Three arrested; meth and child porn seized

SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. - Detectives assigned to the sheriff's Investigative Task Force served the last of three related search warrants Wednesday morning and seized methamphetamine and packaging materials from a West Plains mobile home.

Arrested in the raid at 7700 W. Westbow Road was 57 year old Elmer B. Hoiseth.  He was booked into the Spokane County Jail on a felony count of Delivery of Methamphetamine.

Detectives said Hoiseth was one of two men who had sold methamphetamine to Jacque C. Bos, a 49 year old Spokane Valley man arrested Tuesday when they raided his apartment at 2400 N. Wilbur Road.

Detectives had made several undercover purchases of meth from Bos, and had also determined he possessed child porn during their investigation.  Tuesday's search warrant allowed them to seize meth as well as all computers and other devices on which child pornography could be stored.

On Wednesday, a sheriff's office computer forensics specialist was examining the items seized.  Bos was booked Tuesday for Delivery of Child Pornography, but probable cause exists for his arrest on Delivery of Methamphetamine charges as well.  

While investigating his drug sales, detectives learned he was obtaining at least some of his meth from Hoiseth and a second suspect, 45 year old Spokane resident Phuoc Hure Nguyen.

Detectives raided Nguyen's home in the 400 block of E. Vicksburg Place on March 17th and recovered a small amount of methamphetamine and the remnants of a meth lab.

He was arrested that date for Possession, but probable cause now exists for his re-arrest for Manufacturing a Controlled Substance.

Investigation into all three suspects' drug activities continues.
