Authorities seized a pound of methamphetamine and arrested two men after a drug sting conducted in Gardnerville last week.
Southern California residents David Wright, 56, and Sung Lee, 56, were taken into custody on July 7 by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Street Enforcement Team working in conjunction with the Tri-Net Task Force and the FBI Safe Streets Task Force.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, the team set up a purchase with Wright, who delivered 462 grams of methamphetamine to the Grant Avenue Walmart parking lot.
Wright was arrested, as was Lee. According to the sheriff’s office there were another 82.3 grams of methamphetamine and 8.7 grams of suspected psilocybin mushrooms.
Lee was allegedly found with 7.9 grams of methamphetamine on his person at the time of his arrest.
Wright and Lee were booked into the Douglas County Jail on charges of felony high level of trafficking a controlled substance, sales of a controlled substance, and possession of a controlled substance. Bail was set for both men at $100,000.
