Marysville Police arrested a 31 year old Marysville resident on Wednesday, December 2nd, following a recently initiated drug investigation.
Members of the Marysville Police Pro-Act Team, N.I.T.E., had begun investigating recent complaints of possible drug activity at an apartment located in the 17500 block of 25th Ave., in Marysville.
Officers were able to obtain the name of the suspect and were provided a description of the suspect’s vehicle, a white pickup truck, including the truck’s license plate number. Officers were able to determine the man had both a felony and a misdemeanor warrant for his arrest. As officers were gathering information the suspect’s truck drove past them through the parking lot.
A traffic stop was made on the vehicle and the driver was identified as the subject with the arrest warrants. The driver was taken into custody by officers for the outstanding warrants. During the initial investigation, officers were able to determine there was a gun located back in the apartment and that the suspect was not allowed to be in possession of any guns due to a current and valid protection order.
Following the arrest, officers obtained search warrants for the residence and vehicle of the suspect, as well as, a storage unit used by the man. During the execution of the search warrants officers seized 13 guns, approximately 650 Oxycodone pills, and other, smaller quantities of illegal prescription medications.
The man was eventually booked at the Snohomish County Jail on investigation of unlawful possession of firearms, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, and violation of a protection order.
Further inquiries regarding this press release should be directed to Commander Robb Lamoureux.
