Police arrest Seattle-area pastor for allegedly dealing drugs, including fentanyl, cocaine, and meth

Breaking News

Police allege that Parker led a double life. One, with his wife at their home in Arlington as a pastor caring for at least 14 sexual offenders who needed help staying off the streets. The other, with his girlfriend, dealing drugs at a home in Tulalip.

Parker had been a guest pastor at least once at the Sisco Heights Community Church according to a report from KCPQ-TV. He worked as the director of Omni-Manna Service, a organization helping convicts and addicts find work and low-cost housing.

A source reportedly tipped off the Skagit County Interlocal Drug Enforcement Unit to the allegedly illicit activities of the drug-dealing pastor late last year. Investigators say Parker was pulled over in his 2002 Subaru on Jan. 19 and found in possession of a loaded handgun as well as more than 2,000 counterfeit pills, 2.7 pounds of meth, fentanyl powder, and cocaine.

Investigators said they found 30 guns during investigations at both of Parker’s houses. Court documents said Parker admitted that he was receiving drug supplies three to four times a week.

Pastor Parker is charged with possession of fentanyl, methamphetamine, and cocaine, as well as money laundering, among other charges. He is being held on a $750,000 bond at the Skagit County jail and is due in court on Feb. 2.
