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.firstname.lastname@example.org or 253-872-6600, ext. 5052.
