Police Seize Stolen Guns, Heroin, Meth, Fentanyl From Trafficking Ring

SPD Narcotics detectives have broken up a major drug trafficking ring, suspected of supplying dealers in North Seattle and Shoreline.

On Thursday, after a months-long investigation, members of the Narcotics Unit, North Precinct Anti-Crime Team and the Drug Enforcement Administration served warrants at two homes in Shoreline and Mountlake Terrace, where they arrested three people and seized significant quantities of narcotics and weapons.

Police recovered 3.86 kilos of Heroin, 8.82 kilos of Methamphetamine, 1.42 pounds of Cocaine and approximately 69,000 oxycodone and fentanyl pills, as well as a stolen handgun, a stolen rifle, and a stolen ballistic vest and over $113,000 in cash.

As police were serving the warrants, one suspect unsuccessfully attempted to escape from police by jumping off a second-story balcony. Another man in the home tossed three one-pound packages of methamphetamine out a window as officers began searching the home.

Police booked three suspects into the King County Jail for weapons and narcotics violations and continue to investigate.
