A man has been arrested for drug trafficking after police found him passed out in the driver’s seat of a vehicle in Green Lake last week with a half kilogram of methamphetamine and over 100 grams of heroin in his possession.
Seattle Police discovered the man after a witness called 911 last Thursday to report a 1969 Cadillac Deville stopped in the southbound lane near N. 80th St and Ashworth Ave N. with the driver asleep behind the wheel.
When police arrived, they roused the 42-year-old male driver and found him under the influence of a narcotic. Officer Alyssa Mustain arrested him for driving under the influence and found 115 grams of heroin and 102 grams of methamphetamine after searching the suspect. She then uncovered another 517 grams of methamphetamine inside the vehicle.
The suspect is now in King County Jail for multiple drug charges.
