Seattle Police Department SWAT and narcotics detectives recently arrested a 37-year-old Auburn man as part of an investigation into fentanyl dealing in the Seattle area.

Early this month, according to the SPD, SWAT officers who were serving a warrant at the man’s Auburn apartment in the 800 block of 45th Street Northeast found him trying to flush narcotics down a toilet.

According to the SPD, their subsequent search of the man’s apartment turned up a variety of different drugs, among them Xanax, dextroamphetamine, fentanyl pills, mushrooms, cocaine, and methamphetamine, in addition to a stolen shotgun, a handgun under the man’s mattress and a stolen rifle with an attached suppressor and a drum magazine.

According to the SPD, the man previously sold Oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl to police.

Police booked the man, a convicted felon, into jail for narcotics possession, unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of stolen firearms.

Police have not released the man’s name.
