King County Sheriff’s detectives seized approximately 1 1/2 pounds of methamphetamine and $4,000 in cash during a search warrant served Jan. 5 at a Kent house.

The warrant was served at a residence in the 13900 block of Southeast 272nd Street at around 6:30 a.m., according to a Sheriff's Office media release. The search warrant was obtained after a lengthy investigation that started last summer regarding the sale of methamphetamine.

In addition to the drugs and money seized, detectives also found scales and packaging material commonly used to weigh and package drugs. Body armor, brass knuckles and spring loaded knives were also found in the house.

Detectives arrested the residents of the house, a 48-year-old man and a 42-year-old woman and booked them into the King County jail on unspecified accusations. The case has been forwarded to the King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office.
