Around 5:15 p.m., the Humboldt County Drug Task Force pulled over a vehicle near the onramp to U.S. Highway 101 from the Miranda bridge.

According to Humboldt County Sheriff Sgt. Jesse Taylor, the vehicle contained about 5 pounds of heroin. Taylor responded to our request for information in an email reply, saying,

"I can confirm the Humboldt County Drug Task Force (HCDTF) served a search warrant on a vehicle stopped near the Miranda Bridge. HCDTF has been investigating a drug trafficking organization operating out of Bakersfield Ca. The driver was detained and found to be in possession of approximately 5 pounds of suspected heroin. We are trying to determine the driver's identity at this time. Additional information will be provided tomorrow via press release."
