EUREKA- Hundreds of precious gems and stones were discovered inside a Eureka hotel.

Just after 5 on Wednesday night, officers with the Eureka Police Department responded to the 1900 block of 4th street to conduct a probation search of a room. It was then authorities say they found multiple boxes, each with hundreds of gems and stones. No subjects on the scene claimed ownership or any knowledge of the gems, so EPD officers collected them. If you have information, you’re asked to call the Eureka Police Department at (707) 441-4060.
