A special unit of the Redding Police arrested an alleged heroin dealer at a home in the downtown area of Redding Wednesday evening.
Redding’s Neighborhood Police Unit served a search warrant at a home on the 11000 block of Erickson Way after witnesses said the resident, Stanley Williams, 35, had been selling quantities of heroin to individuals in downtown Redding.
Although Williams wasn’t home at the time, investigators found quantities of heroin, methamphetamine, more than eight pounds of marijuana and cash money in the home.
The neighborhood unit located the suspect later that afternoon. Williams was arrested and booked at Shasta County jail for sales of heroin, sales of methamphetamine, sales of marijuana, and maintaining a residence for drug use and sales.
Additional charges are being sought from the Shasta County District Attorney for child endangerment due to a young child residing in the residence part time.
