On October 30th, deputies with the Pacific County Drug Task Force served a narcotics related search warrant upon a residence located near 250th and Z Street in Ocean Park. Also assisting with the service of the warrant were members of the Grays Harbor County Drug Task Force and the Clatsop County Interagency Narcotics Task Force. A male subject, identified as Sebastian Garcia-Castro, age 53, was arrested in conjunction with the investigation that led to the request for the search warrant.
The search warrant was granted as a result of a lengthy and ongoing investigation involving the trafficking of methamphetamine by Sebastian Garcia-Castro. During the searching and arresting process, investigators located a digital weight scale that is believed to have been used to weigh individual amounts of methamphetamine for sale, a small amount of methamphetamine, approximately 1,000.00 in cash and several firearms which included an illegal sawed off rifle. At least one of the firearms serial numbers had been tampered with.
Sheriff Scott Johnson stated, "We are very pleased with the cooperative effort put forth by all agencies involved." "This investigation is a good example of why we have agreements in place with other agencies to share resources."
Sebastian Garcia-Castro was booked into the Pacific County Jail on four counts of delivery of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, unlawful use of a building for drugs and possession of an unlawful firearm.
