Drug dealer arrested in police station bathroom Staff

EVERETT, Wash. – Maybe he really believed in the phrase “Keep your friends close. Keep your enemies closer.

A 24-year-old Everett man was arrested Wednesday morning for allegedly trying to sell Oxycodone and other drugs inside a stall in the men’s bathroom at the Everett Police Station.

According to Everett Police, a plain-clothed police sergeant and an officer were in the bathroom when they heard the man answer his cell phone and try to make the deal.

Police say the sergeant continued to listen in as the man made several other phone calls in an apparent attempt to sell the drugs.

The man was confronted by officers as he left the bathroom, where police say he admitted to trying to sell the drugs and handed them over.

Police say the man apparently thought he was at a probation office, not a police station.

The suspect was booked into the Snohomish County Jail.
