Spokane Valley Couple BUSTED For Meth; Children Taken By CPS

SPOKANE, Wash. - Early Thursday morning detectives with the Spokane Police Department Special Investigative Unit (SIU), executed a search warrant at 12020 E. Marietta #17, in the Spokane Valley. Detectives arrested 34-year-old Matthew P. Maffia and 25-year old Kayli N. Hamilton for Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver (methamphetamine).

Detectives located methamphetamine, paraphernalia to ingest the meth, scales and cell phones inside the home. Two small children, a 1-year-old boy and a 2-week old girl, were inside the apartment at the time of the arrests. They were placed with Child Protective Services (CPS) and referred to the Drug Endangered Children (DEC) program in Spokane County. DEC provides medical evaluations and follow up care for the children.

Two revolvers and a rifle were seized from a nearby location and that investigation continues. The serial number on one of the handguns had been ground off, indicating the likelihood of it being stolen. Maffia has an extensive criminal history, to include 16 felony convictions for offenses involving controlled substances and stolen property. Pending the outcome of the investigation, Maffia could be facing additional charges of unlawful possession of a firearm.

Both Maffia and Hamilton were booked into the Spokane County Jail for the above charges
