Four Arrested in Pasco Drug Investigation
Early this morning, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Tri-Cities Metro Drug Task Force (MDTF) executed three federal search warrants in Pasco, Washington.

Four men are in police custody and will make their initial appearance on Monday at 2:00 p.m. before U.S. Magistrate Judge James P. Hutton in U.S District Court in Yakima.
“We in the Tri-Cities are fortunate to have such strong partnerships with local and federal law enforcement,” stated Chief Metzger.
The following agencies provided significant assistance in today’s enforcement action: Pasco Police Department, Kennewick Police Department, Richland Police Department, West Richland Police Department, Washington State Patrol, Franklin County Sheriff’s Office and the Benton County Sheriff’s Office.
