On the morning of December 25, 2021, the Eureka Police Department (EPD) received information that Eureka residents, 33-year-old Brandon Haselip and 31-year-old Michelle McDaniel had active arrest warrants for committing armed robbery in Mendocino County.


At about 6:40 p.m., EPD Officers located Haselip and McDaniel in a parked vehicle near the 3200 block of High Street in Eureka. McDaniel was taken into custody without incident. Haselip escaped and fled on foot into a shed to the rear of a nearby residence. Haselip voluntarily exited the shed and was taken into custody after EPD and Humboldt County Sheriff Deputies set up a perimeter.


During the investigation, it was discovered that Haselip and McDaniel had been residing in the shed on High Street. Due to both subjects being on various forms of probation, a search of the shed was conducted, resulting in the seizure of the following items:


            Approximately 2.4 ounces of Fentanyl

            Approximately 1.7 grams of Cocaine

            Multiple Percocet and benzodiazepines pills

            Packaging material and digital scales commonly used for drug sales

            Stolen property associated with the recent robbery in Mendocino County


Haselip and McDaniel were transported and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility for the Mendocino warrants. Haselip was also booked for fresh charges of possession of controlled substances for sales and probation violation.
