A Freezer Full of Waffles, Ice Cream, and Black Tar Heroin Among Numerous Finds in West Seattle Drug Investigation

SPD investigators seized a handgun and large amounts of cash, meth, cocaine, pills, and heroin after serving a warrant at a West Seattle home on Saturday.

Around 5:30 PM on Saturday, members of the West Precinct Anti-Crime Team and SPD Narcotics Unit, with the assistance of the Drug Enforcement Administration, served a warrant at the apartment of a 52-year-old man in the 900 block of SW Holden Street.

There, police found 1,455 grams of methamphetamine, 53 grams of cocaine, 41 grams of oxycodone pills and 229 grams of black tar heroin, which was in the suspect’s freezer.

Police also found a 9mm handgun and $39,000 in cash in the home.

Officers seized the gun, cash, and narcotics, and provided food and water for a cat in the apartment before securing the unit and leaving the scene.

The 52-year-old suspect—who was arrested for domestic violence the day before police served a warrant at his apartment and is also on federal probation—is currently being held at the King County Jail.
