Fury, a King County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) drug detection K9, is rightfully proud of this bust. His specialized detection skills helped sniff out the perps. 

Detectives from multiple King County Sheriff’s Office Special Emphasis Teams (SET), with the support of TAC-30
(SWAT) and Bomb Disposal Units (BDU), executed a search recently in southeast King County.

The work was the result of a months-long investigation into narcotics distribution and firearms-related crimes. The results in this case are impressive and include the seizure of 3.6 pounds of heroin, 5.5 pounds of methamphetamine, 6,471 fentanyl pills and 21.7 grams of crack cocaine. The street value of these narcotics is estimated to be $250,000.

They also recovered 14 firearms, including multiple handguns, shotguns and rifles, which is equally impactful.

The suspect in this case was booked into the King County Jail for multiple felonies including being a felon in possession of stolen firearms.

We congratulate all of our detectives for their work. Every gun, gram and pill the Sheriff’s Office recovers is potentially a life saved. With overdoses and gun violence touching too many of our neighbors, we know this case made White Center, Burien, Skyway, Maple Valley, Covington, and other communities throughout south King County safer.
