SPOKANE, Wash. - A father and son were arrested Thursday morning on drug related charges after police served a search warrant at their Northwest Spokane home.

Police believe 20-year-old Kruz Hawkins has been selling marijuana to Shadle Park High School students and his father, Ricky, knowingly allowed the sales to take place on his property in the 2300 block of W. Crown.

In addition to the arrests, police also seized 11 marijuana plants from the home as well as desserts officers believe contained the drug.

Police said Ricky had a medical license to grow marijuana, but not to dispense it.

Detectives have been conducting an ongoing investigation involving the sales of controlled substances in and around the area of Shadle Park High School. Undercover operations as well as surveillance operations led detectives to develop probable cause for the arrests.

Kruz was arrested for Delivery of a Controlled Substance and his father has been charged with Unlawful Use of a Building – Knowingly Allowing Drug Sales to Occur on his Property.

The pair's home is located about four blocks north of the school.
