Officers arrested a drug dealer in Ballard early Thursday and recovered a significant amount of methamphetamine and other narcotics.
Police met the man shortly after midnight after setting up a deal to buy drugs from the 45-year-old suspect. Officers arrested the man and recovered 176 grams of meth,10 grams of heroin, five grams of mushrooms, and 66 doses of Suboxone, a prescription drug used in opioid addiction treatment, sometimes sold by street dealers in place of heroin. The man was also in possession of $1,300 cash and multiple debit cards in another person’s name.
Police then booked the suspect into the King County Jail for narcotics possession with intent to distribute.
