The camouflage paint job on a felon’s 1978 Swinger motorhome did little to disguise his Magnolia drug dealing operation from SPD detectives, who arrested the man Tuesday and found methamphetamine and heroin hidden under a mattress inside the RV.
SPD’s Narcotics Unit had received information about narcotics dealing associated with the motorhome, and detectives were able to make several drug purchases from the 58-year-old man.
Narcotics detectives and West Precinct officers knocked on the door of the motorhome in the 1400 block of W. Armory Way around 7:30 PM and took the 58-year-old into custody.
Police searched the motorhome and found 13 grams of methamphetamine, 8 grams of heroin and a small collection of Oxycodone and Lorazepam pills under a mattress. Police also recovered $500 cash, a narcotics pipe, digital scale and packaging materials during the search.
Detectives booked the 58-year-old into the King County Jail for delivery of narcotics.
The Seattle Police Department remains committed to addressing criminal behavior associated with motorhomes and recreational vehicles. SPD also continues to work closely with Mayor Ed Murray and other city departments to provide a safe, lawful environment for motorhome residents in our city.
