Seattle Drug Bust Uncovers Cache in Belltown
SEATTLE, WA – Police seized a large cache of drugs across three downtown locations last week during operations against drug dealers.
In the first operation, bike officers came across a 26-year-old alleged drug dealer and a 20-year-old sitting in an SUV at the corner of 2nd Avenue and Madison Street. Inside the SUV, they found a stash of drugs including heroin, methamphetamine, Xanax, Oxycontin, Viagra, psychedelic mushrooms, a handgun, and cash, they said.
The 26-year-old was turned over to the Department of Homeland Security, although police underscored that he’s a U.S. citizen. The other man was connected with a drug diversion program.
After those arrests, police were able to set up a meeting with another dealer who was working out of an apartment in Belltown along 3rd Avenue. They arrested the 35-year-old dealer, who apparently gave police permission to search his apartment – and they found more drugs.
Inside the apartment, police said they found 60 grams of heroin, 80 grams of meth, 58 grams of shrooms, 25 Oxycontin pills, 25 Viagra pills, and a large caliber gun. The dealer also told police about another stash he was keeping at a hotel along 6th Avenue, and they found 379 grams of meth there.
The dealer was arrested and booked into jail on suspicion of possession of narcotics and possession of a firearm.
