Police suspected neighbor of dealing drugs in Marysville

The suspect was busted at his house across the street from the Marysville Police Department.

MARYSVILLE — A Marysville man’s neighbors confronted him this week when they came to suspect he’d been selling drugs out of his home. Those neighbors happen to carry guns and badges.

The man recently had moved into a blue one-story house in the 7200 block of 43rd Avenue NE, said Cmdr. Mark Thomas, of the Marysville Police Department.

The house is directly across the street from the police station, within sight of the lobby doors. Detectives had been watching suspected drug activity at the home for weeks. They were about to serve a search warrant on the address around 10 a.m. Thursday, when the man walked outside and started up a Cadillac Escalade.

An officer tried to pull over the SUV. But down the street the driver rammed into the push bar of the patrol car, according to police. The Escalade drove back toward the house, where another officer was waiting.

Police ordered the man at gunpoint to surrender. He did. In his pockets, officers found needles and a spoon. The man, 26, was arrested for investigation of selling methamphetamine, attempting to elude law enforcement and possessing drug paraphernalia.

No one was hurt. Streets were blocked for less than a half-hour, as the warrant was served.

Police arrested a woman inside the home, too. On a coffee table investigators found a burnt spoon, tinfoil and needles. A small baggie of crystals weighing 0.02 ounces was found in a box, according to police. They field-tested positive for meth. More needles and burnt tinfoil were found in the home.

A strip of Suboxone was recovered near the man’s wallet. The drug is intended to treat opiate addiction.
