Police Find The Motherlode During Traffic Stop
That is a crap ton of narcotics.
In a staggering and record-breaking bust, the Grant County Sheriff's Department announced a big win for the Interagency Narcotics Enforcement Team. The team includes detectives from Grant County Sheriff’s Office, Moses Lake Police Department, Ephrata Police Department, and Washington State Patrol..
It all started with an October 5th traffic stop by the Moses Lake Police Department. A suspect was found with nearly eight pounds of methamphetamine and heroin, and a subsequent Grant County INET investigation has now led to an additional seven warrants served.
Those busts netted 25 more pounds of methamphetamine, seven pounds of heroin, and 40 pounds of processed marijuana with a combined street value of $1.2 million.
Grant County Sheriff Tom Jones said, “This is huge. In fact, it’s the largest drug seizure in the history of INET.”
