MOSES LAKE, Wash.—The Moses Lake Police Department made a huge heroin and weapons bust after a two day investigation.

MLPD officials said the investigation also lead to the arrest of two Moses Lake men.

Reports said 50-year-old Leo Dabalos and 34-year-old Andre Baldras were booked into the Grant county Jail on a variety of drug and weapons charges.

MLDP reported officers started the investigation Saturday morning after receiving reports Baldras and Dabalos were allegedly selling large quantities of heroin.

By Monday morning, the case had progressed far enough that officers were able to obtain and serve search warrants for two Moses Lake locations where the drugs and firearms were found, according to MLPD’s Facebook.
