Former Tam student arrested in San Rafael drug bust


By Kennedy Cook, Editor in Chief

Investigators arrested former Tam student Michael Wong, 18, in his San Rafael home on the evening of October 23. They seized various narcotics, a stun gun, and a handgun that was reported stolen last year in San Jose.

After the Marin County Major Crimes Task Force opened the investigation earlier this month, detectives executed a search warrant on October 23. Investigators confiscated suspected cocaine, ecstasy, Xanax, oxycodone pills, codeine syrup, marijuana packaged for sale, digital scales, packaging materials, several hundred THC vape cartridges, a handgun, a loaded magazine, a box of ammunition, and a stun gun, sheriff’s sergeant Ryan Petersen, the assistant commander of the task force, told the Marin Independent Journal. The task force estimated the street value of the drugs at $10,000.

Wong is currently being held in Marin County Jail on suspicion of five felonies and a misdemeanor.
