On the evening of May 25, the Cordova Police Department (CPD) seized a number of illegal narcotics at the Alaska Marine Highway ferry terminal.
The drugs, found by police dog Eyak during a search, were being transported by passengers coming to Cordova via ferry from Whitter, and included methamphetamine, heroin, and fentanyl.
The amount of fentanyl found, approximately 200 pills worth, is considered a “large amount,” according to a press release from the City of Cordova.
Matthew Mobley and Danielle Zink were both arrested and charged with Class A Misdemeanors for possession.
This drug bust is the second carried out by the CPD this year. In February, a search warrant resulted in the seizure of several firearms, methamphetamine and fentanyl at a residence near 1.6 mile Whitshed Road. It is not yet known if these incidents were related.
Both the police department and local health services continue to highlight the harm these addictive substances cause to the community.
