Washington couple charged after early-morning drug raid

Two Washington residents are facing the prospect of decades behind bars after being taken into custody on March 10 following an early-morning drug raid. The 23-year-old woman and 37-year-old man face charges of possession of heroin with the intent to deliver and a raft of weapons counts. Charging documents suggest the couple shared a travel trailer on 224th Street East in Graham.

When they entered the Pierce County residence, detectives say they found more than three pounds of heroin, 64 prescription pills and about a pound of crystal methamphetamine along with $30,000 in cash. The heroin was packaged in bags weighing about half a pound each according to reports, and deputies at the scene put the street value of the haul at about $50,000. In addition to the drugs, police are said to have seized eight firearms, including a stolen handgun, and several high-capacity magazines.

Also recovered was law enforcement identification thought to have been stolen and fireworks that were disposed of by bomb squad technicians. Detectives also claim to have found a note written by the woman that contained details of drug transactions that had taken place in the trailer. A canvass of area residents is said to have added to the evidence haul by uncovering seven individuals who identified the man as their heroin supplier.

When faced with facts like these, experienced criminal defense attorneys may seek to settle drug cases. The vast majority of criminal matters are resolved by plea agreements, and prosecutors are often receptive to a speedy settlement even when they have been provided with compelling evidence by law enforcement. When evidence is not as strong or police may have crossed lines established by the U.S. Constitution, defense attorneys may argue vigorously for drug charges to be dropped.
