$30,000 of heroin and methamphetamine seized from two Moscow homes


Detectives from the Quad City Drug Task Force thwarted a large supplier of drugs to the Palouse region last Friday, arresting two Moscow residents on multiple counts of drug trafficking.

Lee J. Thang, 42, and Jeanie L. Lee, 30, both of Moscow, are alleged to have been supplying the region with large amounts of heroin and methamphetamine since Jan 2014.

They are now booked at Latah County Jail on 16 counts related to trafficking, delivery and conspiracy to deliver illegal drugs, according to a Moscow police department press release.

After executing search warrants on the 300 block of Susan drive and the 200 block of C street downtown, detectives seized approximately seven ounces of heroin and 13 ounces of methamphetamine, along with a handgun and thousands of dollars in cash.

The narcotics hold an estimated street value of 30,000 dollars, according to the press release.

The QCDTF is a government-funded coalition that fights the use and distribution of narcotics in Washington and Idaho counties.
