Moses Lake woman arrested and 15 ounces of heroin seized in drug raid


A Moses Lake woman was arrested and more than 15 ounces of heroin seized in a two-home drug raid this week.

The heroin is reportedly worth about $42,000 dollars, the Grant County Sheriff’s Office said.

A county narcotics team and Moses Lake Police took part in the raids in the Mae Valley area Tuesday.

They arrested 48-year-old Jona R. Zeigler.

A second raid that night resulted in no arrests but it was the second time in less than a month that home had been raided.

It was part of a multi-residence federal drug operation July 16.

Two federal agents suffered minor injuries in that raid.

The suspect, Patrick Pearson, shot himself but survived.

Zeigler is Peterson’s sister.
