"Doughnuts" lead to drugs for Burien man
Spinning donuts in his cool car led to some serious consequences for a man in Burien.
Around 4:15 AM Wednesday morning, October 20th, King County Sheriff's Deputies contacted a driver performing doughnuts in his 1996 Camaro in a parking lot near the 1000 blk. of SW 128th.
As deputies interviewed the man they observed a considerable number of pills, suspected to contain fentanyl, inside his car. He was eventually placed under arrest and his car impounded at a secured location pending investigation.
Detectives with the King County Sheriff's Office SW Precinct Special Emphasis Team (SET) obtained a search warrant for the Chevrolet and recovered, in total:
• 880 Pills containing suspect fentanyl
• 27.5 Grams of crack cocaine
• Eight ( grams of heroin
• Seven (7) grams of methamphetamine
• Two stolen handguns
The suspect was booked into the King County Jail for multiple felonies including possession of a stolen gun. He remains held without bail.
Fentanyl and firearms have taken too many lives in King County. Pills and guns belong in our evidence room and not in our communities. We applaud the work of our deputies and detectives in keeping our streets safe. Wednesday's work, no doubt, saved lives.
