Police investigate local marijuana distribution operation
Petersburg Police and Southeast Alaska Communities Against Drugs (SEACAD) seized 3.5 pounds of marijuana with an estimated street value of $28,000 according to a press release.
During the January 28 search of a Petersburg residence, police discovered evidence of commercial marijuana distribution, several hundred dollars and a loaded handgun.
The investigation is ongoing but charges of Misconduct Involving a Controlled Substance, Misconduct Involving Weapons and Endangering the Welfare of a Minor are expected to be filed against multiple suspects with the District Attorney’s office, according to the press release.
The investigation began two days before the search warrant was executed.
