Walla Walla SWAT Team Arrests Two for Meth

Posted: Updated:

WALLA WALLA, WA - Two people face drug charges after the Walla Walla City/County SWAT team surrounded their home Wednesday morning.  

Walla Walla Police say members of the SWAT team served a search warrant and forced their way into an apartment at 212 North Roosevelt just before 7:00 AM. 

Inside, officers arrested 51-year-old Christina L. Boucher and 55-year-old Richard C. Chapek, who both have prior arrests for narcotics. 

Police say Drug Detectives from the Special Teams Unit made controlled purchases of Methamphetamine from Chapek over the past several weeks.

Detectives say while they were searching the apartment, they also found 4 small baggies with trace amounts of meth, as well as scales that they believe Chapek and Boucher used to weigh the drugs.

Police say Chapek is being held on probable cause for delivery of methamphetamine, delivery of methamphetamine within 1000 feet of a school bus stop, possession of methamphetamine, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Boucher is being held for possession of methamphetamine after police say they found a smoking device with meth behind the couch cushion where she was sitting. 

In an unrelated case, officers say Chapek is also being held on one count of attempted first degree theft, second degree malicious mischief, and attempting to traffic in stolen property. Police say these charges stem from an investigation following the attempted theft of a Honda boat motor from a secure storage facility in Walla Walla. Officers say the motor is worth more than $9,900 and sustained over $2,400 in damage during the attempted theft.
