Once a warrant was approved by a judge, authorities searched the storage locker and found approx. 1.25 lbs of meth, a firearm and personal documents. Those 1.25 lbs are the equivalent of 1,200 dosages, which suggests an intent to distribute these drugs.

The storage locker is connected to Seth Cory Cuhna, a 35-year-old from the WW region, who was “lodged in the Walla Walla county jail on different charges,” according to the news release.

As per the authorities, probable cause charges were submitted on Cuhna for unlawful possession of a firearm as a convicted felon and possession of controlled substance with intent to deliver.
