Marysville woman gets 9-year sentence on gun charges

SEATTLE — A Marysville woman was sentenced Monday to nine years in federal prison for trafficking guns and drugs.

Heather Chancey, also known as Heather Lee Slater, 34, was indicted in July along with three other suspects, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle.

She was convicted of conspiracy to illegally deal in firearms, being a felon in possession of a firearm and distribution of methamphetamine. Prosecutors said she sold dozens of high-powered guns without keeping records or conducting background checks.

Chancey sold guns to undercover police officers multiple times in the parking lot of the Tulalip Resort Casino, as well as other parking lots in Marysville and Arlington, according to prosecutors.

Chancey also has a 2001 conviction for possessing meth.
