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.

Police arrest heroin suspects near school

Spokane police arrested four people today on suspicion of selling heroin across the street from an elementary school.

Drug detectives had used a confidential informant to conduct undercover purchases at the apartment, located in the upstairs of a home at 1723 E. Mission Ave., before police raided the place about 1 p.m., said Officer Tim Moses.

The home is near Stevens Elementary School.

“They were literally across the street from that playground,” Moses said. “You can throw a rock and hit a kid.”

Police recovered a small amount of heroin and arrested two men and two women. Their names were not immediately available. Moses said the group sold heroin from the home during the day while children played nearby

He said the suspects had syringes loaded with heroin when police arrived.

“It looked like they tried to unload some of their syringes by spraying them against the wall, but it didn't work,” Moses said.

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.
