18 Arrests In Seattle And San Francisco Drug Raids

SEATTLE (CBS Seattle) – Two dozen pounds of drugs were seized and 18 people were arrested during raids in the Seattle and San Francisco Bay areas Wednesday.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the raids were the result of a lengthy investigation into a drug-trafficking ring that stretched from San Francisco to Vancouver, B.C. The suspects allegedly brought the drugs from California to the Seattle area and distributed them in Western Washington or Canada.

Methamphetamine, cocaine, crack cocaine and $35,000 in cash were seized in Wednesday’s raids. However, over the course of the investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration and Seattle Police Department, the seizures totalled more than $700,000 in cash, 11 kilos of cocaine, 40 pounds of methamphetamine and four firearms.

Seattle Police Chief John Diaz praised the effort, saying the  operation was made possible due to information obtained during a routine “buy-bust” conducted by Seattle Police officers and detectives.
