Four California men are facing charges in Douglas County after they were arrested for drug sales Dec. 3-9.

Carlos Honable, 23, William Anyaogu Elendu, 23, Joseph Kieshawn Gaines, 26, and Bryan Alexander Harrison, 24, were taken into custody.

Members of the Douglas County Street Enforcement Team, Tri-Net Taskforce, and with the support of the Nevada National Guard’s Counterdrug Task Force made arrests as part of an ongoing investigation.

Douglas investigators received word that a group from Stockton was trying to set up shop in Carson Valley to sell drugs and firearms.

After a several month investigation, undercover officers were able to buy 170 grams of heroin, 50 grams of methamphetamine and a handgun.

This investigation was a cooperative effort with not only several law enforcement agencies and the National Guard, but the community of Douglas County.

Harrison appeared in East Fork Justice Court on Wednesday, where his hearing was continued until Dec. 23.

His bail was $300,000 according to the Douglas County Jail.

Gaines was booked into jail on $400,000 bail.

He appeared in East Fork Justice Court on Friday, where he was ordered to appear back in court on Wednesday for a status hearing.

A Dec. 24 preliminary hearing was set in his case.

Honable is also scheduled to appear Wednesday in East Fork Justice Court.

A Feb. 6 hearing was set for Elandu, who is no longer in custody.

According to court documents, Harrison sold the gun.

Residents reported witnessing the arrest of Harrison and Elendu at the Gardnerville Walmart around 8 p.m. Dec. 3.

One man said he saw officers with guns drawn taking the men into custody.

Harrison allegedly had 43 grams of methamphetamine and 16 grams of heroin at the time, according to court documents.
