Raids in Shoreline, Lynnwood yield heroin, cash, 8 arrests

A series of raids last week resulted in the arrests of eight people and seizure of 23 pounds of heroin and $550,000 in cash, the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

The raids last week, conducted by the Snohomish County Regional Drug and Gang Task Force, targeted locations in the Lake Serene neighborhood north of Lynnwood and in Shoreline, the sheriff’s office said.  The five men and three women who were arrested are believed to be associated with the Mexican Sinaloa drug cartel, according to a news release.

Those arrested include a 22-year-old California man; a 30-year-old Everett man; a 26-year-old woman and 27-year-old man from Shoreline; and two men, ages 28 and 29, from Lynnwood.

In addition to the drugs and money, the task force also seized six vehicles and one house and property. The heroin seized has a street value of about $1 million.

“It’s not the value of what was seized that is important,” Sheriff Ty Trenary said in the news release. “Dangerous drugs were kept out of our communities and the people responsible for drug-related crimes are now behind bars.”
