          LEADER IN DRUG TRAFFICKING RING SOUGHT AFTER BUST NETS MONEY
                                            and HEROIN, Says Humboldt Drug Task Force

To date, HCDTF has confiscated 27.36 pounds of methamphetamine, 34.57 pounds of heroin, and 3.06 pounds of cocaine. Some of these stats are based upon investigations involving these fugitives.

By: Kym Kemp / First Chapter from September:

This is a press release from the Humboldt County Drug Task Force. The information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty:

After a several month-long investigation, the Humboldt County Drug Task Force (HCDTF) has identified Rodrigo Moreno Rios (aka “Shorty”) as one of the primary leaders in a Drug Trafficking Organization (DTO) in the Eel River Valley.  Moreno Rios is believed to employ multiple individuals who assist in the delivery of heroin to Humboldt County communities.

On September 13, 2018, at approximately 9:45 a.m., HCDTF Special Agents, with the assistance of the California Highway Patrol, Fortuna Police Department, and Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, served six search warrants at the following residences:

3100 block of Smith Lane, Fortuna                     
3200 block of Smith Lane, Fortuna
1900 block of South Second Avenue, Fortuna
2600 block of Boone Street, Fortuna
1500 block of Ronald Avenue, Fortuna
Private road, Niles Lane, Loleta

These search warrants were related to properties frequented or occupied by Rios and members of the DTO. In addition to the search warrants, Ramey Warrants were obtained on the following individuals: Rodrigo Moreno Rios (age 40), Ubaldo Mendez-Carino (age 45), Arturo Ruiz-Anguiano (age 19), and Cesar Cabrera-Barragan (age 37).

As a result of the investigation, agents seized approximately ¾ of a pound of suspected heroin and over $40,000 in U.S. currency. This currency is believed to be the proceeds of illegal narcotics sales and will be held pending asset forfeiture proceedings.

During the serving of the search warrants, Mendez-Carino, Ruiz-Anguiano, and Cabrera-Barragan were contacted and arrested on their outstanding Ramey Warrants. The charges on these warrants include conspiracy to transport and possess controlled substances for sales. These subjects were subsequently transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility where they were booked on their outstanding warrants. Agents were unable to locate Rios and he remains a fugitive at large.

Anyone with information related to this investigation, or know the current whereabouts of Rodrigo Moreno Rios, please call the Humboldt County Drug Task Force at 707-444-8095 or the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Tip Line at 707-268-2539.

PREVIOUS Chapters:

"Shorty" was not only arrested, served time in prison AND deported in 2007 but came back into the country from Mexico and managed to repeat the procedure. 

On 09/25/13 detectives with the Eureka Police Department’s Problem Oriented Policing Unit (POP), contacted "Shorty", Rodrigo Moreno Rios (37) during a traffic stop in the 1600 block of Highland Avenue, in Eureka.

Rios was detained at the scene based on a search warrant the detectives had obtained, prior to the traffic stop.

As a result of their investigation, the detectives located approximately 17 grams of heroin.

Rios was taken into custody and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility for Driving While Unlicensed and Possession of Heroin for Sales.

Rios, who is a previously deported felon, was arrested in 2007 for Driving While Unlicensed, Possession of Heroin for sales, and Transportation of Heroin. As a result of that arrest, Rios was sent to prison then deported AGAIN.

*Anyone with information concerning suspected drug activity, or other nuisances occurring in the City of Eureka is encouraged to call the Problem Oriented Policing Unit at (707) 441-4373.

NOTE: SEE my previous posts about hard narcotics busts in Humboldt County HERE
Unfortunately, I have been unable to find out these mens States of Origin; since "Shorty" has been arrested and deported several times I do believe it is safe to assume they may all be Undocumented.
My Previous Post named the arrested suspect from SINALOA

  2. Good job and good luck, it sounds like EPD hasn't followed the general trend of letting the dope dealers slide while focusing on the users.
    Be awake Humbolt residents if/when the busts quiet down and business continues quietly. I hope i am wrong, but where i'm at theres very few busts and a hell of a lot of dope, and yet cops are everywhere!

  10. Thanks Yaqui: I used Google Earth to explore the addresses mentioned in the article.... beautiful country that seems ideal for illicit narcotics operations of all kinds. Doubtless, the criminals posed as no threat nice laborers just "seeking a better life." I noted the laughable low bail amounts on the individuals and the fact that some characters had priors of deportations. Frustrating!

    1. Just “seeking a better life?” Really, by making illicit substances available for consumption? I’d like to do a few things too but they’re illegal. Stupid argument.

  12. Another contribution to our prison population (we have the world's highest) and the profit of the prison industry.

    1. Would not call it contribution. Rather a profitable business practice by herding many into an idle world.
      Added with the sentencing guidelines for many given which do not merit nor fit the crime.
      Maybe if the inmates were given a second chance at life then maybe this like many would not repeat itself again.
      Not condoning this behavior. Rather, emphasize the importance for all Americans who have criminal records are not being discriminated in the workplace. This continuous treatment towards ex-felons has contributed to a percentage of Americas problems.

      Opportunities are slim to none to land a decent paid job for felons.
      Minimum wage don't cut it anywhere with the high cost of living.

      Ask yourself if you have a family of 4 and a minimum paying job? Will check after taxes suffice?
      You do what's necessary because family will always come first.

      Just pointing out facts of a broken system.

    2. It's simple, follow the law or go to jail. Ya'll making excuses for these criminals. Which one is your daddy?

  16. Did you cruise around the hills to see the what I call Mtn Top Removal MJ grows sites ? Mind boggling.......most of those are “ green rushers” who tried to get in on the last blast before regulation and legalization, not old school mom and pops. Some of them are supposedly Bulgarian Mafia grows ! There are also Huge presence of Hmong. But it is the Mexicanos bring in the hard stuff mostly. When I first saw “ Shorty’s “ mug shot a few months ago I put him on the list of things to follow up on........hopefully, I can find out what state these bad boys are from. My guess is Sinaloa.

  17. All this fuss and tax money spent for only 60 + plus lmaoooo dumbass cops feel mighty and tough too. While they were concentrated on 60 pounds 1 ton of cocaine and fentanyl passes through. That’s how it works, there’s is way too much demand and supply for the government to win this “war” lol I’m not condoning this at all but I hate then news outlets says “ cleaning up the streets” lmao yeah right. Drugs are more potent and cheaper than ever! GOVERNMENt / CIA is the biggest DTO ever, change my mind.

  20. Ain't no real heroin addict that wants fentanyl. It's a cheap knock off you gotta do every hour or three. It kills and doesn't discriminate. The traffickers in that shit are clever demon's.
