Drugs were disguised as candy

Detectives with the King County Sheriff’s Office assigned to the City of Shoreline along with the United States Postal Inspectors Office and the Juneau Police Department arrested two suspects involved in distributing narcotics between King County and Juneau, Alaska.

Detectives identified a male residing in various hotels in the Kent and Renton area as a main supplier of heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine. This male was supplying street level dealers operating in the Shoreline, North Seattle, and Edmonds areas.

The male was also sending packages through the United States Postal Service to an address in Juneau. Detectives intercepted one of the packages shipped from a Shoreline Post Office and discovered the package contained narcotics that had been formed and disguised as commercially made chocolates.

Postal Inspectors tracked the package from Seattle to the Juneau address.  On February 28, officers from the Juneau Police Department assisted Postal Inspectors with a search warrant service in Juneau while detectives from the King County Sheriff’s Office and members of our TAC30 (SWAT) team served a warrant at a motel in the 6300 block of S 212th in Kent.  A 46 year old male was arrested at the scene of the Kent warrant service and another male was arrested in Juneau.

The investigation uncovered approximately 745 grams of heroin, 135 grams of methamphetamine, 90 grams of cocaine and 300 grams of ephedrine.

The case is ongoing and is being handled by the Postal Inspectors.
