Police Find Drugs, Guns in Man’s Car After Arresting Him for Drugs, Gun in His Other Car

It was déjà vu all over again this week when police arrested a man for the narcotics and a stolen gun he had in his car earlier this month – except this time there were more drugs and more guns.

During the original incident – a traffic stop on January 9th – police arrested the man for driving without a valid license and then seized his car* and released him from the West Precinct. The next day, officers served a warrant on his car and found narcotics and a stolen gun, giving them probable cause to arrest the 31-year-old man for offenses related to the recovered evidence.  

Police began looking for the suspect, and on January 25th an officer in the 4400 block of Aurora Avenue North spotted him getting out of a vehicle. Police arrested him for the contraband found in his car on January 10th, and booked him into King County Jail.

Once again, officers seized the car the man was driving and applied for a search warrant. After a judge approved the warrant, officers searched the car on January 28th and found:

  • 695.4 grams of methamphetamine
  • 226.7 grams powdered fentanyl
  • 189.9 grams fentanyl pills
  • 33.8 grams of heroin
  • 9.9 grams of crack cocaine
  • 23.8 grams of cocaine
  • Sawed-off rifle with no serial
  • Stolen pistol

Based on the evidence recovered from the vehicle, detectives are requesting similar charges to the first incident: possession of narcotics with the intent to distribute, possession of a stolen firearm, possession of an unlawful firearm (for the rifle with no serial) and unlawful possession of a firearm because he is a convicted felon.
