Precious gems and stones found

The following is from the Eureka Police Department: 

On Wednesday at approximately 5:06 p.m., officers responded to a hotel on the 1900 block of 4th St. and conducted a probation search of a hotel room. Officers located several boxes, each of which contained several hundred individual precious gems and stones.

None of the subjects on scene claimed ownership of the stones or any knowledge about them. For that reason, officers collected the items for safekeeping. If you have more information on the ownership of these gems please contact the Eureka Police Department (707)441-4060 regarding case# 3C14-3963.
