Proactive Officers Arrest Man Conducting Narcotics Sales at 3rd and Yesler, Recover Drugs and Cash

Two bicycle officers interrupted what appeared to be a narcotics transaction yesterday afternoon near the Prefontaine Park fountain.

Shortly after 1:00 pm Monday, Officers Eastman and Luckie watched the man engage in drug transactions.  They arrested the 41-year-old man without incident and recovered nearly 9 grams of Ecstasy and crack cocaine and heroin from him.   The suspect also had over $500 cash and a digital scale.

Officers booked the suspect into the King County Jail for possession with the intent to deliver.
