Undercover probe nets meth, 6 firearms

An undercover police investigation Saturday led to the seizure of six firearms as well as methamphetamine, scales and packaging materials at a north Spokane home.

Jeffery S. Finney, 30, is accused of selling two of the guns to a confidential informant being followed by members of the Spokane Police Department's drug unit.

Police followed Finney and the informant to a location in north Spokane County, where Finney picked up three other firearms for sale. He was arrested as they returned to the Spokane area.

Police then executed a search warrant at his apartment, 13110 N. Addison St., and seized the drug evidence, according to an affidavit. Finney was arrested with a loaded a Colt MK IV Series 80, which police seized, as well as the guns for sale: a .38, a cap and ball revolver, a Mossberg 500-A shotgun, a Bolt action M77 Ruger rifle and a Hawken black Powder Rifle.

Finney is a convicted felon, which prohibits him from possessing weapons. His felony convictions include delivery of methamphetamine, third-degree assault and second-degree burglary.

In 2001, he fled the Public Safety Building just as a judge was to sentence him to jail for domestic violence. He was caught hiding behind a garbage bin behind Russell Van Camp's law office west of the courthouse on West Broadway Avenue, according to news archives.
