PORT ANGELES — A Port Angeles man was arrested this week for allegedly selling heroin to an Olympic Peninsula Narcotics Enforcement Team, or OPNET, informant in downtown Sequim on two occasions in October 2012.

David James Siegwald, 26, was booked into the Clallam County jail Wednesday for investigation of two counts of delivery of a controlled substance.

The case was referred to the Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office for consideration of formal charges, OPNET Supervisor Jason Viada said.

Siegwald’s arrest was the most recent development in a series of OPNET cases.

Seth Roderick Taylor, 25, of Sequim was sentenced to two years’ probation May 21 after pleading guilty May 7 to delivery of a controlled substance.

OPNET developed probable cause to believe that Taylor had sold prescription medication in April 2011, Viada said.

Court papers alleged that Taylor sold two strips of Suboxone at his residence for $40.

Jacob Dilbert Carter, 22, of Port Angeles was sentenced to two years’ probation May 20 after pleading guilty May 1 to two counts of delivery of a controlled substance.


OPNET alleged that Carter sold 1.6 grams of methamphetamine for $140 over three days in June and July of 2011.

A third count of delivery of a controlled substance was dismissed in exchange for the guilty plea.

Thomas Anthony Reina, 50, of Clallam County was sentenced to 20 months in prison May 1 after pleading guilty last December to delivery of a controlled substance.

Court papers alleged that Reina sold seven 80-milligram Oxycodone pills for $1,080 in the Port Angeles Albertsons parking lot to an informant on two days in March and April of 2011.

Additional charges against Reina are pending in Clallam County Superior Court, including possession of heroin with intent to deliver and delivery of heroin, Viada said.
