MLT Police Recover Two 'Ghost Guns'

The Mountlake Terrace Police Department recently recovered over 100 fentanyl pills and two untraceable handguns known as “ghost guns.”


Also discovered was $6,972 in cash, and an undisclosed amount of methamphetamines. 


The investigation began March 28, when a driveby shooting occurred at a home in the 4500 block of 224th Place SW. No one was injured.


Detectives identified a 34-year-old suspect and the vehicle he was believed to be driving during the shooting. The man allegedly targeted the house.


The investigation unfolded over a number of weeks. With the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Violent Offenders Task Force, the suspect was arrested and the vehicle was seized. 


After officers obtained a search warrant for the vehicle, the money, drugs and firearms were collected as evidence. The suspect was booked into the Snohomish County Jail.
