Kingston pot peddler popped twice in 24 hours

NORTH KITSAP — A 21-year-old Kingston man arrested earlier this week for dealing marijuana was arrested again, hours after his release from jail, for dealing marijuana.

The suspect explained that he found the 60 grams of marijuana and a scale "on the side of the road as he was walking home from the jail," according to Kitsap County Sheriff's Office reports.

Deputies first arrested the man at the Texaco gas station at 26605 NE State Highway 104 Wednesday after following up a domestic violence case. Deputies also noted they had received reports of the man's van involvement in apparent drug deals in the Port Gamble area.

During the stop at the gas station, deputies found in the man's possession paraphernalia, $500 in cash and a small amount of marijuana, reports say.

He was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and booked into the Kitsap County jail.

Deputies approached the same man Thursday afternoon after spotting him speeding in Indianolia, less than 24 hours after being arrested for the first time.

The deputies asked for identification. The man said he had none, but was still wearing his jail identification bracelet.

Upon searching them man's van, deputies found slightly more than 60 grams of marijuana, the reports say.

The man was booked into the Kitsap County jail for investigation of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
