Burien Police assist in Des Moines, Kent drug bust
Burien Police assisted in a drug bust last Thursday (April 25) at homes in Des Moines and Kent that netted police 1/4 Kilo of cocaine and over $6,000 in cash.
Detectives and TAC-30 from the King County Sheriff’s Office, along with detectives from the Burien P.D. served the warrants around 2 p.m. Thursday.
The Des Moines house was in the 27400 block of 16 Ave South (map below), and the Kent addresses included the 900 block of 3rd Ave N. and the 500 block of Alvord Ave N.
Detectives said the case started in Burien about four months ago, and the investigation led them to the houses in Kent and Des Moines.
A man living at the Kent house on 3rd Ave North was arrested for ‘Possession with Intent to Sale’ and booked into the King County Jail. Detectives said that most of the cocaine and money was found at that address.
The case will be forwarded to the prosecutor for review and the filing of charges.
