Weekend Warrant Nets Rifles, Shotguns, Handguns, Meth, and Hundreds of Pills

Officers served a search warrant in West Seattle Sunday morning where they found hundreds of pills and 19 guns.

Southwest Precinct Anti-Crime Team Officers converged on a home in the 7000 block of 18 Avenue Southwest Sunday at 10 a.m. and arrested a 28-year-old man as he attempted to flee through the backdoor of the house.

Officers searched the home and found 189 hydrocodone pills, 276 amphetamine pills, 3.5 grams of methamphetamine, 11 handguns, five rifles –one of which was modified with a bump stock– and three shotguns.  Officers placed all of the weapons into evidence pending further investigation.

Officers booked the man into King County Jail for narcotics-related charges and will work with the prosecutor’s office on possible weapons charges.
