OMAK, Wash. - A lunch stop at a fast food joint in Omak turned into a fast arrest for an Okanogan County Sheriff's deputy.
According to Okanogan County Sheriff Frank Rogers, Sergeant Gene Davis went to Arby’s for lunch Tuesday afternoon.
While waiting for his order he observed two men enter the restaurant and walk up to the counter in front of him to order.
One of the men, later identified as Richard J. Marsden, 63 of Okanogan, was standing in front of Sergeant Davis.
Rogers said Sgt. Davis noticed that as Marsden was moving around a small clear baggie with a crystallized white powder began to slide out of the back of Marsden’s baseball cap. According to Sgt. Davis, as more of the baggie appeared he could tell it was crystal methamphetamine.
According to the sheriff, as the baggie began to fall out of the baseball cap Sgt. Davis took control of the baggie and Marsden.
Rogers said Marsden stated he forgot the methamphetamine was in his baseball cap because he would have used it.
Marsden was taken to the Okanogan County Jail where he was booked for Possession of Methamphetamine.
A field test was done on the substance and it tested positive for methamphetamine.
