|On Tuesday 6/30/09 at 10:30 p.m. Grays Harbor County deputies and Hoquiam officers executed a search warrant at a home in the 2200 block of Sumner, in Hoquiam. The search warrant was obtained as the result of a month long investigation by Grays Harbor County deputies in which the man was suspected of selling marijuana out of the house. Law enforcement began the investigation thanks to the tips and complaints from residents of Hoquiam.|
During the search the 20 year old male resident of the house was arrested and close to a pound of processed marijuana and $810 in cash was confiscated as evidence. The man admitted to officers that he sold approximately a pound of marijuana a month to young adults in the area. He was booked into the Grays Harbor County jail on drug sales related charges.
Hoquiam Deputy Police Chief Jim Malony said "this is another example of law enforcement agencies in Grays Harbor working aggressively together to combat our drug related problems. The positive result is that another dealer is off the street."
