From Del Norte County Sheriff’s Office – April 28, 2023
On 4-25-23 at approximately 4pm, the Del Norte County Sherriff’s Office executed a search warrant at 1030 K st in Crescent City.
Roxanne Hamilton was arrested at 1030 K st by DNSO deputies on 4-19-23. It was discovered by Correctional staff that Hamilton had smuggled over an ounce of Fentanyl into the jail.
The DNSO has been receiving multiple complaints from residents in the area regarding suspicious activity in the area of 1030 K st.
The Fentanyl recovered by Correctional staff as well as the complaints made by the community ultimately aided in obtaining the search warrant.
During the execution of the search warrant four subjects were detained and identified for further investigation.
Currently deputies are still completing their reports as to the findings of evidence at 1030 K st.
Del Norte County Code Enforcement and the District Attorney’s office are working in conjunction with us on this case.
Roxanne Hamilton is currently being housed at the Del Norte County Jail under Health and Safety code sections 11350: possession for sale and 11352: transportation of narcotics for sale as well as penal code section 4573: bringing a controlled substance into a Correctional facility.
A message from Sheriff Scott: The teamwork involved between our DNSO Deputies and Correctional Staff to curtail the Fentanyl epidemic happening in our community continues to be a top priority. Great job to the members or the DNSO and the District Attorney’s Office that worked together on this case!
