Man suspected of selling pot to Ballard middle and high school students
Seattle police have arrested a man who they say sold marijuana and marijuana brownies to students from Ballard High School and Whitman Middle School from the back door of his home.
Earlier this month, police received complaints about middle school and high school students buying drugs from a home in the 6700 block of 15th Avenue Northwest, police said. During their subsequent investigation, detectives saw school-aged children from the two schools going to the back door of the home and buying marijuana, according to police.
This morning, Seattle police served a search warrant at the home and detained and interviewed five adults.
Marijuana cigarettes, brownies and bags of marijuana were found in several rooms in the home, police said. Seven trays of marijuana brownies were found in the basement along with a marijuana grow operation, they added. Detectives also found numerous firearms in the home.
The primary suspect, a 50-year-old man, was arrested at his work by narcotics detectives. Police say a total of three men were arrested.
