I’m sure the officers just though it would be a typical warrant-based traffic stop when they pulled over José Miranda Jimenez, 27, of Quincy. They’d pick him up and take him in on the warrant, and that would be it. Little did they know it would lead to the massive drug bust! $1.2 million in drugs were allegedly found in Jiminez’s vehicle when he was pulled over Oct. 5. About five pounds of heroin and three pounds of meth!! Jimenez is  facing charges of possession with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine and possession with intent to distribute one kilogram or more of heroin!

The bust was a result of a join task force between detectives from the Grant County Sheriff’s Office, Moses Lake Police Department, Ephrata Police Department and Washington State Patrol called Interagency Narcotics Enforcement Team (INET). It’s the biggest bust of theirs to date, and a massive success in getting a LOT of drugs off the street.
