2 charged after deputy finds drugs in rental vehicle

Two individuals were taken into custody for possession of narcotics after a Washington deputy found drugs sitting in plain view in a rented vehicle. The drug bust occurred at a 24-hour Safeway in Poulsbo at around 2 a.m. on Sept. 24.

The deputy said that he was attempting to grab a bite to eat from the Safeway when the store manager alerted him to a vehicle that was sitting parked at the store's garage. Inside, there were two individuals who had allegedly ingested heroin. The deputy also said that there was an open safe full of narcotics in plain view. The two individuals were identified as a 31-year-old man and a 25-year old man from Kitsap County.

During a search of the vehicle, investigators found about 30 grams of heroin and meth, drug paraphernalia, firearms and about $10,000 in cash. Additionally, investigators reportedly found stolen items including soft body armor, radios and knives. The 31-year-old man was facing five felony counts that ranged from possession of a controlled substance to possession with intent to deliver. The 25-year-old man was facing possession of a controlled substance. Both individuals pleaded not guilty to the charges.

In the state of Washington, felony drug charges could result in lengthy prison sentences or other serious consequences that could have a major impact on an accused person's future. If a person is facing a jail sentence or other consequences after being charged with drug offenses, a criminal law attorney may provide a defense to the allegations. If the defendant does not have any previous drug convictions, for example, the attorney may negotiate a lighter sentence, such as completing a drug rehabilitation program.
