On 07.03.13, Problem Oriented Policing (POP) detectives and patrol officers from the Eureka Police Department served a search warrant at the 1300 block of McDonald Street, in Eureka.

As a result of the investigation, Mark Burdick (age 45), was taken into custody for Possession of Methamphetamine for Sales. Burdick was transported and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility, however, due to jail overcrowding, he was cited and released.
