A 45-year-old man was arrested last Wednesday in Bremerton for possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine and fentanyl pills, as well as unlawful possession of a firearm.

According to an incident report, after detectives from the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigations Unit obtained a search warrant for German Segura’s residence in the 4000 block of Country Lane NW, they found approximately 13 pounds of heroin, 10 pounds of meth, a half-pound of cocaine and 100 grams of pills. In total, three firearms were seized, along with over $20,000 in cash.

The estimated street value of the drugs, if sold in small quantities could be as much as one million dollars, the report stated.

Authorities allegedly used two confidential sources to track down Segura after hearing that he was moving large quantities of meth, cocaine, heroin and fentanyl pills out of a trailer in Chico. Both sources had information on the vehicle Segura was using to travel to California to pick up the drugs.

Both sources had allegedly seen large amounts of drugs in the trailer in recent weeks. They told authorities the vehicle was registered to a person not involved with the drug trafficking organization.

West Sound Narcotics Enforcement Team Detectives were conducting surveillance while the two sources talked with Segura inside the trailer during the week of July 1. The contents of the conversation included the selling of the drugs, the price of the drugs, and that the drugs were on site in the trailer, documents read.

While detectives were surveilling the trailer and preparing a search warrant of the residence, Segura allegedly came out of the trailer carrying bags and suitcases to a car. After one of the sources confirmed that he was the target of the operation, detectives began to approach the trailer.

After contact was made at the front door, Segura opened the door and was arrested immediately. He told authorities that he didn’t know who the items belonged to. Segura is being held on $750,000 bail.

“Our investigators continue to work tirelessly to disrupt these drug trafficking organizations. This seizure will keep thousands of users quantities of narcotics from reaching our streets,” KCSO Lieutenant and WestNET Commander Jon VanGesen said in a KCSO Facebook post. “We are thankful for the courageous citizens willing to provide information to make a positive difference in our communities.”
