Deputies seek felon in connection with drug find

Deputies with the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office are seeking the whereabouts of Steven D. Goodman in connection with an Aug. 17 traffic stop that yielded a cache of drugs and a shotgun.

Goodman, a 31-year-old who has an alias of Teddy Goodman, is described as a white male about 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches in height, about 195 pounds, with blond hair and blue eyes.

Goodman’s criminal history includes nine felony convictions — the most recent for robbery, burglary and unlawful possession of a firearm; he also has five misdemeanor convictions for assault. He is believed to be armed with a handgun, law officials said.

At about 11 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 17, Clallam County Sheriff Deputy Eric Morris attempted to stop a vehicle — a blue and silver 1989 Ford Bronco — traveling north at about the 2000 block of Monroe Road in Port Angeles. The vehicle was traveling over the speed limit and did not have working taillights, deputies said.

The vehicle slowed to about 20 miles per hour, and when it eventually stopped about a half mile later, a passenger fled on foot.

While talking with the vehicle’s driver, Morris saw suspected drugs and drug paraphernalia in the vehicle. After obtaining a search warrant, deputies found 30 grams of suspected methamphetamine, a loaded, sawed-off 12-gauge shotgun and miscellaneous drug paraphernalia, deputies said.

The driver of the vehicle, 33-year-old Rischelle Heaton of Sequim, was cited for driving while license suspended in the third degree, driving without an ignition interlock device and speeding. Heaton was then released.

During a search of the area, deputies discovered a bag containing about 60 grams of suspected methamphetamine, more than $2,500 in cash and a wallet containing Goodman’s identification.
