KETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) — Alaska State Troopers have seized methamphetamine welded inside heavy equipment that was shipped to Ketchikan.
A 53-year-old Ketchikan man was charged with a felony drug count in the case.
Officers from the troopers' statewide drug enforcement unit, Ketchikan police and the Coast Guard took part in the investigation at a Ketchikan freight carrier.
Troopers say a drug dog Sunday located the methamphetamine welded inside a hydraulic engine hoist shipped from Seattle. Officers seized nearly 4 ounces (111 grams) of the drug.
Officers Monday arrested Richard Anderson after he took possession of the cargo shipment.
