Lacey Police Seize Gun, Drugs and $70,000 in Cash Over the Weekend


A check of a suspicious circumstance turned into a major discovery for Lacey police.

About 3 a.m. Sunday, police were dispatched to an apartment building in southeast Lacey after a report of a broken window, Sgt. Shannon Barnes said.

When police arrived, they determined that a female resident, who had locked herself out of an apartment, had broken a window to get back in the unit.

But in addition to the broken window, police also found $70,000 in cash, at least one stolen gun and several drugs, including cocaine, mushrooms, oxycodone and methamphetamine.

The 21-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of possessing a stolen firearm and four counts of felony possession of narcotics with intent to deliver.
