A second adult male with numerous outstanding warrants was also taken into custody at the scene as he was found hiding in a closet.
Upon searching this subject, suspected methamphetamine and related paraphernalia was found in his pocket.
Both men were booked into jail.
Police, local code enforcement officials, and neighbors are very familiar with this residence due to the high volume of foot and vehicle traffic during the day and night.
The surrounding neighbors were obviously fed up with the constant traffic and posted signs in the area. The Drug Task Force and the Hoquiam PD listen to these complaints and they are often critical to these ongoing investigations.
The Hoquiam Police Department recognizes the menace these nuisance drug houses pose and we work closely with the DTF to address them.
