A man who dealt heroin and other drugs out of an Arlington dog kennel was sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court in Seattle to 10 years in prison for conspiracy to distribute heroin and methamphetamine and possession of counterfeit money.

Shawn Lundy, 61, was arrested in February 2014 following  a raid at Arlington Doggy Day Care. When federal agents searched the kennel they found cash from the sale of drugs and counterfeit money in various safes, as well as heroin, methamphetamine, cash and other drug-trafficking paraphernalia hidden in the walls, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Neighbors told KING-TV that Arlington Doggy Day Care boarded people’s pets while they were out of town. The business was frequently praised by customers for its excellent care.

Lundy has an extensive criminal record that includes a 1990 indictment in Connecticut for drug trafficking.

In 2000, he was charged with money laundering and growing marijuana in Arlington and sentenced to 10 years in federal prison. While serving his sentence in a Texas prison in 2007, Lundy briefly escaped before he was captured in Arlington.
