Humboldt County Drug Task Force press release:
On September 18, 2018, at approximately 2:00 p.m., Special Agents with the Humboldt County Drug Task Force, with the assistance of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team, served a search warrant at a residence located in the 2200 block of Walnut Avenue, McKinleyville. In addition to numerous complaints of suspected drug activity at this residence, agents previously received information that Dustin Dartanuan Craig (age 35) was involved in narcotics distribution, including the manufacturing and sales of Dimethyltryptamine (commonly referred to as “DMT”).
Upon arrival, agents observed Craig driving away from the residence in what was determined to be a stolen vehicle. Agents and SWAT members followed Craig to a business located in the 2600 block of Central Avenue, McKinleyville, where he was placed under arrest without incident. Agents went back to the residence on Walnut Avenue and observed multiple people running from Craig’s residence. Two of the subjects, later identified as Jason Kyle Jolley (age 41) and Chancellor Kenneth Seymore (age 19), were detained pending further investigation. It was later determined that Jolley, who is a previously convicted felon and is prohibited from possessing firearms, attempted to conceal two firearms in a nearby residence. These firearms were recovered and Jolley was charged with weapons violations. Agents also learned that Seymore has a felony warrant for his arrest and was subsequently taken into custody.
The above named subjects were booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on the following charges:
- Dustin Craig: Possession of a stolen vehicle and maintaining a residence for drug sales
- Jason Jolley: Felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a prohibited firearm, felon in possession of ammunition, and illegal gang activity
- Chancellor Seymore: No bail felony warrant
Suspected DMT was recovered from Craig’s residence and will undergo further analysis.
Anyone with information related to this investigation or other narcotics related crimes are encouraged to call the Humboldt County Drug Task Force at 707-444-8095 or the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Tip Line at 707-268-2539.
