Crack cocaine suspect arrested w/ $15k

A suspected crack cocaine dealer was arrested with $15,000 at his East Central Spokane apartment this week.

Joseph K. "J" Davis, 32, was arrested on Wednesday after selling crack on four occasions in an undercover police sting, according to a search warrant prepared by the Spokane Police Department.

Police believe Davis imports cocaine to Spokane from California, where he is wanted on an extraditable drug warrant in Redding.

An undercover detective used a "cooperative individual" to buy crack from Davis on Dec. 2, Jan. 11, Jan. 14 and on Monday, according to the search warrant. Police also attached a GPS tracker to Davis' 2000 Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

They searched his apartment at 1019 N. Crestline St. on Wednesday and recovered $15,895, a cell phone, drug scale and suspected crack cocaine.

Davis appeared in Superior Court on Thursday via video feed from the jail with his lawyer, Chris Phelps. He was given $1,000 bond for the drug charge but remains in jail on the California warrant.
