SEATTLE —  An Arlington dog kennel operator was sentenced in federal court Friday to 10 years in prison for conspiracy to distribute heroin and methamphetamine, and possession of counterfeit money.

Shawn Lundy, 61, the operator of Arlington Doggy Day Care, was arrested Feb. 25, 2014, and pleaded guilty last Nov. 24.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office said that when law enforcement agents searched the kennel facility in February 2014, they found cash from the sale of drugs and counterfeit money in various safes on the property.

In addition, in hidden voids in the walls they found heroin, methamphetamine, cash and other drug trafficking paraphernalia, the office said.

According to records filed in the case, Lundy came to the attention of law enforcement as someone distributing significant amounts of heroin in Snohomish County.  Lundy has previous federal drug trafficking convictions in both Connecticut and Washington.
