DEVELOPING: Spokane Pastor Faces Drug Counts

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: A 35-year-old pastor was arrested by Spokane Valley Police Friday after they heard him stealing pain medications from a parishioner and caught him red-handed as he left her home.

Greg Scott Glover was booked into the Spokane County Jail about 3 p.m. Friday on two counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance Hydrocodone.  Additional criminal charges may be developed as detectives continue their investigation.

On October 1st, a Spokane Valley woman called Crime Check and reported that she suspected the pastor of ConnectPoint Church, 1316 N. Lincoln, had been stealing her pain medications for about six months.  Glover had begun visiting the woman in her N. Park Road home after she had foot surgery and was confined to a rolling crutch. 

She reported that she began missing Hydrocodone tablets, 45 to 60 per month, but had no idea who might be taking them.  She enlisted a friend's help to set up a video camera on her medicines, and on September 30th, recorded Glover stealing the pills during a visit.

After reviewing the video, Detective Mark Fox arranged to monitor the suspect's next visit. He stationed a detective in the basement who listened as Glover walked into the victim's bedroom where the drugs were stored.  When he left the home, Fox arrested him for the September 30th theft and found 14 Hydrocodone tablets in his pocket.

Fox had counted the drugs before the visit and the bottle was missing that very amount as Glover left.  During post-arrest interviews, the detective learned that the pastor had stolen the drugs on at least four prior visits.

Given that ConnectPoint church has roughly 150 parishioners, Fox believes it is likely that the suspect has stolen medication from other victims.

 Anyone that recognizes Glover as someone who has been in private areas of their home and who now believes they are missing pain medications is encouraged to call Crime Check at 456-2233.
