SUQUAMISH, Wash. - A man has been charged in Kitsap County for possession of a controlled substance after he made the mistake of attempting to retrieve a bag containing methamphetamine from the Suquamish Casino's lost-and-found.
The casino's security officer alerted the Kitsap County Sheriff's Office when the bag was found to contain three knives, a bag of white crystals identified as meth, some jewelry, a small digital scale and some blood pressure medication.
The 33-year-old Seattle man's identification was also in the bag, which was turned in by a customer.
As a deputy was speaking with the security officer this week, the man came up and told him he was looking for his missing black bag. The man confirmed the bag was his and a deputy placed him under arrest.
The man was also charged with possession of prescription drugs without a prescription and possession of a dangerous weapon.
The man's bail was set at $40,000.
