With all of this information, the CRDTF made it a priority to identify, disrupt, and arrest these dealers. During the investigation, one of the suspected dealers was identified as a Blake Wallace, a 22-year-old Wenatchee resident who has gang affiliations and is known by CRDTF.
Detectives discovered Wallace was using social media to advertise he was Wenatchee’s “Plug” for puff bars, nicotine/marijuana infused cartridges, and marijuana. Detectives continued to follow up on leads and eventually were able to develop probable cause to arrest Wallace after observing him buying THC infused products and delivering them to juveniles for a profit. Detectives arrested Wallace without incident on 04-12-23.
