On 11/5/2015 at about noon Agents of the Humboldt County Drug Task Force assisted by Deputies from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office attempted to serve a Humboldt County Superior Court search warrant on the 1500 block of Anna Sparks Way in McKinleyville. The warrant was to be served during a traffic stop, and authorized the search for a large quantity of methamphetamine for sale. Two uniformed Sheriff’s Deputies in clearly marked vehicles performed the traffic stop.
The subject of the warrant, Jesse Curtis Hiller, fled from the traffic stop at a high rate of speed. Hiller fled on School Rd. and then southbound on Highway 101 where Officers with the California Highway Patrol took over the pursuit. Hiller made numerous evasive maneuvers and reached speeds well in excess of 100mph before the pursuit was cancelled in the interests of public safety.
Later in the afternoon Agents served a search warrant at Hiller’s temporary residence in Loleta. Agents discovered at least seven pounds of processed marijuana packaged for sale, scales, packaging consistent with methamphetamine sales, and a loaded .357 caliber revolver. The revolver had been reported stolen in the burglary of Pacific Outfitters in Eureka in August.
A Be on the Lookout message has been issued for Jesse Curtis Hiller, date of birth 08/10/1986, and for his vehicle, a black 2010 Chrysler 300 with black custom wheels and chrome trim with the license plate of 7EEE835. The Drug Task Force asks that anybody with knowledge of the whereabouts of Hiller or the vehicle contact the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at 707-445-7251 or their local Police Department.
