Right now the Spokane County Sheriff's Burglary Task Force and the Investigative Task Force are continuing their investigation inside the home.    

Deputy Craig Chamberlin told KHQ-TV's Blake Jensen at the scene that two arrests have been made, but investigators aren't sure if the two suspects are directly connected to the burglary and drug ring. He added that the two men arrested just happened to be in the home that was being investigated and both had active, unrelated warrants.
