In February they began to investigate what they said was a poly-drug trafficking ring. The ring was selling what officials said were pound qualities of 'ice' meth and heroin, and several undercover purchases were set up and made, all within 1,000 feet of school areas which is an additional violation.
According to the Grant County Sheriff's Office:
"In June 2021, as a result of the multi-state collaborative investigation, INET seized about 22 pounds of methamphetamine, around one ounce of heroin, over $16,000 in US currency, and two firearms, one of which was stolen.
Arrested in this case: 43-year-old Veronica Arredondo of South Canterbury Lane in Moses Lake. Charges related to this drug bust are pending."
The investigation continues, but officials didn't release any other details.
