KALISPELL- The Flathead County Sheriff’s Office shared a picture of items seized during a search of a motel room in Kalispell Thursday, December 26.

According to FCSO, the Northwest Montana Drug Task Force had been investigating a drug trafficking organization in California operating in the Flathead Valley.
