39 strikes and you’re out?

Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich will seek federal charges against a repeat offender arrested by detectives this morning on charges of possessing methamphetamine today, marking the man’s 39th arrest in Washington state.

Mark Bush, 38, and Crystal Peterson, 30, were accused of possessing about 11 ounces of meth valued at $13,000 to $19,000, the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release. They intended to deal the meth, investigators believe.

Man Hoards Own Pee To Make Meth

A man arrested after Spokane police found a suspected methamphetamine lab was said to be collecting his urine to use in the manufacturing of the drug.  Washington Department of Corrections probation officer Scott Wright tipped police to the suspected lab Wednesday at a home Michael Ward Baker, 54, shares with his elderly mother in the 4500 block of North Hawthorne Street, according to a search warrant. Wright said neighbors complained about dug activity in the home and another witness said Baker collects his urine “to be recycled for use in manufacturing methamphetamine,” according to the warrant/Meghann Cuniff, Sirens & Gavels.

Why Go To Spokane Besides Meth?

Spokane, Washington. Ah, yes. There are so many reasons not to go there – the considerable excess of Wal-Marts, the tweaked-out, drug-addled zombie people, and for every Smartcar modestly obeying traffic in Seattle, there are two over sized, gas-guzzling pick-up trucks in Spokane running over flowers and babies. Yet here I am, making up a list of reasons why you should drive there on Friday. Well, it’s all about the love – G. Love, that is/Gwendolyn Elliott, Seattle Weekly. More here.

Question: Can you list 3-4 good reasons to go to Spokane?
