SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - A woman has reported to authorities that she was held captive for the past year at a home in Spokane Valley. According to court documents, the woman says she was forced to have sex for money and forced to take drugs inside of the home located at 13520 E. Nora.
 
The woman, whom KHQ chose not to identify, says she was held by several different people including 33-year-old Christopher Foster, 28-year old Chanell Haddon, 41-year-old Lawrence Johnson, 41-year-old Dina Tellez and 20-year old Trevor Franklin. Franklin is currently in jail for allegedly assaulting the victim.
 
In addition to the home on Nora where the raid occurred, the woman says there were four other homes owned by her captors, which she said all involved meth labs. The woman also says she was sold for sex at local motels throughout the Spokane area.

Neighboring business owners tell KHQ they've suspected for some time that the home on Nora was a drug house. They've been watching a high amount of foot traffic and have been keeping track of license plates, etc. However they were shocked when KHQ informed them of the human trafficking allegations.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - It's been nearly one week since Washington voters passed Initiative 1639, a sweeping package of stricter gun regulations - particularly for semiautomatic rifles. While the measure raises the minimum age to purchase semiautomatic rifles to 21, creates enhanced background checks, and forces customers to wait 10 days before taking possession of the firearm, I-1639 lays the framework for "safe storage" of semiautomatic rifles
