2 arrested in major drug bust in school zone

Police arrested a man and woman for selling narcotics at McCosh Park on Tuesday.

Dante Scoby, 21, and Yuridia Marmolejo, 20, were found with meth, heroin and prescription narcotic pills. Scales, packaging materials and brass knuckles were also found with the drugs.

Scoby was booked into Grant County Jail on charges of meth and heroin possession with intent to deliver. Both charges were enhanced because the man was within 1,000 feet of a school. He also was charged with possession of a dangerous weapon and possession of oxycodone and suboxone.

Marmelejo was booked on meth possession charges.

The bust was made as part of an ongoing investigation into illegal drug sales in the area by the Moses Lake Police Department.
