“Law enforcement officials began investigating Foundation in March 2018 after receiving reports of drug trafficking inside the club, as well as ongoing concerns city-wide about overdoses and sexual assaults associated with drugs like GHB,” police said in Thursday’s release.

Police said during their operation, they purchased cocaine, methamphetamine, MDMA and GHB inside or near the nightclub.

From the Seattle police release: “On Wednesday, SPD’s narcotics unit and HSI served warrants at several locations and seized 829 grams of cocaine, over 1,000 grams of MDMA, 400 ecstasy pills, 800 Xanax pills, 190 grams of ketamine, 13 grams of DMT, 176 grams of GHB, 1200 Molly capsules, and additional prescription drugs, as well as two handguns and more than $60,000 in cash.”

After the investigation, the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board issued an emergency suspension of Foundation Nightclub’s liquor license.
