About five ounces of methamphetamine and $12,000 cash were among items seized in two drug busts in Mason and Pierce counties this week.

On Monday, the Mason County Sheriff’s Office Special Operations Group, along with law enforcement officers from the Squaxin Island Tribal Police Department, the state Department of Corrections and the U.S. Marshal Service, responded to a residence in the Lake Limerick area of Mason County. Officers were seeking two people with outstanding arrest warrants.

Two people were apprehended regarding their warrants and a third was arrested for drug-related charges.

During the arrests, 3.6 ounces of methamphetamine (street value of $8,000) and nearly $12,000 in cash were confiscated.

The investigation led officers to a residence in Pierce County, where the results of a search warrant found two stolen vehicles, a stolen AR-15 rifle and 1.5 ounces of methamphetamine (street value of $2,500).
