Port Angeles


Sorry, no time for newspeople to find out what crimes “multiple felony bench warrants” are related to.


Whidbey Island

Man charged with making threat

“A sheriff’s investigator referred to the residence as a “drug house” in a search warrant application earlier this year. He wrote that numerous transients, drug users and felons had lived at the house.”

Sorry- no time for newspeople to ask what sort of drugs led to the drug house earning its reputation.

Why does it matter?

Some “drugs” are domestic, such as marijuana.

Some drugs, like heroin or cocaine, and now meth, must get past strict post 911/War on Terror security protocols, a $40.6 billion US Dept. of Homeland Security, and verification of passports/enhanced & Real IDs before they arrive in local communities.

The Drug War is based on public policy.

What methods are working? What methods are failing?

Port Angeles

Woman arrested in Peninsula drug probe pleads guilty in federal court

“Orozco-Cruz, McKean and Christman were each arrested in May following a year-long Olympic Peninsula Narcotics Enforcement Team and Drug Enforcement Administration probe into Orozco-Cruz’s drug trafficking organization, which officials believed was the primary supplier of Mexican-produced heroin and methamphetamine on the Olympic Peninsula.”

Wonder what was happening at border crossing inspections during the 12 months these folks were under investigation. Do the good guys who made the local bust notify the good guys at the border about the weak links in their process?

Has Port Angeles CBP been able to intercept any inbound meth or heroin? Even one time?

Newspeople remain silent.
