Task Force seizes over $1.5 Million in drugs, money in Lake Serene and Shoreline

Thursday, January 23, 2014


According to the Snohomish County Sheriff's Department, the Snohomish Regional Drug and Gang Task Force seized more than $550,000 in cash and 23 pounds of heroin (with an approximate street value of over $1 million) when they served search warrants last week in the Lake Serene neighborhood of Snohomish County and in Shoreline.

Five men and three women were arrested as a result of the operation and the drugs seized are believed to be associated with the Mexican Sinaloa drug cartel. Those arrested include a 22 year-old California man, a 30 year-old Everett man, a 26 year-old woman and 27 year-old man from Shoreline, and a 28 year-old and 29 year-old man from Lynnwood. Names have not yet been released.

The Task Force served several search warrants on three separate locations, which led to additional search warrants on various vehicles. In addition to the drugs and money, they also seized six vehicles and one house and property.

“This latest seizure by our Task Force is a huge win for Snohomish County,” said Sheriff Ty Trenary. “It’s not the value of what was seized that is important:  dangerous drugs were kept out of our communities and the people responsible for drug-related crimes are now behind bars.”

For detailed coverage of this story, you'll hafta look north or south. Shoreline has no full-service media.
