Drug unit shortens dealer’s report time

 A methamphetamine dealer ordered to report to jail by last Sunday arrived early thanks to the Spokane Police Department's drug unit.

 Gerald A. Oglesbee, 42, had been ordered Jan. 3 to report to jail by last weekend to begin a 45-month prison sentence for four drug convictions.

Drug detectives arrested him on new drug charges Jan. 11 while searching his home in the 2200 block of East Pacific Avenue.

Oglesbee was arrested in December 2010 and last May after detectives on both occasions found meth at a home in the 1700 block of East 1st Avenue.

Police allege he was selling heroin while out of jail awaiing resolution of those cases - a confidential informant bought the drug from him using an “unwitting individual” twice in November, according to court documents.

Detectives also followed Oglesbee in December from the Pacific Avenue address to a home in he 2200 block of East Boone Avenue, where they had arrested a woman on heroin charges three weeks earlier. Police say he stayed at the Boone Avenue home a short while - consistent with a drug deal.

Oglesbee was to be arraigned on the new heroin charge today, but prosecutors have not yet filed charges.

He remains in the Spokane County Jail waiting transport to prison. He has 10 previous felony convictions and four as a juvenile, as well as at least 17 misdemeanor convictions.

Drug suspects lose meth, children in raid

A Spokane man awaiting trial on methamphetamine charges was arrested today during a SWAT team raid at his home.

Gerald A. Ogelsbee faces new meth charges in an investigation that led to four children being taken by Child Protective Services today, according to the Spokane County Sheriff's Office.

Oglesbee was arrested at 1724 E. 1st Ave. about 7 a.m. The sheriff's SWAT team and drug detectives also raided a home at 4005 E. Fifth Ave., where they arrested Cheryll M. Anstine, 41, Diania Anstine, 63, and Tianna R. Hurd, 29.  A 17-year-old boy also was arrested on a warrant for second-degree trespass.

The four children at the home were 8 to 16 years old. Investigators also recovered a 1990 Acura Integra stolen from the Northtown Mall Wednesday, less than 24 hours after the theft. They recovered also the vehicle owner’s credit cards and checkbooks and seized other items associated with identity theft, according to the sheriff's office.

Oglesbee and Cheryll Anstine each face four counts of delivery of meth related to drug sales to a confidential informant.

Diania Anstine and Hurd face single counts of delivery of a controlled substance. Police found OxyContin, Ambien and methamphetamine today, which may lead to further charges.

Oglesbee was arrested on meth delivery charges last December, along with Hurd, and left jail on $5,000 bond. His trial in that case is set to begin July 11.

Raid reveals meth, cash, Hydrocodone

A Spokane man was arrested this morning with a half-ounce of methamphetamine, $5,000 and a quantity of Hydrocodone.

Gerald A. Oglesbee, 41, (pictured in 2007) was booked into Spokane County Jail on three counts of delivery of meth and one count of possession of meth with intent to deliver, according to a news release by the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office.

The Investigative Task Force says Oglesbee, 6-foot-4 and 240 pounds, had video surveillance at his home at 1724 E. 1st Ave. when they arrived about 9 a.m.

The raid followed three undercover purchases of methamphetamine from the suspect, police said. Oglesbee’s previous convictions include burglary, bail jumping, assault and a firearms violation.

Also arrested at the home was Tianna R. Hurd, 28. She was booked into the Spokane County Jail on a previously issued civil bench warrant, according to a news release.
