On April 12, 2023 at about 2:20 pm, the Grays Harbor Drug Task Force (GHDTF) coordinated a traffic stop with the Aberdeen and Hoquiam Police Departments on a suspected drug dealer making deliveries of illegal drugs in the Aberdeen/Hoquiam area.

The fifty-four-year-old Hoquiam man was arrested for driving with a revoked driver’s license and failing to have an ignition interlock device. The Hoquiam Police Department provided their Narcotics K-9 team for an exterior search of the vehicle for illegal drugs. 

The K-9 team received a positive alert of illegal drugs being in the vehicle. The GHDTF applied for a search warrant for the vehicle. Later that evening the GHDTF searched the vehicle and seized the following items from the vehicle and traffic stop:
The items seized are as follows:
• One vehicle
• $2097.00 in cash
• 186.5 grams of methamphetamine
• Approx 1329 fentanyl pills
• 97 grams of fentanyl powder
• 4 grams of heroin
• 3 packages of suboxone strips

The suspect was booked into the Aberdeen Municipal Jail on the driving offenses and later transferred to the Grays Harbor County Jail on Trafficking/Delivery of illegal drugs.

The GHDTF is dedicated to the fight against drugs and relies heavily on the partnerships of citizens and other agencies to make our communities safer.
