Three Ketchikan men were arrested Monday after local law enforcement allegedly found them in possession of an estimated $100,000 worth of methamphetamine.
According to the Ketchikan Police Department, police and Alaska State Troopers conducted a field check at the request of the state probation office on a 53-year-old man on felony probation.
Officers went to the Ward Cove area where they found the man, along with a 58-year-old man, also on probation, and a 55-year-old man who was on court-ordered conditions of release.
Officers found paraphernalia and what appeared to be drugs in the men’s possession. Police obtained a search warrant, and later found a container of plastic baggies, each containing a crystal substance that police say field-tested positive for methamphetamine.
The approximate weight of the drugs was 205 grams, with an estimated street value of a little more than $100,000.
The 53-year-old man faces a felony drug charge and a charge of violating his probation. The 55-year-old man also faces a felony drug charge, and was charged with violating his conditions of release.
The 58-year-old man was charged with violating probation.
The investigation is continuing.
