Juneau Police along with state and federal authorities made two arrests in connection with a drug bust last week.
According to a JPD press release, the case started Thursday when a suspicious package bound for the Capital City was flagged by a U.S. Postal inspector. A search found about six ounces of methamphetamine inside. The package was turned over to JPD’s Drug Enforcement Unit, and delivered without drugs to an address in the 9400 block of Moraine Way.
On Saturday, 43-year-old Juneau resident Darrell Dawson was arrested after attempting to pick up the package. Police say Dawson had about 4.8 grams of meth on him at the time of his arrest.
Police subsequently served a search warrant on Dawson’s Village Street shop, where 24-year-old Nicholas DeTemple was arrested for having a set of brass knuckles.
Dawson has been charged with Misconduct Involving Controlled Substances in the 3rd and 4th Degree. He’s being held at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center on no bail.
DeTemple is charged with Misconduct Involving Weapons in the 4th Degree. He’s being held at Lemon Creek on $500 bail.
JPD says it was assisted in the case by Alaska State Troopers, the FBI, the U.S. Coast Guard Investigative Service, and Southeast Alaska Chiefs Against Drugs.
