Coeur d'Alene Police Department Press Release:

On April 4th at 5:30 am the North Idaho Violent Crimes Task Force and the multi-agency SWAT team enacted a search warrant at 114 Borah Ave. in Coeur d'Alene. The search warrant was for drugs and paraphernalia associated with drugs. The suspect that lives in the residence is Christine R. Davis-Jasinksi, 36 years of age of Coeur d'Alene. She was not home at the time. NIVCTF detectives received a tip that she was at the Coeur d'Alene Casino this morning. She was arrested simultaneously by the NIVCTF for an outstanding warrant of Driving while suspended. Christine was also charged with delivery of a controlled substance (meth) and possession of drug paraphernalia. She had methamphetamine in her possession in her vaginal body cavity at the time of her arrest.

Methamphetamine and paraphernalia were also found in her residence after officers were able to gain entry. The SWAT team used their armored vehicle to approach her house. They also utilized the SWAT Tactical vehicle. Extreme caution was taken due to information about several weapons inside the residence as well as four pit bull dogs.

Officers breached three doors at the same time and a SWAT team member used a dog snare to control a large, vicious pit bull. The other dogs were cooperative and none of them were injured during the incident. Animal Control officers were on scene and took care of the dogs while officers searched the residence.

An older female (believed to be Christine's mother) came to the door due to officer demands to do so. She told them to go away. Officers were able to get her to comply and leave the residence.

Officers breached the outside shop door and discovered an adult male hiding inside. He was not arrested on any charges.

Detectives discovered a sophisticated video surveillance system inside of the residence. Cameras were able to monitor the street area and anyone approaching the house. It was also equipped with an audio ability and a visual to the downstairs entrance of the house.

Detectives on scene discovered a large amount of property that is believed to be stolen. The property consisted of jewelry and construction type power tools. Coeur d'Alene detectives are seizing the property and will work to identify owners of the property.

Two males believed to be associated with Christine and the residence were arrested on April 3rd on outstanding warrants. Chase A. Nutting, 21 years of age, currently of Coeur d'Alene was arrested on a warrant for FTA for Attempted Robbery. He was arrested for this warrant and also as a Fugitive from Justice out of Kitsap County, WA.
