Detectives Recover Thousands of Fentanyl Pills, Cash, and Other Narcotics 

Seattle Police Narcotics Detectives work with federal partners in Homeland Security Investigation and Drug Enforcement Administration to arrest narcotics dealers and recover narcotics headed to the Seattle area. 

Earlier this month, SPD detectives and HSI agents identified and located a narcotics dealer after several control buy operations. Once a search warrant was obtained, the agencies arrested the narcotics dealer and recovered the following: 

– 415.9 grams of fentanyl pills 

– 657.8 grams of fentanyl powder 

– 1528.6 grams of methamphetamine  

– 834 grams of heroin 

– 22.5 grams of cocaine 

– Approximately $16,700 in cash 

In another operation, this past October in 2022, SPD detectives learned of a narcotics dealer who travelled from California to distribute fentanyl in the city of Seattle. With the assistance of DEA agents, SPD traveled to California and located the source of these “skittle” fentanyl pills. Afterwards, the investigation was taken over by the local agency, the Clovis Police Department and the DEA.  

After a three-month investigation by the Clovis Police Department Special Enforcement Team and the DEA, a man was arrested, who was in possession of over one million worth of fentanyl pills. The agencies obtained search warrants and executed them with the assistance of K9 Bodie. The search warrants resulted in 35 pounds of fentanyl pills, which is about 160,000 pills valued over one million dollars and over two pounds of heroin.

SPD Narcotics Detectives continue to investigate and work with our partners to fight the drug epidemic that plagues our community.
