MARYSVILLE – On Friday, Feb. 25, Marysville Police (MPD) was dispatched to a report of a male slumped over in a running Jaguar. After some discussion, the occupant was arrested for an outstanding warrant.
MPD said that after an initial warrant-related search found $2,726 cash on the suspect’s person, the officer returned to secure the car when he saw a black semi-automatic handgun on the driver’s seat. The officer then acquired a second warrant to recover the firearm & related accessories and soon found out that the handgun was reported stolen from the Evertt Police Department.
As the MPD officer searched a backpack for other firearms, he discovered a large container of what he believed to be methamphetamine. Police say this led him to apply for and receive another warrant for evidence of possession of narcotics & intent to sell.
The search recovered a total of $35,654 in cash, about 5,100 blue M30 pills, 3 lbs. of methamphetamine, 1.5 lbs. of black tar heroin & 1/4 lb. of cocaine. The approximate street value of these narcotics is $200,000.
