11/21/2017: "Two Arrested On Orcas, Meth Related"
San Juan County Sheriff’s made two arrests on Monday in the Eastsound area of Orcas Island when they responded to a report that Marvel Ross, who had outstanding warrants, was seen at a house in Eastsound.
When Deputy Sheriff Raymond Harvey knocked on the door of the residence he was met by Kami Philbrook, who stated Ross was not in the house.
Deputy Harvey informed her that if after obtaining a search warrant Ross was found to be in the house, not only would Ross be arrested, but so would she, for assisting him.
Deputy Harvey stated in a report that “I again asked if we could look inside. She said "let me put my dog away." She walked inside, shut the door behind her and did not come back out after several attempts of knocking and calling her phone.”
Deputies entered the house under authority of a search warrant and located Ross in a locked bathroom.
Philbrook was laying face down on a bed in the living room, and when removed, drug paraphernalia was located that tested positive for methamphetamine.
Both were taken into custody.
