SEATTLE - Seattle police said a man who sold drugs to an undercover officer at a park had his two children with him and retrieved the drugs from their stroller.
Police said officers from the East Precinct’s Anti-Crime Team were conducting a narcotics operation in Cal Anderson Park on Capitol Hill about 3:30 p.m. Monday when a 38-year-old man agreed to sell methamphetamine to an undercover officer.
Investigators said the man, identified as Paul Edward Asher, walked the officer over to his two children, ages 1 and 2 years old, who were in a stroller.
Officers said Asher reached behind where the children were sitting and retrieved the drugs from inside the stroller.
As soon as the deal was complete, additional officers were called in and arrested Asher.
Officers said they recovered about 8 grams of methamphetamine from the stroller.
The children were taken to the East Precinct where Children’s Protective Services was notified. CPS responded and took temporary custody of the children until their mother was able to pick them up.
Police said Asher was later booked into the King County Jail on felony drug dealing charges. Investigators said the man may be charged with other crimes as well.
