The Lewis County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 24-year-old Winlock woman and referred two Longview residents to the prosecutor’s office for potential charges after serving a search warrant on Thursday, Aug. 17, in the 400 block of state Route 505 in Winlock and discovering 112 fentanyl pills, just under 4 ounces of fentanyl powder and other items, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.
Macy Tayler Isabelle White, described by the sheriff’s office as a “mid-level fentanyl dealer,” was arrested and booked into the Lewis County Jail for possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, delivery of a controlled substance and maintaining a building for drug purposes.
Shaun Lee Elliott, 34, and Heather Nicole Scheiber, 30, both of Longview, were referred on charges for additional control substance violations, according to the sheriff’s office.
Along with the fentanyl and fentanyl powder, sheriff’s office detectives also located drug paraphernalia, U.S. currency, scales and “packaging materials commonly associated with drug distribution,” according to the release.
The investigation began when detectives received information that illegal narcotics were being sold out of a travel trailer behind a residence, according to the sheriff’s office.
“This was excellent work by our deputies,” Sheriff Rob Snaza stated in the release. “Our agency continues to strictly enforce controlled substance violations. With recent changes under RCW 69.50.4013, taking effect this week, we will once again have the ability to arrest individuals for simple possession of dangerous drugs regardless of prior referrals.”
