Man wanted for leading organized crime

A suspected methamphetamine dealer who investigators say equipped his Spokane Valley home with surveillance video and a tripwire while orchestrating an identity theft scheme is wanted by police.

 Detectives spent months building a case against Ronald R. Foreman, (left) who left jail on $40,000 bond after a SWAT team raid at his home on 21st Avenue off Evergreen Road last March.

Crime Stoppers this week issued a reward for tips that lead to his capture on a new charge of leading organized crime in a case that depends on testimony from convicted criminals, including a woman who identified herself as the ex-girlfriend of Foreman and his wife.

Foreman faces about 10 to 15 years in prison if convicted.
