During an early morning foot patrol of Legion Park on Friday, Deputies encountered four people in a tent in the park. Okanogan County Sheriff Frank Rogers said, “As they came up to the tent, which had a light on inside and they could see four subjects, one appeared to be injecting something in his arm, while one was smoking something, not tobacco and they were discussing the prices and weights for the drugs.”

Deputies contacted the four subjects and then later obtained a search warrant for the tent. In the tent Deputies found suspected heroin, suspected methamphetamine, a large amount of paraphernalia and needles. They also found a semi-automatic weapon, ammunition and $2380 in cash. Rogers said “There were several baggies packaged for sale of the suspected heroin and there were five syringes that had suspected heroin or methamphetamine in them.” He said, “All the drugs will be sent to the lab for testing.”

Deputies arrested 32-year-old David G. Ferrell, of Okanogan. Ferrell was transported to the Okanogan County Jail and booked for; Possession Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver, Heroin; Possession Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver, Methamphetamine and Possession Drug Paraphernalia.
