SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. -

Spokane Valley police arrested two convicted felons and seized drugs and 31 guns, 2 of which had been illegally converted into fully automatic weapons. 

Deputy Mark Gregory released the following information: 

The investigation of this Chronic Nuisance Property is a direct result of neighbors in the area reporting criminal/suspicious activity and working with Spokane Valley Police to achieve this successful outcome.   

On May 10, 2018, Spokane Valley Investigative Unit (SVIU) Detectives and Patrol Deputies executed a search warrant at a residence located in the 10700 block of E. 29th in Spokane Valley.

SVIU obtained the search warrant after receiving numerous calls from neighbors in the area reporting suspicious/drug related and other suspected criminal activity.  The 22 incidents reported since the beginning of February 2018 were analyzed and an investigation was initiated. 

The information gained from citizens was combined with information received from Patrol Deputies and SVIU surveillance operations which quickly led to SVIU Detective Jeff Thurman establishing probable cause to obtain the search warrant. 

At the residence, Detectives located and seized; Methamphetamine, Heroin, Suboxone, various prescription medications, scales, ledgers, syringes, stolen checks/identification and 31 firearms (17 rifles-2 were illegally converted to fire full automatic, 11 pistols and 3 shotguns).  They also seized two vehicles and over $700.00 in cash. 

Investigators believe some of the firearms are stolen and are working to determine ownership/identity and who made the illegal modifications as well as any additional victims related to this ongoing investigation.  Additional charges are expected. 

Chane and Abuhl were arrested and booked into the Spokane County Jail for the following charges:

Chane: Delivery of a Controlled Substance (5 counts), Possession of a Controlled Substance (PCS) with Intent to Deliver-Methamphetamine (1 count), PCS with Intent-Heroin (2 counts), PCS with Intent Suboxone (1 count), PCS Hydrocodone (2 counts), PCS Zolpidem (1 count), PCS Alprazolam (1 count), Unlawful Use of a Building for Drug Purposes (3 counts) and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm 2nd Degree (2 counts).

    NEW YORK (AP) - Scientists say they've confirmed that puzzling fossils from more than 500 million years ago are traces of an animal.    That would make it one of the earliest known creatures.    The fossils are impressions in rock: oval shapes with internal lines, looking somewhat like a leaf imprint densely packed with veins.  First described in 1947, they are found in Australia and Russia.
