On March 5, 2022, at about 6:48 a.m., a Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputy on patrol on the 700 block of Casino Way in Blue Lake observed a driver passed out behind the wheel of a running vehicle parked at a gas pump.
The deputy conducted a welfare check on the male, who was later identified as 30-year-old Morgan Donald Wright. The deputy awoke Wright and determined him to possibly be under the influence of an unknown substance.
During a search of Wright and his vehicle, deputies located approximately 18.6 grams of Fentanyl, approximately 11.7 grams of Methamphetamine, items consistent with the sale of controlled substances, drug paraphernalia and $200 cash believed to be associated with the sale of the controlled substances.
Wright was arrested and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on charges of possession of a controlled substance for sales (HS 11351), transportation/sale of a narcotic controlled substance (HS 11352(a)), possession of a controlled substance (HS 11378), possession of a controlled substance paraphernalia (HS 11364(a)) and transportation/sale of a controlled substance (HS 11379(a)).
Anyone with information about this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at (707) 445-7251 or the Sheriff’s Office Crime Tip line at (707) 268-2539.
