Arlington Police seize cash and methamphetamine in arrest Arlington police have seized over $2,300 in cash and almost 60 grams of methamphetamine in the recent arrest of a 39 year-old Arlington man. At approximately 11:50 p.m. on Tuesday, February 27, 2018 an Arlington Police Officer on routine patrol noticed a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot in the 3100 block of Smokey Point Drive in Arlington. Three individuals were in a vehicle parked in front of a business that had already closed for the evening. The officer contacted the individuals and noted that one of them, the 39 year-old Arlington man, had money and a baggy visible in his pants pocket. During the officer’s investigation, the officer asked if the man would show what was in the baggy and he displayed a Ziploc containing a large quantity of what appeared to be methamphetamine. The man was arrested on possession of a controlled substance and later booked into Snohomish County Jail. The other two individuals were interviewed and released. The suspect had over $2,300 in cash in his possession at the time of his arrest. The money has been seized for forfeiture as proceeds from illegal drug sales. The methamphetamine was weighed at the Arlington Police Station and found to be 58 grams. The street value of this quantity of methamphetamine is estimated at $1,800. Arlington Police have seized the vehicle for a search warrant to continue the investigation in this case and additional charges may be filed.

Arlington Public Schools and Arlington Police provide update on Monday’s incident at Presidents Elementary School. (Arlington, WA) – On Friday, Jan. 19, Presidents Elementary administrators received information regarding an employee’s threatening comments made to another staff member. Arlington Public Schools district administrators began investigating immediately. Based on the initial investigation, administrators contacted police on Friday. The employee was placed on administrative leave, turned in his keys and identification, and was escorted from the school. Arlington Police were standing by to respond if needed. District administrators contacted the employee over the weekend to set a time to continue the district’s investigation with the employee and his union representative. District administration was also in contact with the employee who reported the threat. On Monday, Jan. 22, the school resource officer was at Presidents to meet with administrators. Based on information received from the employee’s spouse just before the start of school, Presidents was placed into a modified lockdown. This means access to the school was limited to the front doors. At no point was the employee on the school campus. The employee was located and arrested by law enforcement at his home. The district and Arlington Police are working closely to monitor the situation. “We appreciate our families’ understanding as we work through this difficult situation,” said Arlington Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Chrys Sweeting. “I want to assure the families and employees that we take threats seriously and prioritize the safety of our students and staff. We have a great partnership with the Arlington Police Department and I am thankful for their support during this situation.” “My children attend school in this district and I have every confidence in the district’s ability to keep them safe,” said Police Chief Jonathan Ventura. “The district and the police department are always looking for ways to improve safety and we will continue to work together to make sure students and staff are safe.”

Changing the paradigm because we know what doesn’t work. Thank you Sheriff Trenary!
