A suspicious vehicle report in north Spokane led deputies to arrest a wanted man on new drug charges early today.
Deputies were watching a Suzuki that was parked on he wrong side of the road in the area of 630 West Ivanhone Road when they contacted the driver, Bryan E. Aden, 42, and asked what he and his passenger,
Jason William Gilmore, also 42, were dong out at 2 a.m., according to the Spokane County Sheriff's Office.
Gilmore said they were gong to his mother's house near Chattaroy to help her, deputies say.
Deputies say Gilmore gave them permission to look inside a backpack, which contained a ski mask, tire iron, taped-up wrench and a flashlight with a blue lens cover.
Gilmore also had a felony warrant for his arrest through the Washington Department of Corrections. He was arrested for that as well as a new charge of possession of burglary tools. He also faces a drug charge after deputies found meth in a small vial where he had been standing.
Aden was cited and released for third-degree driving while license suspended.
