Expired Trip Permit Yields Over 5.5 Ounces of Meth
On February 8th, 2016,Â at approximately 7:15 a.m., Spokane County Sheriffâ€™s Deputies Tim Greenfield and Derek McNall, riding together as a two deputy patrol unit in the area of North Cannon and Northwest Boulevard, observed a red Mitsubishi Eclipse with an expired trip permit and invalid license plates.
They stopped the vehicle and contacted the driver, identified as 34-year-old Dwayne J. Davis.Â Davis explained he recently purchased the vehicle and he was aware the trip permit had â€œjust expiredâ€ (12/23/15).
A check of Davisâ€™ driving status revealed his driving privileges were suspended.Â Davis was advised he was under arrest for DWLS 3rd and the vehicle trip permit violation.
During a search of Davis incident to his arrest, deputies located a small rectangular shaped nylon case clipped to the inside of his jacket.Â Inside the case, two clear ball shaped baggies containing a crystalline substance, believed to be methamphetamine, were located.
The substance was later field tested and weighted.Â The test showed a presumptive positive result for methamphetamine and showed a total weight of approximately 166 grams or 5.8 ounces.
Davis was transported and booked into the Spokane County Jail for Possession of a Controlled Substance-Methamphetamine and faces misdemeanor charges on DWLS 3rd Degree and Violation of a Trip Permit.
