SUQUAMISH — Two persons were arrested late Oct. 21 as a result of a narcotics investigation at a residence in the 6100 block of NE Center Street, Suquamish.
Detectives with the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigative Unit followed-up on tips concerning suspected drug activity at the residence, according to Sheriff’s Office spokesman Scott Wilson.
“Detectives made contact with a 32-year-old female resident, which ultimately led to the development of probable cause. A search warrant was obtained and the house was processed,” Wilson reported.
“During a search of the house, a significant quantity of drug paraphernalia, including syringes, digital scales, packaging material and other drug related items, was located.”
A sample of residue obtained from the drug paraphernalia tested positive for heroin, Wilson said. Approximately 2.5 ounces of suspected heroin was located inside the home.
The woman was arrested for possession of heroin, possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a building for drug use/sale. A second female resident was taken into custody after it was determined that she had four outstanding warrants for her arrest.
The SIU unit was assisted by detectives from the Westsound Narcotics Enforcement Team (WestNET).
