Ballard Crime Watch: Heroin, meth swallowed by burglar
Burglary arrested, suspected of dealing heroin and meth
Police arrested a young woman after she attempted to break into a home in North Crown Hill on March 26. A neighbor called police after he saw a white female wearing a dark jacket and blue jeans leave his neighbor’s house. He followed her for a while and led police to her location. Police took the woman into custody and brought her back to the complainant for a show-up identification. The complainant positively identified her. The suspect was carrying a backpack and a lock box. The lockbox contained small amounts of heroin, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. Her backpack contained at least 98 little red and black baggies and a small scale. Police believe the packaging materials and scale showed intent to distribute the suspected drugs in her backpack. At the North Precinct the suspect complained of stomach issues and told police that she ingested large amounts of heroin and methamphetamine before the arrest. She was taken to Harborview Medical Center and later booked at King County Jail for warrants, burglary and drug charges.
