Issaquah police officers and a special operations team arrested two men June 21 for selling cocaine at downtown Issaquah bars.
Issaquah officers and the Coalition of Small Police Agencies Special Operations Team arrested a 38-year-old Issaquah man and a 31-year-old Burien man for possession and sale of cocaine at about 9:30 p.m. Officers used a coalition drug dog in the investigation.
The arrests culminated a six-month investigation by Issaquah police. Investigators said the men bought and sold narcotics at the Rollin’ Log Tavern and H&H Tavern.
The case remains open and under investigation by the Issaquah Police Department. Officers expect to make additional arrests.
Established a decade ago, the Coalition of Small Police Agencies includes Issaquah, Snoqualmie and other King County cities. The group includes 14 police forces, and specializes in narcotics detection and other tasks.
