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 jail.

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.
