Law enforcement agencies from throughout the region converged Monday to serve warrants on three Polson homes as part of a drug investigation. The daylong operation resulted in the arrest of 13 adults, according to a Polson Police Department press release issued Tuesday morning.
Police said the three houses were identified as connected to the use and distribution of methamphetamine and fentanyl, and children were living in one of the homes. At least two of the houses are in the residential area near O’Malley Park and Pomajevich Field in central Polson.
“We are committed to drug endangered children, and to that end, residential search warrants were executed to safely remove these children from an atrocious environment,” Capt. George Simpson said in the press release.
Authorities found suspected methamphetamine and fentanyl, along with firearms and drug paraphernalia. Flathead Tribal game wardens also are investigating possible wildlife violations related to decaying wildlife parts that were seized.
