Sequim man arrested on multiple drug-related charges

SEQUIM — A 36-year-old Sequim man was arrested and booked him into the Clallam County jail on multiple felony charges relating to drugs, the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office said last week.

Detectives with the Olympic Peninsula Narcotics Enforcement Team (OPNET) on Wednesday arrested Sequim resident Joshua R. Dickinson for investigation of delivery of a controlled substance (methamphetamine and fentanyl), and possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance (methamphetamine and fentanyl), according to a sheriff’s office press release.

OPNET is also recommending a firearms enhancement to the charges, the release noted.

He remained in the Clallam County jail on Sunday on $25,000 bond.

The case began in the summer, when OPNET members used a confidential informant to purchase fentanyl pills from Dickinson on multiple occasions, the sheriff’s office said.

During one transaction, the informant also purchased methamphetamine from Dickinson.

Dickinson was armed with a firearm at the time of the purchase, the sheriff’s office said.

OPNET members arrested Dickinson in the parking lot of a hotel in the 800 block of East Washington Street without incident, according to the sheriff’s office.

Authorized by a search warrant, detectives conducting a search of Dickinson’s possessions, vehicle and hotel room located about 468 fentanyl pills (approximate street value $2,300), approximately 6.5 grams of methamphetamine (approximate street value $130), a scale, cash and a 9 mm handgun, according to the sheriff’s office.

OPNET was assisted in the arrest by the Sequim Police Department and Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.

The Olympic Peninsula Narcotics Enforcement Team (OPNET) is a multi-agency team including the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office, Sequim and Port Angeles police department, U.S. Border Patrol, Homeland Security Investigations, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and Port Townsend Police Department.
