Drug Bust Uncovers Stolen Soviet Weapon
Moses Lake police had a successful drug bust and found more than they bargained for.
After arresting a 27-year-old man and 24-year-old woman they found 13 ounces of meth, 5 ounces of heroin, some cocaine, and a gun reported stolen from California.
But this was no regular gun.
It was a Soviet-era SKS rifle! A collector's item, I guess. From what I've heard we made better guns so maybe this was just for fun. No idea what the druggies wanted it for.
