Two Arrested, Thousands of Fentanyl Pills Seized After Narcotics Operation

SPD Narcotics detectives, along with agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration and Homeland Security Investigations, arrested two suspects and seized both fentanyl and heroin in Everett Tuesday morning.

Over the course of the last few months, detectives worked in conjunction with our federal partners regarding a large supplier of narcotics in the northern King County and southern Snohomish County area.

Narcotics detectives identified two suspects and served a warrant on their residence. Detectives recovered more than three pounds of heroin, three pounds of fentanyl pills, four pounds of fentanyl powder and $3,400 of cash. The estimated street value of the seized narcotics is more than $200,000 dollars.

Police booked the two suspects – ages 46 and 24 – to the Snohomish 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.
