38 suspects arrested by Sheriff, U.S. Marshals

KITSAP — Over a three-day period at the end of March, law enforcement took 38 wanted people into custody in Kitsap County.

Of the arrests made, 11 of those people had warrants in Kitsap County.

A joint warrants unit confiscated various amounts of illegal narcotics, including cocaine, heroin, marijuana and methamphetamine. Money associated with narcotics transactions was also confiscated, along with a Suzuki 750T motorcycle linked to sales, according to a press release from the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office.

Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal Richard Ploof said the following arrests were made for warrants within Kitsap: - Donald Bolden, dangerous drugs. - Brook Cissney, heroin. - Brian Christensen, failed to appear on DUI charge, possession with intent to distribute, probation violation. - Jeramiah Christy, forgery and theft. - Gerald Manners, failed to appear for eluding, possession of marijuana, driving with suspended license. - Savannah Maxwell, dangerous drugs. - Jeffery Nordberg, possession of meth, probation violation. - David Seelow, drug possession. - Dustin Sellers, driving with suspended license, probation violation. - Jessica Smith, warrant for possession of meth. - Jason Yaegle, child support, probation violation. Other warrants included those from King, Mason, Pacific and Spokane counties. Most of the warrants were from 2010 or 2011, according to sheriff’s spokesman Deputy Scott Wilson.

Ploof said he could not identify where the arrests were made. Wilson could not identify where the arrests were made, however, he said the unit was out in rural areas.

The warrants unit included personnel from the U.S. Marshal’s Service; Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office; Mason County Sheriff’s Office; Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; state Department of Corrections; and Bainbridge Island Police Department.

“This whole thing was a cooperative effort,” Wilson said.

Though he could not provide specifics on how the arrests were made, Wilson did say the federal marshals “have capabilities in their bags of tricks that we don’t have.”

Four teams served the warrants, with eight officers in each unit, Wilson said.

No injuries were reported during the warrant arrests. The majority of narcotics confiscated were “user amounts,” except for 16 grams of heroin.
