Local men arrested for drugs at Hopland casino

HOPLAND – Two local men were arrested over the weekend when they were found in possession of methamphetamine at a local casino.


A report from the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office explained that Elliott Brackett, 51, of Upper Lake and John W. Feeney, 45, of Lakeport were arrested Saturday night at Hopland Sho-Kah-Wa Casino.


Mendocino County Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to Sho-Kah-Wa just after midnight Saturday on a report that tribal police had detained two subjects possessing a controlled substance, the report stated.


Tribal police told deputies arriving at the scene that a female subject – who had left the casino to use the phone – told them she had just purchased suspected methamphetamine from the men, who were sitting in the casino's parking lot, according to the report.


The woman turned over the drugs to tribal police, the report noted, saying she had paid $40 for the substance.


Checking the parking lot, tribal police located Brackett and Feeney, detained them and called the sheriff's office, the report stated.


Deputies interviewed the suspects, who denied any wrong doing and requested to speak to an attorney, according to the sheriff's office.


Both men were arrested for sales of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and later transported and booked into the Mendocino County Jail, with bail for each set at $15,000, according to the report.
