Port Angeles man accused of intent to sell over $48,000 worth of drugs

Investigated for multiple counts of delivery

PORT ANGELES — A Port Angeles man is being held on $250,000 bond after he was arrested for investigation of sales of illegal drug sales with an estimated street value of $48,200.

Anthony C. Eacrett, 54, was booked into the Clallam County jail on Monday for investigation of five counts of delivery of a controlled substance (methamphetamine and fentanyl), and four counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance (methamphetamine, fentanyl, heroin and cocaine).

The fifth count of delivery of a controlled substance stems from Eacrett allegedly mailing a methamphetamine smoking device containing methamphetamine to a friend out of state, according to Brian King, Olympic Peninsula Narcotics Enforcement Team (OPNET) commander and chief criminal deputy for the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office.

Eacrett was arrested with the assistance of the Port Angeles Police Department in the parking lot of the strip mall at 603 S. Lincoln St. in Port Angeles without incident, King said.

A search of Eacrett’s vehicle and possessions, authorized by a search warrant, resulted in detectives seizing about 400 fentanyl pills, 50 grams of methamphetamine, nearly 25 grams of heroin and 20 grams of cocaine, cash and a digital scale, King said.

The drugs had a street value of about $8,200.

OPNET detectives said they also served a search warrant at Eacrett’s Port Angeles residence and found another 4,000 fentanyl pills, estimated at $40,000 street value, along with $1,500 in cash.

Investigation began this summer, when OPNET used a confidential informant to purchase fentanyl pills and methamphetamine from Eacrett on two occasions, according to the probable cause statement.

Port Angeles police conducted a traffic stop on Eacrett’s vehicle and he was arrested, the probable cause statement said.

It added that Eacrett admitted selling controlled substances and said there were illegal drugs in his car and home.

The suspected drugs were tested and found to be positive.

OPNET is a multi-agency team dedicated to the enforcement of narcotics laws in Clallam and Jefferson counties. Agencies dedicating investigators to the team include the Clallam and Jefferson county sheriff’s offices; Port Angeles, Sequim and Port Townsend police departments; U.S. Border Patrol and Homeland Security Investigations.
