SPD detectives in conjunction with our Federal partners at Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) completed a narcotics operation where they served two search warrants for residences involved in drug trafficking in the North King County and South Snohomish regions.  

Detectives connected these drug trafficking organizations to aiding the narcotics activity plaguing the Northgate and Lake City communities.   

During the two warrant searches, police recovered the following:

  • Approximately 8.4 grams of heroin 
  • Approximately $46,000 US currency
