The Grant County Sheriff’s Office released arrest statistics related to drugs at this year’s 2018 Paradiso Festival. Thirty people were arrested for over eighty criminal charges. 2,000 ecstasy pills along with cocaine, LSD, ketamine and mushrooms were seized. There were zero deaths this year. The arrests were reported to be a result of a partnership between Quincy Police, Washington State Patrol, Adams County Sheriff, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the LEAD task force, and promoter Live Nation.
The Sheriff noted via Twitter that they arrested “only the dealers”:
Just the dealers. 👍
