Valley SWAT standoff turns up empty

A SWAT team surrounded a Spokane Valley home for several hours Thursday hoping to apprehend a suspected thief with a long rap sheet, but he wasn't home.

  Michael G. Grant, 37, has warrants for being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession of a stolen firearm.

Police also believe he is connected to stolen vehicles that have been dumped in the Valley and other thefts.

Grant was featured in a 2005 article in which he accused then-Mayor Jim West of sexually abusing when West was a sheriff's deputy. He said the alleged abuse led to his deep-seated distrust of law enforcement.
