Bremerton police bust suspected meth house

Bremerton police bust suspected meth house

BREMERTON—The house had security cameras and a heavy steel door, but that didn’t stop the Bremerton Police Department’s Special Operations Group from taking it down.

There had been numerous reports from residents that there were high levels of foot traffic at the home on the 800 block of Park Ave. and that it was being used for drug activity. Following a lengthy investigation and surveillance operation, BPD said it was able to get a search warrant. SOG officers and detectives, along with a K-9 security team, served the warrant the evening of Jan. 25.

Inside, they discovered and confiscated $650 in cash and a substantial amount of suspected methamphetamine. Based on that, information on the suspects has been forwarded to the Kitsap County Prosecutor’s Office for charges.

“Residents often ask what their police department is doing about suspected drug houses—this is the answer,” said Bremerton Police Chief Steve Strachan. “It may take some time, but we are committed to getting enough information and doing the diligent work needed to make a good case and shut it down.”

Residents who have information about suspected drug houses can report it anonymously by going to the “Drug Tip” section of the Bremerton Police Department web page at http://www.ci.bremerton.wa.us/335/Police-Department.
