Narcotics Detectives Seize Guns, Drugs from Fife Dealer

SPD Narcotics investigators seized four handguns, over a 1,300 Oxycodone pills and other drugs from a dealer after tracking him to Fife, Washington this week.

On Tuesday, May 14th, Narcotics Unit detectives arrested the 34-year-old man outside his apartment and recovered a loaded handgun from his bag. Detectives then served a warrant on his apartment and found three additional pistols—two stashed in a shoebox and one other tucked underneath a pillow on his bed—along with 1,300 Oxycodone pills, 185 Xanax pills, and 33 grams of cocaine, which was hidden in a purple velvet bag. Detectives believe the man was dealing drugs at downtown Seattle clubs and in South Seattle.

The suspect is a convicted felon and unable to legally possess firearms. Detectives booked him into the Pierce County Jail for narcotics and weapons charges.
