Wanted Man Arrested After Being Spotted By An Alert Off-Duty Deputy

Spokane Valley Police Department Press Release:

On February 2, 2013, at about 8:00 p.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputy J. Getchell was off-duty and in the area of Park and Broadway when he saw 23-year-old Brandon Woodward in the passenger seat of a vehicle.  Deputy Getchell knew Woodward had an active warrant and contacted dispatch to see if there were any marked units available to stop the vehicle.  There were none available at the time.  Deputy Getchell provided the license plate of the vehicle and also noted it was last seen driving eastbound on Broadway.
 
A short time later, Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputy K. Mosher located the vehicle at Broadway and Argonne.  Deputy Mosher stopped the vehicle and detained Woodward.  It was also later determined that the driver, 46-year-old Jesse Adams, had a suspended driver's license.  There was also an adult female passenger in the back seat.
 
Deputy Wells arrived on scene and noticed a black pack on the floor that had been between Woodward's legs.  When asked if anything in the vehicle belonged to him he said no. 
 
Adams had been placed under arrest for driving on a suspended license.  Deputy Wells told Adams he was investigating a different case that Woodward was a suspect in and asked for permission to search his vehicle.  Adams gave Deputy Wells consent.
 
Deputy Wells located a pill bottle on the seat where the adult female was sitting that contained three baggies that contained a white crystalline substance.  The substance was later field tested resulting in a positive presumptive test for methamphetamine.  Deputy Wells located 18 keys on two key rings in the black pack that was between Woodward's legs.  All of the keys were old or worn and were for import cars such as Toyota, Nissan and Honda.  Seven of the keys had distinct clear marks where they were shaved or ground down.
 
Deputy Wells asked Adams about the pill bottle containing methamphetamine and asked if his prints would be on the bottle or baggies.  Adams said they would because he held it for Woodward earlier in the day.  He told Deputy Wells the black bag containing the keys belonged to Woodward.
 
  • Adams was booked into the Spokane County Jail on the charge of Possession of a Controlled Substance, methamphetamine.
  • Woodward was booked into jail on seven counts of Making or Having Motor Vehicle Theft Tools.
