Spokane Police: Seven Suspects Were Arrested During Search Warrant

Posted: Updated:

PRESS RELEASE FROM SPOKANE POLICE: Detectives were contacted by Officer Paul Taylor in late 2012 to assist in handling a problem house (10150 N. Seminole) in the Indian Trail neighborhood. Officer Taylor is the Neighborhood Conditions Officer (NCO) for that neighborhood. Taylor advised there was a lengthy list of complaints from neighbors and the occupants were involved in meth.

During the past six weeks SPD Patrol was at the house ten times ranging from a ‘suspicious person' call, ‘argument' calls and one ‘person with a weapon' call.

During the investigation SIU Detectives made multiple contacts with different subjects at 10150 N. Seminole. All the contacts made it clear the occupants were selling meth and the homeowner was allowing the house to be used as a place for use and sales of meth. Detectives obtained a search warrant to advance the investigation.

During the investigation and while conducting a risk analysis, Detectives learned that subjects there were known to have been armed and assault law enforcement. Because of this and other factors SPD SWAT made the tactical entry.

Once inside several subjects were contacted and detained.  Two were trying to escape through a ground floor side window.

The following suspects were arrested:

Michael J. Culbreath 6/24/66 One count of Delivery of a Controlled Substance-meth.

Marcy N. Pratt 3/31/45 One count of Unlawful Use of a Building for Drugs.

Mordekye A Layman 8/19/86 Possession of a Controlled Substance-meth.

Lori L. Warren 8/11/87 Possession of a Controlled Substance-meth.

Misty E. Hall 12/30/81 DOC Escape Warrant.

Walter E. Pritchett 10/6/60 Bench Warrant

Kelly J. Trevino 3/10/67 DOC Escape Warrant

Detectives recovered a small amount of meth during the search.  Most of the evidence was consistent with meth use.

SPD would like to thank the neighbors willing to take back their neighborhood by reporting unlawful activity.  Officer Taylor will continue his investigation into other issues involved in this case.

The Spokane Police Department encourages calls to the Drug Hotline at 509-363-8210 to report illicit drug sales activity and contact your Neighborhood Cop Shop with information on problem houses.
