MOSES LAKE — A Moses Lake woman was arrested Wednesday following a police raid on her home in the 300 block of South Gumwood Street after police allegedly uncovered an elaborate scheme to trade drugs for food stamps.
Sonda Safford, 42, was booked into Grant County Jail Wednesday on charges of second degree possession of stolen property and violation of the controlled substance act.
The investigation began after a tip from a citizen alerting police to a possible scheme to trade narcotics for EBT cards.
After a six hour raid involving more than a half-dozen officers, police recovered over an ounce of meth, over an ounce of powder cocaine, lesser quantities of heroin and crack cocaine, 19 Suboxone strips and hundreds of illegally possessed prescription pills. Police also recovered nine EBT cards.
