Two people have been arrested for bringing illegal drugs into Juneau.
Twenty-two year old Katrina Costello and Orion Seal, age 29, were apprehended on Wednesday for transporting 61 grams of what officers believe is heroin, 30 Oxycodone pills, 15 grams of hashish, and nine strips of suboxone, a drug that is taken by dissolving strips on the tongue.
According to a news release received Friday, Juneau police worked with federal officers on the investigation, which led to Seal’s arrest when he arrived at the Juneau International Airport to pick up Costello, who was carrying the drugs.
Police say Seal allegedly arranged for the importation of the drugs and was using Costello as the “mule.”
The two have been charged with misconduct involving a controlled substance in the second degree, which is a class A felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a fine up to $250,000.
