Drug bust at Mville home
Marysville Police on June 29 served a warrant at a house owned by an 87-year-old man and his 75-year-old wife. The home in the 7400 block of 60th Place NE is in a community for people 55 years and older, and the focus of the raid was the couples 20-year-old grandson, according to a probable cause affidavit filed by police with the Snohomish County prosecutor.
Police had previously witnessed two controlled buys from the suspect, who sold a white powder he claimed to be methamphetamine. During a search of the premises police found meth and paraphernalia such as glass pipes with white powder residue and suspected cutting agents in the room where the suspect was living. The young man admitted to selling only rock salt, but said he smokes marijuana and has used meth in the past.
The home was the scene of a shooting in January and had been on the Marysville departments to-do list for sometime, according to Commander Ralph Krusey.
We were getting lots of complaints from citizens and as a result we focused on it, Krusey said. Hopefully this will clean it up.
The address was visited frequently by police for disputes, fights and family issues. Police dont know where the suspects parents are and Krusey said there was another adult child of the elderly couple also living at the house. The property owners got a letter warning them about the consequences of tolerating illegal activity and urging them to take action. It did not appear that the elderly couple were being taken advantage of, he added.
We spoke with them, they denied knowing anything was going on, Krusey said. They seemed to be in possession of their faculties.
The suspect was booked into the Snohomish County jail on three counts of violations of controlled substances laws, with bail set at $10,000.
