On March 9th, 2020, at approximately 3:30 p.m., special agents with the Humboldt County Drug Task Force (HCDTF) served a search warrant at a residence located in the 100 block of West Del Norte Street, Eureka.
Agents received new information the resident, Kevin Lee Haberman (age 41), is continuing to deal narcotics in Humboldt County. Agents are familiar with Haberman as he was recently arrested by the Humboldt County SWAT team on a variety of narcotics and weapons violations. Haberman posted bail on this previous arrest and was released from custody.
Upon arrival, Haberman was observed sitting in a parked car in front of the residence. Agents detained Haberman without incident and searched his person, vehicle, and residence pursuant to a search warrant.
