Following a detailed investigation by the Eastside Narcotics Task Force (ENTF) and the Kirkland Police Department, one suspect was taken into custody at approximately 6:45 a.m. today in the 8200 block of NE 142nd Street Kirkland, WA.

With assistance from Kirkland Patrol Officers, Detectives and the North Sound Metro Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team, ENTF arrested an adult male for Violation of the Uniform Controlled Substance Act (VUCSA) Trafficking in Methamphetamine. The arrest was made in connection with several investigations conducted by ENTF detectives as well as information from Patrol Officers and neighbors in the area.  Detectives recovered evidence at the residence which should aid them in their investigation of the occupants of this residence. Three additional adult males were located inside the house, detained and identified.  They were subsequently released and not charged with any crimes at this time. 

ENTF works collaborative investigations with nearby agencies and regional partners; in this case the North Sound Metro SWAT Team, which includes Lynnwood, Edmonds, Monroe, Bothell, Kirkland and Lake Forest Park Police Departments.
