SPD: Man deals drugs from stroller with 2 toddlers

A 38-year-old man was arrested on Monday after he sold to an undercover Seattle police officer methamphetamines that had been stashed in a stroller with two toddlers, according to police.

Officers were conducting a narcotics operation around 3:30 p.m. in Cal Anderson Park when the suspect agreed to sell meth to an undercover officer, police said. The suspect walked the officer over to a stroller with two children, ages 1 and 2, according to police.

The man retrieved the drugs from the stroller and handed them to the undercover officer, police said. When the deal was over, additional officers were called in and the man was arrested, according to police.

Police recovered about 8 grams of methamphetamine from the stroller.

The children were turned over to Children’s Protective Services until their mother was able to take custody, police said.

The suspect was booked into King County Jail on investigation of felony drug dealing.
