Three arrested after drug task force search warrant served

Aberdeen, WA – Three men were arrested after the Grays Harbor Drug Task Force served a search warrant.

Police tell KXRO that the Drug Task Force served the search warrant for alleged illegal drug sales in the 200 block of West 3rd Street in Aberdeen. 

Officers from Aberdeen Police Department, Hoquiam Police Department, the Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and the Lewis County Joint Narcotics Enforcement Team (JNET) assisted. 

According to police, a 24-year old Aberdeen man was booked into the Grays Harbor County Jail on drug trafficking charges. 

They say a 51-year old Aberdeen man and a 32-year old Aberdeen man were also arrested on outstanding warrants. 

This was the second time in less six months that the Grays Harbor Drug Task Force has served a narcotics warrant at the location. 

The residence is directly across the street from McDermoth Elementary School. 

Designated “School Enhancement” areas are considered during sentencing if a person is found guilty of illegal drug sales near school areas. 

Police say suspected heroin and methamphetamine were seized from the location. 

They say the Drug Task Force, in collaboration with their local law enforcement partners, will continue to target mid-level drug traffickers because they profit from poisoning our communities and burdening our citizens into the spiral of addiction and criminal activity. 

The Grays Harbor Drug Task Force consists of detectives from the Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Office, Aberdeen Police Department, and Hoquiam Police Department.
