Saul Morales Sandoval was charged the same day with three counts of delivery of a controlled substance and one count of being an alien in possession of a firearm.
Members of the North Central Washington Narcotics Task Force, Okanogan County Sheriff’s Office, sheriff’s office Special Response Team and U.S. Border Patrol executed a search warrant at Gebbers Camp No. 2, trailer No. 5.
