On the afternoon of May 27, 2022 Snohomish county Directed Patrol (DP) deputies observed a gray Mercedes driving over 80 mph while following too close and weaving through traffic. 

The Mercedes continued southbound at a high rate of speed. As the Mercedes approached 220th St SW on I-5, DP was able to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle.
 
During the contact, the two adult occupants admitted that there were several guns in the car and advised that there were a few hundred M30’s in a bag that was in the rear passenger compartment. During the investigation, DP recovered around 900 M30’s (Fentanyl pills) and three guns, one of which was a ghost AR-15 with a large drum style magazine.
 
The driver of the vehicle, a 23-year-old Everett man, confessed to the M30’s and the firearms being in his possession and was subsequently booked into Snohomish County Jail.

But we don’t need better gun laws…

We are fortunate that they were able to initiate a traffic stop! With the new legislation regarding pursuits from the 2021 state legislative session credited as the reason by some, law enforcement is increasingly abandoning high-speed chases. The State Patrol and other law enforcement agencies recently reported that fewer motorists are stopping for them (https://www.king5.com/article/news/crime/washington-drivers-not-stopping-police-wsp/281-a37e38e9-d3c3-4100-a2f9-9a111c8f945f). That has made it even more dangerous for the rest of us to drive.
