Big Drug Bust Near Sunnyside Nets Meth, Heroin, Guns, Cash, Stolen Vehicle
Yakima county law enforcement officials and DEA agents have arrested three people in Outlook, WA after a major investigation-turned-drug bust netted meth, heroin, cash, guns and a stolen car. Outlook is a small unincorporated community 4 miles west of Sunnyside, along the Yakima Valley Highway and Interstate 82.
February 11th, Yakima County Superior Court documents show undercover agents purchased an item that tested positive for meth. The next day, another undercover agent bought heroin from one of the three people.
51-year-old Kim Dale Cornwell, 44-year-old Jerry Allen Smith, and 37-year-old Leiha Michelle Zimmer are facing a variety of charges, including possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine, heroin, weapons and stolen car charges. Cornwell, the property owner of two suspected locations on Outlook Road, is also facing unlawful use of a building for drug purpose charges.
Officials say they found rifles, meth, heroin, digital scales and other drug use tools, as well as a stolen 1998 Honda Civic between the two properties as well as a parked bus that the defendants were living in, and used to sell drugs from. Officials did not indicate the total amount of drugs found, but other reports indicate it was considerable.
All three have been scheduled to be arraigned in Yakima County Superior Court March 7.
