**PRESS RELEASE FROM SPOKANE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE**
 
SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. - On September 14, 2012, at 10:28 p.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputy C. Hilton was patrolling the area of E. Broadway and N. University when he stopped a black Cadillac Seville for traffic violations.  Deputy Hilton contacted the driver, identified as 24 year old Taylor J. Davis, and learned his driver's license was suspended.  Deputy Hilton arrested Davis for Driving While License Suspended (DWLS) and ordered an impound tow for the vehicle.  As a result of an inventory of the vehicle prior to impound, Deputy Hilton found and seized a large quantity of crystal methamphetamine and U.S. currency.  Deputy Hilton booked Davis into the Spokane County Jail on the felony charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance, methamphetamine, and DWLS.  Davis' vehicle was seized pending application for a search warrant.
 
On September 17, 2012, Deputy Hilton obtained a search warrant for Davis' vehicle.  He located an additional large quantity of crystal methamphetamine and cocaine, as well as a loaded .40 caliber pistol.  The pistol was confirmed stolen from a residence in the City of Spokane.  Subsequently, Deputy Hilton developed probable cause to arrest Davis, a convicted felon, on charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance, methamphetamine and cocaine, With Intent to Deliver, Possession of a Stolen Firearm, and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm 1st Degree.
 
Deputy Hilton continued his investigation and determined that Davis had recently rented a storage locker in Spokane Valley, and also learned that Davis had already been released from jail for the two original charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance and DWLS.  Spokane Valley Detective Shannon McCrillis responded to the storage unit and maintained surveillance on the storage unit while Deputy Hilton applied for a search warrant. 
 
A short time later, Detective McCrillis saw Davis and an associate arrive at the storage unit in a vehicle and then quickly leave the area.  The vehicle was stopped by Spokane Valley Deputies and Davis was taken into custody on his new charges.
 
Deputy Hilton obtained the search warrant for Davis' storage unit and seized evidence of Davis' crimes that included an additional handgun, ammunition and a laptop computer.  The computer was confirmed as stolen during a residential burglary earlier this year in the City of Spokane.  The investigation into Taylor Davis' crimes continues.
