PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE VALLEY POLICE DEPT. AND THE SPOKANE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE: On Wednesday night, June 26th, just after 11:30 p.m. a suspicious vehicle was reported in the 12600 block of East Broadway.
It was reported over a period of 30 minutes, a male who appeared to be "high" continued to get in and out of a van parked at that location. Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputy Chad Eaton responded to the location and contacted the male, identified as 22-year-old Brent A. Graham. During the contact, Deputy Eaton learned Graham had an active felony warrant for Theft 2nd Degree.
Graham was arrested and transported to the Spokane County Jail for the warrant. At the jail, Spokane County Corrections Officer Johnston located a clear plastic baggie containing a white crystalline substance hidden inside Graham's shoe.
After being informed of his Constitutional rights, Graham admitted to Deputy Eaton the baggie contained Methamphetamine. Graham was also booked on an addition felony charge of Possession of a Controlled Substance, Methamphetamine.
A field test kit showed a presumptive positive reading for methamphetamine. This is just one example of how "tips" of suspicious activity from our citizens can help deputies investigate criminal activity and keep our community safe.
