BELLINGHAM — A Bellingham man gave police a false name and was later found to have existing warrants and fentanyl powder hidden on his body, police reported.
Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office deputies stopped Daniel Allan Little when reporting to a burglary in progress. An investigation showed there was no actual entry to the building and therefore no probable cause for a burglary charge.
Officials said Little gave officers a fake name, and when he finally gave them his real one, officers found an outstanding warrant for first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm.
Little ran away from the deputies when they moved to handcuff him but was caught after a short foot chase. Deputies also found powder hidden in Little’s buttocks, which he admitted to being fentanyl, police said.
