Drug investigations nab six South Kitsap residents
Eight people — six from South Kitsap — were arrested and booked into the Kitsap County Jail last week during the course of on-going investigations by the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office and West Sound Narcotics Enforcement Team (WestNET).
According to Deputy Scott Wilson, KCSO spokesman, the investigations focused on two primary activities that typically are interwoven and connected for those involved in the drug underworld — narcotics possession and distribution, along with burglary investigations that lead to possessing stolen property.
Wilson said last week, KCSO detectives served search warrants on one residence, three storage units and three vehicles in South Kitsap. Ten firearms (three reported stolen), along with power tools, cameras, household items, soft body armor and firearm silencers — all reported stolen in various burglaries were recovered, according to reports.
Deputies arrested and charged the following South Kitsap residents on May 20:
• Shane Michael Grinde, 35, of Port Orchard, for delivery of meth; $100,000 bail.
• Samanta L. Bernier, 20, of Port Orchard, for possessing stolen property, $5,000 bail.
• Joseph Ryan Oddo, 31, of Port Orchard, for possession of meth, delivery of meth, unlawful possession of firearm. He was released May 22 by court order.
• Katrina Mae Marina Oddo, 32, of Port Orchard, for possession of meth. She was released May 21 by court order.
• Donald John McKay, 32, of Port Orchard, for possession of meth with intent to distribute, residential burglary, unlawful possession of firearm and possession of stolen firearm. He was arrested May 21 and bail was set at $500,000.
In a separate unrelated investigation, KCSO and WestNET detectives, along with Bremerton police served warrants at a residence in the1500 block of Warren Avenue.
A 25-year-old South Kitsap woman was arrested and charged with possession of meth and outstanding warrant from Department of Corrections. Bail was set at $10,000 for drug possession and no bail for outstanding warrant.
