Moses Lake traffic stop leads officials to $1.5 million worth of drugs

Associated Press

MOSES LAKE – A traffic stop and drug bust led Moses Lake police to serve seven warrants that netted $1.2 million in meth, heroin and marijuana.

Grant County Sheriff Tom Jones says it was the largest drug seizure in the history of the Interagency Narcotics Enforcement Team.

Police stopped Josi Miranda on Oct. 5 and allegedly found nearly eight pounds of methamphetamine and heroin. He was charged in federal court and had his initial appearance last week.

That led to additional busts of homes in the county where officials found netted 25 more pounds of meth, seven pounds of heroin, and 40 pounds of processed marijuana.

Arrested during this series of investigations was Maria Chavez Diaz, 27, of Moses Lake.
