Task force arrest yields 15 pot plants, meth
A LEAD Task Force arrest Wednesday afternoon in Sunnyside
included the seizure of 15 marijuana plants and a small amount of
methamphetamines. According to Det. Sgt. Doug Hintze, Guadalupe Meraz was
arrested for distribution of methamphetamines and booked into Yakima County
Hintze said the case was one the task force had been
actively pursuing. He noted that after making several narcotics buys at a home
in the 300 block of Weatherwax, the task force executed a search warrant at the
location on Wednesday.
Meraz, 43, was also booked on charges of maintaining a
dwelling for drugs, which Hintze explained is a charge that comes from someone
selling drugs out of their home.
