SEATTLE - A 42-year-old man was arrested in Seattle's Greenwood neighborhood on Tuesday after police said he dropped heroin onto the ground during a routine traffic stop.
In a blotter post, police said they pulled the man over around 1 p.m. in the 9000 block of Greenwood Avenue North.
"As officers approached the vehicle the driver exited the car and dropped a large gumball-sized baggie of black tar heroin," police said.
Police took the man into custody and said they saw a handgun, cash and safe on the floor of the vehicle.
The officers on scene applied for a search warrant for the car and later found a shotgun, two pistols, 2.2 grams of cocaine, 8.5 grams of methamphetamine, and $831 in cash, officials said.
Police said the man was later booked into the King County Jail.
Police arrested a 42-year-old man in Greenwood last week and later seized a collection of guns and drugs, after he climbed out of his car during a routine traffic stop and dropped the ball of heroin onto the ground in front of police.https://t.co/8bXEbbed7K pic.twitter.com/zlUfjWjW1K— Seattle Police Dept.
