Drug bust nabs three men

A drug bust outside a South Kitsap fast food restaurant led to the arrest of three men by the West Sound Narcotics Enforcement Team (WestNet) on Jan. 28.

According to a report by WestNet, brothers Sacramento Perez-Ceja, 28, and Custodio Perez-Ceja, 23, were charged with three counts of possession a controlled substance with intent to manufacture or deliver in Kitsap County Superior Court on Jan. 29, while Adan Madriz Navarette, 20, was charged two counts of delivery of a controlled substance.

The Perez-Ceja brothers are in Kitsap County jail under a $250,000 bail each, while Navarette’s bail is $100,000.

WestNet detectives reported in January they watched a police operative purchase cocaine from the two brothers three times — two times in Thurston County and the other at the restaurant, located at Sedgwick Road and State Highway 16.

Charging documents stated detectives recovered more than 4 ounces of cocaine during the arrests.The brothers told detectives they came to South Kitsap to meet friends, while Navarette said he didn’t know the brothers were selling drugs.

”“The street value of all the cocaine seized from the three suspects is approximately $3,000,” said Deputy Scott Wilson, Kitsap Sheriff’s Office spokesman.
