Detectives say the suspects were making upwards of 200 drug deals a day, according to an SPD statement issued Friday.
In the first arrest on Friday August 10th, investigators stopped an alleged dealer in the parking lot of a Ballard auto parts store and found 129 grams of methamphetamine, 227 grams of cocaine, 39 grams of crack cocaine, 74 grams of heroin and 25 MDMA pills in his vehicle. Detectives then searched his apartment in the 600 block of Comstock Street and found 58 additional grams of cocaine, 156 grams of crack, 43 grams of methamphetamine, 49 grams of heroin and $19,000 cash.
The man was booked into the King County Jail.
Several days later, North and West Precinct Anti-Crime Teams arrested four people at a Magnolia Apartment, in the 4000 block of Gilman Avenue West.
There police found 2 1/4 kilos of heroin, 443 grams of methamphetamine, 61 grams of crack cocaine, two stolen handguns, and $111,000 in cash.
Three suspects arrested at the apartment were booked into jail, and one was taken to Harborview Medical Center ‘after he injured himself jumping from a third-floor balcony in an attempt to flee from police,” according to the police statement.
