Grover Beach man facing attempted murder charges

James Heinrichs

A Grover Beach man is facing charges of suspicion of attempted murder, according to a Pismo Beach Police Department press release.

James Heinrichs, 49, was arrested Saturday after a month-long investigation by officers. The investigation began when officers responded to a possible shots fired call at Motel 6 in Pismo Beach on Dec. 13. At the time officers responded, they were unable to locate any victims or witnesses.

Police say investigators continued looking into the matter and found evidence of a possible drug deal gone bad. Officers say they eventually located the alleged victim’s vehicle, which had a bullet hole in the windshield. However, the vehicle was then in Los Angeles.

During the investigation, police said, an arrest warrant and two search warrants were obtained and served, which resulted in the recovery of a firearm that is believed to have been used in the shooting.

Heinrichs was booked in San Luis Obispo County Jail and his bail was set at $500,000.
