for sale
   *     Felon in possession of a firearm
   *     Resisting arrest
   *     Parole violation
