Police Seize Narcotics in Investigation at Dearborn Encampment

Seattle police on Wednesday arrested seven people and seized 19 grams of crack cocaine from a multi-room tent on Dearborn Street, between freeway ramps for Interstate 90 and Interstate 5.

Police learned individuals in the tent were selling cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine, and had set up a waiting room for customers inside one partitioned area in the tent. There was also an area in the tent for the use of recently-purchased narcotics. Police have also responded to several reports of gunfire in the area over the past week.

On Wednesday, SWAT, South and East Precinct’s Anti-Crime Teams and the Major Crimes Taskforce served a warrant on the large multi-room tent in the encampment and arrested seven people for warrants and narcotics possession.
