The Eureka Police Department is unveiling a new policing strategy today: The “Eureka’s Most Wanted” poster. The not-too-difficult-to-understand concept is explained in the press release below:
The Eureka Police Department understands theft related crimes are a genuine concern to the citizens of our community. Though we are taking positive steps to improve this problem, Eureka currently has one of the highest per-capita property crime rates in California for a city our size.
Experience shows that when people commit property crimes, they continue to offend until apprehended. For this reason, the Eureka Police Department will be publishing our “Eureka’s Most Wanted” poster. The wanted individuals depicted on this list are presently being sought by EPD for theft related offenses. EPD is reaching out to the community for their help in locating these suspects.
Anyone encountering the listed subjects should not attempt to contact or apprehend them, but rather call the Eureka Police Department immediately at (707) 441-4044 or (707) 441-4060. The “Most Wanted” list will be updated on an ongoing basis. However, all warrants must first be verified prior to arrest as their status is subject to change.
