Marysville woman pleads guilty to federal firearms, drug charges

A 34-year-old Marysville woman pleaded guilty today in U.S. District Court in Seattle to unlawful dealing in firearms, being a felon in possession of a firearm and distribution of methamphetamine, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Heather Chancey, also known as Heather Slater, was leader of four people indicted in July by federal prosecutors for allegedly dealing in firearms.  The indictment alleges the group illegally sold more than 50 firearms to an undercover investigator, with many of the transactions occurring in the parking lot of the Tulalip Resort Casino.

According to the indictment, Chancey is prohibited from owning weapons because of a 2001 conviction for possession of methamphetamine.

Chancey is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 3
