Police Arrest Two Downtown Dealers, Recover Stolen Gun

Police arrested two prolific downtown drug dealers and recovered a stolen handgun from a North Seattle motel room after serving a warrant on Thursday.

After making multiple purchases from the couple, who were operating around 3rd Avenue and Pine Street, West Precinct Anti-Crime Team officers and the Narcotics Unit served a warrant on their motel room near 120th Avenue.

Police recovered a stolen handgun and 3.5 grams of heroin, which was a particular mixture more potent than that typically recovered by police in Seattle.

Officers booked the 22-year-old woman and the 38-year-old man into the King County Jail for narcotics and weapons violations.
