Search Warrant Executed At Chronic Nuisance House
OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: On Wednesday just before 7pm the Spokane Police Special Investigations Unit (SIU) and the SWAT team executed a methamphetamine search warrant at 3012 E. Olympic. This is the third time SIU has executed a search warrant at the house in the past six months. The house is a chronic nuisance, and police have received numerous complaints regarding the residents and their activities.
While there were over a dozen people inside the house at the time of the search warrant, six were arrested and booked into the Spokane County Jail. Thomas W. Grosstuek (6/25/60) is the homeowner and was arrested for Possession of a Controlled Substance (meth). Also arrested for Possession of a Controlled Substance (meth) were: Kelly R. Monroe (7/16/84), Leah A. Long (1/27/63), Teresa S. Stoddart (6/24/68) and Gary B. Olive (9/27/67). Thomas F. Deboise (7/14/63) was arrested for a felony DOC warrant.
Spokane Police are working with City Attorneys to move forward with the abatement process. While the drugs seized from the house were not a large quantity, the constant drug use inside the home has created not only a quality of life issue for neighbors, but a safety concern as well.
