BIG Pot Bust In Spokane County

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE SHERIFF'S OFFICE: Detectives from the Investigative Task Force served a search warrant at 11900 N. Judkins Road on 11/02/11 and seized a loaded Glock pistol, approximately eight pounds of harvested marijuana, 695 marijuana plants, 500 additional marijuana plants that had been recently harvested and arrested five individuals.

Jerad J. Kynaston, Corey E. Mobley, Brice C. Davis, Jayde D. Evans and Peter M. Magana were all arrested for Manufacturing a Controlled Substance - Marijuana.

Kynaston will also be charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm as his previous convictions for felony Possession of a Controlled Substance - Marijuana bar him from being in possession of a firearm.

Each of the plants is generally capable of yielding one half to one full pound of marijuana. The total value of the marijuana plants seized from the residence is estimated to be between $1,216,250 and $2,432,500. 

Kynaston has been previously arrested and convicted in Spokane County in 2009 for being in possession of five pounds of marijuana. He was also arrested and convicted in Sherman County, Oregon in 2010 for being in possession of over 10 pounds of marijuana and is currently on probation for that crime.

Numerous medical marijuana provider forms were located at the residence. One of the patients had previously contacted the Sheriff's Office and complained that he had contracted with an individual associated with the Judkins Road address for his medical marijuana supply, but that this individual was selling the marijuana to other people rather than supplying the patient.  

The Washington state medical marijuana law has recently been amended to allow up to ten individuals to form a co-op and grow up to 45 marijuana plants.

Detectives seized a 2006 Ford F250 pick-up, several thousand dollars worth of new furniture, 35 pairs of new Nike shoes, and three new, large flat-screen TV's as well as other home entertainment items from the residence.  The investigation is continuing and further charges are expected.
