MARYSVILLE, Wash. — Marysville police said a large amount of drugs, a handgun and thousands of dollars in cash were found in a car where the driver had been slumped over the wheel.
On Feb. 25, an officer was dispatched to a report of a driver slumped over in a running Jaguar.
He arrived and found an unconscious man in the driver’s seat. Once awakened, the man provided his driver’s license and admitted he might have an arrest warrant.
After a discussion with the officer, the man got out and was arrested for his warrant.
During a search of the man, he was found to have $2,726 in cash.
When the officer went to lock the Jaguar, he saw a handgun on the driver’s seat where the man had been sitting.
The Jaguar was impounded, and the officer obtained a search warrant to recover the gun and related accessories. Once the warrant was granted, the officer discovered the gun was reported stolen out of Everett.
While the officer was searching a backpack that was in the car for other guns, he found a large container of what he believed to be methamphetamine, according to a post on the Marysville Police Department’s Facebook page.
Because the search warrant was for firearms and accessories, the officer stopped and applied for a second search warrant for evidence of possession of narcotics and the intent to sell.
Once the second warrant was granted, the officer found a total of $35,654 in cash, about 5,100 blue M30 oxycodone pills, 3 pounds of methamphetamine, 1½ pounds of black tar heroin and a quarter pound of cocaine, the police department’s post said.
The approximate street value of the drugs is $200,000.
