“During the month of February 2022, the Placer County Special Investigation Unit (PSIU) began working with the Auburn Police Department (APD) in regards to information concerning a subject selling narcotics in the Auburn area. PSIU Task Force Agents began investigating the information and were able to make online contact with the suspected drug dealer.
On May 3rd, 2022, PSIU conducted an undercover operation within the city limits of Auburn. As part of the investigation, Task Force Agents contacted Trey Curtis, 21 years of age, who allegedly agreed to sell an undercover agent a half pound of Psilocybin, commonly referred to as “shrooms”. Psilocybin is a hallucinogenic narcotic.
Upon delivery of the drugs, CURTIS was arrested by PSIU Task Force Agents for two felony charges, 11378 H&S (Possession of Narcotics for Sales) and 11379 H&S (Transportation/Sales of Narcotics). Curtis was booked into the Placer County Jail. CURTIS’s bail was set at $100,000.
The Placer Special Investigation Unit is a narcotics and probation task force consisting of Task Force Agents from Auburn PD, Roseville PD, Rocklin PD, Placer County Sheriff’s Office, Placer County Probation and led by a Special Agent Supervisor from the California Department of Justice. The task force receives administrative support from the California National Guard Counter-Drug Unit and the Placer District Attorney’s Office.”
