Warrant sweep nets arrests

On Feb. 12, Clallam County Sheriffs deputies arrested Todd Michael Perszyk, 50, and Holli A. Bell, 34, during a warrant sweep in Carlsborg.

 

Bell was arrested on an outstanding Department of Corrections pickup order while Perszyk was arrested for multiple charges including possession of stolen property, obstructing a law enforcement officer and possession of illegal narcotic (heroin) with intent to deliver, according to the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office.

 

Deputies initially went to a residence in the 900 block of Heath Road in Carlsborg on the morning of Feb. 12, attempting to serve an arrest warrant on 21-year-old Drew Tyler Balch, 21. Balch has felony warrants for failure to obey a court order and a misdemeanor warrant for third-degree theft.

 

Balch was not located at the residence, but deputy Todd Yarnes located a stolen chain saw in the back of a pickup truck; the truck belonged to Todd Perszyk, deptuies said last week.

 

Perszyk obstructed deputies by barricading the front door of the residence shut, refusing to open it and trying to prevent deputies from gaining entry to the residence. He also told deputies that the homeowner was absent, though the homeowner was present, deputies said.

 

After gaining entry to the residence, deputies arrested Perszyk and also located Bell inside the residence. Bell was wanted by the Department of Corrections.

 

Subsequent to Perszyk’s arrest, deputies found 3.7 grams of black tar heroin in a rolled up sock in his coat pocket, the Sheriff’s Office said.

 

Both Bell and Perszyk were booked into Clallam County Jail.

 

Anyone knowing the location of Drew Tyler Balch is encouraged to call the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office at 417-4970.
