John D. Davis was arrested Thursday morning after OPNET developed probable cause that he sold methamphetamine on four occasions in October, team supervisor Jason Viada said.
Davis’ case will be reviewed by the Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office for possible charges. He could face additional penalties because of a school bus stop fewer than 200 feet from his home, Viada said.
Davis was not listed on the Clallam County jail roster as of Friday afternoon.
OPNET officials expected to find several others on the property when they served the search warrant, Viada said.
The drug enforcement team was assisted in serving the warrant by officers from federal, state and local agencies, Viada said.
Two of the officers were marine interdiction agents from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which often patrols the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The agents found two people concealed within a boat that was on blocks behind the residence.
One person inside the boat was wanted for a local warrant and was arrested along with Davis.
“There were a total of six people detained in and near the home, and Davis was one of those people arrested,” Viada said.
Viada said Davis is the only one likely to be charged.
“This incident is a good example of why law enforcement supervisors are trained to prepare for operations by summoning additional resources just in case they are needed,” Viada said.
