The owner of several drug rehab centers was arrested on a charge of possession with intent to distribute drugs after being caught dealing illegal drugs, police in Washington said.

Investigators with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Seattle Police Department (SPD) arrested the operator of clean and sober residential facilities, following an investigation that revealed that the man was dealing illegal drugs.

Timothy Rehberg, 50, of Everett, was arrested on Tuesday, following a three-month investigation.

In a search of his office at the I.C. Clean People Recovery Housing, Incorporated located in the 2900 block of Everett Avenue in Everett, police located approximately one pound of crystal methamphetamine, a quarter pound of heroin, small quantities of marijuana, oxycodone and methadone, and a .38 caliber revolver.

Rehberg came to the attention of law enforcement, when a witness identified him as someone selling methamphetamine, heroin, and marijuana.

Further investigation confirmed Rehberg’s identity and his occupation as the owner and operator of a chain of clean and sober housing facilities under the name “I.C. Clean People Recovery Housing.”

A person working with law enforcement made four purchases of illegal drugs, including methamphetamine, heroin, and marijuana, from Rehberg.

Rehberg is prohibited from possessing firearms due to prior felony convictions as well as an active protection order from a domestic partner.
