Humboldt County Drug Task Force press release:
On August 21, 2017 at about 9:45 A.M. Special Agents with the Humboldt County Drug Task Force served a search warrant at a residence in the 1300 block of Allard Street in the city of Eureka. The target of the investigation, 37 year old Nickolas Deremer was detained after appearing in court earlier that morning.
During the service of the search warrant Agents located Nickolas’ live in girlfriend, 28 year old Amber Younger in a bedroom they share. A search of that room revealed approximately ½ ounce of suspected heroin, digital scale, packaging material, pay and owe sheets and other items indicative of sales.
Nickolas was placed under arrest for possession of a narcotic for sale and maintaining a residence for the purposes of distributing narcotics. He was found to be in possession of approximately $5,000 which Agents believed to be proceeds from the illegal sales of narcotics. The money was seized pursuant to asset forfeiture laws.
Amber was placed under arrest for possession of a narcotic for sale, maintaining a residence for the purposes of distributing narcotics, and probation violation.
While Agents were on scene 39 year old Kevin Wangler arrived at the residence. Agents learned he had two felony warrants for his arrest and was taken into custody. All three subjects were transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility where they were booked and housed.
