'Failure To Signal' Stop Leads To Felony Arrest

SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. -
SPOKANE COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT PRESS RELEASE:
 
On Wednesday, April 4th, Deputy Thurman stopped a Dodge Stratus near the area of Argonne and Montgomery for failing to signal.  Prior to contacting the driver, later identified as 43 year old Larry Marquette, Deputy Thurman saw Marquette was leaning down as if placing something underneath the driver's seat.
 
Deputy Thurman had requested additional units due to this behavior and was assisted by  a WSP Trooper.  After Deputy Thurman had Marquette exit his vehicle the Trooper advised Deputy Thurman he could see what appeared to a baggy underneath the driver's seat containing a white substance similar to methamphetamine. 
 
Marquette gave Deputy  Thurman consent to search his vehicle.  Deputy Thurman retrieved the white crystal substance under the driver's seat that later presumptively tested positive for methamphetamine.  Deputy Thurman also located two separate cloth bags that contained several plastic baggies and a digital scale.  The white crystal substance inside the baggies also presumptively tested positive for methamphetamine.  Marquette told Deputy Thurman he was on active probation for Possession of a Controlled Substance with the Intent to Deliver, he could not find a job and had been selling the methamphetamine for the past month to take care of his sick mother.
 
Marquette was booked into the Spokane County Jail on the felony charge of Possession of a Controlled substance with the Intent to Deliver.
