On Thursday, August 7th, 2014 at approximately 4:18 P.M., Redding Police Department Investigators contacted 27 year old Redding resident Nima Louie Nazari, as he exited a motel room at 536 East Cypress Avenue in Redding.

Nazari was known to investigators from previous arrests, and is on probation for sales of narcotics. Investigators searched Nazari and found him to be in possession of approximately 10 grams of heroin packaged for sale, and over 40 Clonazepam tablets. In the motel room investigators located a set of scales and narcotics packaging.

Nazari was arrested for possession of heroin for sale, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, and a probation violation. He was booked into the Shasta County Jail.

    That is great! Scoop them up and put them where they belong.

    This heroin stuff is really bad.
    When tweakers run out of meth and can’t get any more for whatever reason, they crash for a couple of days.
    When heroin addicts run out of heroin, they get sick, very sick, and will do just about anything to get well.

    With all the blood borne pathogens out there, you wouldn’t think intravenous drug use would have a resurgence.

    But it is all about self destruction, and many will be successful.

      Not to mention that the potency of street heroin varies greatly.
      So a heroin user that is used to doing the cruddy stuff can easily OD on a sack of the good stuff.
      And herion overdoses are fatal unless treated immediately.

    I am glad they caught this person before he was able to sell his goods.
    There is always hope for the user, they can clean up and lead a productive life. I have seen it in my own family.

    12% rehab rate for NA/AA,but overall there is only a 5% rehab.

    You could find a few at Good News Rescue Mission that have managed rehab. Those who have rehab’d would be of value to go out into the grade, middle to talk about drugs. Not easy to stop by the time the kids reach high school. If one is saved from drugs by the rehab addicts speaking, then it is worth it.

    It is not a pretty world to be in…..

    Yet, it is up to the individual to face life rather than trying to escape, for that never works.

    I have always wondered why they allow residents to rent hotel/motel rooms. I traveled frequently to small/medium size communities for a previous job and a lot of the hotels would not let “locals” stay there. It was posted in the lobby. When I asked the clerks almost always said they had just so many problems that it was just the solution then came up with. I know the owners want rooms taken but it seems this type of stuff happens a lot in certain hotel/motel locations around town.
