Kirkland Police Serve Warrants on Area Drug Houses

Case/Incident #2016-29497

Kirkland, WA –
The Kirkland Police Department served search warrants on five different locations today suspected to be used in the illegal growing and distribution of marijuana. Three of the locations were located in Kirkland and two others were located in Seattle. Kirkland Police Detectives have been investigating the operation for some time gathering information and were successful in obtaining search warrants on the homes. The homes were used to operate high-tech grow operations of marijuana plants in residential neighborhoods. Subjects were located at some of the locations and charged with various felony crimes.

The investigation originated from observant residents living in the area of one of the houses. The residents reported suspicious activity to the Kirkland Police Department and the case grew to include a total of five locations in both Kirkland and Seattle. This is a great example of cooperation between the community and the police where residents observed suspicious activity in their neighborhoods and reported it to the police. The Kirkland Police Department would like to thank the Seattle Police Department, the Lynnwood Police Department, and the other assisting agencies for their help in this investigation.

For more information about this case, please contact Lieutenant Rob Saloum 425-587-3417 or email at rsaloum@kirklandwa.gov.
