4 police raids part of ongoing OxyContin case

An ongoing investigation into OxyContin distribution in Spokane has led to at least four arrests and raids at several Valley apartments this month.

Suspects Kevin D. Miles, 28, and Tashina A. Perkins, 26, are believed to be large distributors of the powerful pain medication.

They were arrested Thursday after an early-morning raid at their apartment at 12112 E. Alki Ave.

Spokane Valley police detectives found almost 700 OxyContin pills and nearly $160,000 in cash.

They believe Miles, who moved to Spokane from California about five months ago, was preparing to return to California to get more pills.
