The following is a press release issued by the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office. The information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty:
On 01-31-2022 at 9:57 P.M., Mendocino County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a reported domestic argument at a location in the 1300 block of North State Street in Ukiah, California.
On arrival, Deputies knocked on the door and were met by Grover Hunter.
The Deputies inquired about the domestic argument and learned Hunter had been in an argument with his girlfriend, who was in the bathroom. As the Deputies were talking to Hunter, they observed a commercial quantity of Fentanyl and a usable amount of methamphetamine in plain view.
The Deputies waited for Hunter’s girlfriend to exit the bathroom and confirmed there had been no physical violence during the argument.
As the Deputies continued to talk to Hunter and his girlfriend they observed other items inside the room; which were indicative of drug sales, such as a digital scale. The Deputies detained Hunter and continued their investigation.
The Deputies located evidence and developed probable cause to believe Hunter possessed a commercial quantity of a narcotic/controlled substance for sale and possessed a controlled substance.
Hunter was arrested for 11351 HS (Felony Possession Narcotic/Controlled Substance For Sale) and 11377 HS (Misdemeanor Possession of Controlled Substance).
Hunter was booked into the Mendocino County Jail where he was to be held in lieu of $25,000.00 bail.
