Homicide victim’s roommate arrested

The roommate of a man found dead near Green Bluff last week has been arrested on a felony drug charge.

Miguel A. Rodriguez-Barbosa, 18, was booked into Spokane County Jail today about 3 p.m. on suspicion of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.

Detectives found several hundred grams of marijuana Oct. 20 when they searched the home Rodriguez-Barbosa shared with Jesus Torres Valdovinos, 25, at 623 E. Vicksburg, according to the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office. Rodriguez-Barbosa likely have his first appearance in Spokane County Superior Court tomorrow.

Detectives are looking for information on a storage unit in Spokane that Valdovinos or Rodriguez-Barbosa rented; the teen told detectives Valdovinos stored guns, marijuana and money there. Investigators also are still looking for a love seat missing from the home.

The love seat matches the couch pictured above but has only two seats.
