Update: 7 arrested in DEA raids in Grays Harbor; wrong home hit
The U.S. attorney's office in Seattle says seven people were arrested Wednesday in six raids led by a Drug Enforcement Administration task force on suspected methamphetamine smugglers on the Quinault Indian Reservation and other rural parts of Grays Harbor County.
During the raids, agents and officers broke down the door on the wrong home. The resident told KBKW she was taking a shower when armed agents broke in and forced her outside in a bath robe.
She later found out the search warrant had a different address than her home, where she lives with her 2-year-old daughter and mother. Her broken door was replaced by Wednesday evening.
At other locations, agents seized several guns, nearly three pounds of black tar heroin and liquid methamphetamine similar to the drug found at a meth lab in Stockton, Calif., with ties to Mexican cartels.
The U.S. attorney's office says the 34-year-old Amanda Park man suspected of leading the organization attempted to hide the drug trafficking with the operation of a cedar shingle mill. He and two others are charged by indictment with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and money laundering.
