Police Find Drugs, Lots of Cash At Scene of Lake City Shooting

We’ve just obtained police records related to a July shooting in Lake City (feels like forever ago, huh?) that say SPD recovered baggies of methamphetamine and a significant amount of cash from a home where a man was shot in the jaw.

Patrol officers and a SWAT team responded to 140th and 30th Ave NE around 4:15pm on July 2nd and found a man screaming in the street, bleeding from a gunshot wound to his mouth.

Police located the man’s home nearby, and found smears of blood everywhere. Officers located a scoped rifle in the yard of the home, and found security cameras mounted the back of the house.

A SWAT team cleared the home and found “methamphetamine in baggies and a large amount of American currency.”

Police records say the man shot in the incident has previously been arrested for dealing meth.

Officers seized the cash, the drugs, and various drug paraphernalia from the man’s home, according to a search warrant.
