A 55-year-old Belfair man was arrested and several grams of methamphetamine, prescription pills, marijuana and nearly $1400 cash were seized during an arrest on Saturday, December 19th at the Union River access area. Fish and Wildlife Officer J. Summit initially contacted a male and female sitting in a vehicle parked at the access area that did not have a Discover Pass displayed as required.
Noticing a glass pipe with white residue in the center console, Officer J. Smith asked the occupants of the vehicle about the pipe and the male driver, Mark A. Shockley, attempted to cover it with other items. Officer Summit pointed this out to Shockley who then handed the still very hot pipe to Officer Summit.
When asked if there was anything else in the vehicle Shockley pulled a black bag from his seat and handed it to Officer Summit. The bag contained suspected methamphetamine, small baggies, a scale, a bag of marijuana, white powder, and a glass smoking pipe.
Deputy C. Mondry with the Mason County Sheriff’s Office conducted a search of the vehicle. A cell phone was also seized from the vehicle but no Discover Pass was located.
Shockley was arrested for possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. A large amount of cash was located on his person and also seized as evidence.
