(Quincy, WA) – Three Quincy men are in jail on drug charges after Grant County’s Interagency Narcotics Enforcement Team served two search warrants yesterday in the City of Quincy.

As part of a four-month-long drug trafficking investigation, INET raided a home at 125 D Street Northeast, finding and seizing suspected heroin and drug paraphernalia. Alberto Nunez, 34, was arrested on charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

INET then raided a home at 117 H Street Southeast where over five ounces of suspected marijuana was found and seized along with drug paraphernalia and implements of sale. A semi-automatic firearm and a small amount of prescription pills were also seized. Armando Herrera, 22, and Toribio Hernandez, 36 were arrested and are lodged in the Grant County Jail on charges of possession of marijuana (over 40 grams) with the intent to deliver, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Herrera is also charged with possession of a legend drug without a prescription.

Over $4000 in U.S. currency and a 2002 Acura were confiscated during the operations. Quincy Police and Grant County Sheriff’s Deputies assisted with the raids.

“With these raids comes a small reduction in dangerous drugs circulating through our communities,” said Sheriff Tom Jones. “I applaud INET and the partnering agencies which continue to do a thorough and comprehensive job stopping drug trafficking in Grant County.”

INET is comprised of officers from the Grant County Sheriff’s Office, Moses Lake Police Department, Quincy Police Department and the Washington State Patrol.
