Detectives Recover 62 Pounds of Methamphetamine and Arrest Three

SPD Narcotics detectives seized over 60 pounds of methamphetamine during an operation in SODO Thursday afternoon.

Earlier this month, detectives worked in conjunction with agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration and Homeland Security Investigations regarding a large supply of narcotics in the Seattle and South King County area.

Last Thursday, Narcotics Unit detectives and units from SPD’s Community Response Group conducted an operation in the SODO area related to the investigation. Three suspects were taken into custody and police impounded an associated vehicle.

Detectives tested and weighed the contents of two suitcases seized from the suspects. In total, 62 pounds of methamphetamine were recovered and submitted into evidence.

Police booked the three suspects – ages 23, 29, and 31 – to the King County Jail for investigation of Violation of the Uniform Controlled Substances Act.

These arrests highlight the continuing cooperation between the Seattle Police Department and its federal law enforcement partners to interdict illegal narcotics in our community.
