Four Pasco Men Arrested in Methamphetamine Investigation

JUNE 14 (PASCO, Wash.) – Early this morning, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Tri-Cities Metro Drug Task Force (MDTF) executed three federal search warrants in Pasco, Washington.  The enforcement action stems from a federal investigation targeting a methamphetamine drug trafficking organization.

As a result, four people were taken into custody and will make their initial appearance on June 17, 2013, at 2:00 p.m. before U.S. Magistrate Judge James P. Hutton in U.S. District Court in Yakima.  
“We in the Tri-Cities are fortunate to have such strong partnerships with local and federal law enforcement,” stated Chief Metzger.  “This case is a great example of that partnership and how working together will continue to make our community safe.”
The investigation was led by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Tri-Cities Metro Drug Task Force.  The following agencies provided significant assistance in today’s enforcement action: Pasco Police Department, Kennewick Police Department, Richland Police Department, West Richland Police Department, Washington State Patrol, Franklin County Sheriff’s Office and the Benton County Sheriff’s Office.

Every individual arrested is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
