Neighbor Tip Leads to Pot Bust Near School | Crime
Neighbors suspecting illegal activity tipped off deputies to a drug house in the Larson housing area north of Moses Lake. Thursday night, deputies raided the home less than 700 feet from North Elementary School.
Deputies from Grant County's Interagency Narcotics Enforcement Team hit the home at 1230 Arlington Drive around 9:45 Thursday night. INET seized 147 grams of marijuana, including 16 grams portioned and packaged in sandwich bags.
Detectives arrested Jake Avery Allen, 23, and Sabrina M. Pool, 27. They were arrested on suspicion of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver in a school zone. Allen was booked into the jail; Pool was released so she could care for her children.
“We really appreciate and encourage the public to let us know when they think something is not right in their neighborhood,” said Sheriff Tom Jones. “In this case, INET was able to stop a suspected drug house near a school, and I applaud them for their work.”
